Superior Security for Connected Enterprises with Samsung on Android
Android now powers more than four fifths of the world’s mobile devices, and that percentage is only expected to rise in the years to come. Even as its popularity grows, there are still a surprising number of people who are not yet aware just how impressive Android’s security landscape is, especially for connected enterprises.
For example, Google uses a multi-tiered security model that has recently been given some major improvements. The Android security ecosystem also provides Google security services such as Verify apps, which checks every application installed on the device to protect it from potentially harmful applications. Verify Apps performs more than 200 million security scans on devices each day, and it is responsible for cutting the number of infected apps that are downloaded from non-Google-Play app stores by half.
Meanwhile, Safety Net ensures that the device operates as expected and protects users against network-level attacks, analyzing approximately 400 million network connections every day. In addition, Google delivers Android security updates every month that address new vulnerabilities and ensure timely patching for enterprise customers. For its part, Samsung releases security updates for its devices based on factors like geographic region and carrier.
Samsung KNOX: A Force To Be Reckoned With
Samsung also uses its defense-grade KNOX Mobile security platform to protect devices starting at the hardware level, from the time users get the device up and running throughout its lifecycle. This combination of security measures at the platform level and companion products ensures comprehensive security.
Tablets and smartphones that run KNOX also make use of Secure Boot and Trusted Boot, which verify the integrity and authenticity of both the boot loader modules and Android kernel. Businesses can also use enhanced KNOX capabilities for a customized solution that addresses their specific needs.
As businesses continue to be concerned about mobile malware threats, there has never been a better time to invest in the outstanding security features provided by Samsung on Android.
