This is protection. Samsung Knox

 

Remember the good old days? The morning commute and the 9-to-5? Well, those days are history.

Forget being tied to a desk and a schedule. Today’s workplace has nothing to do with time or place and everything to do with productivity and mobility. Without compromise. Today’s employees want the same access, speed and resources of the office, even if they’re three time zones and two continents away.

While mobile, employees spend a significant amount of time outside of their protected corporate networks as they access the web from locations other than their offices. This can expose businesses to more attacks, errors, leaks and new dangers we haven’t even encountered…
