(Visitor parking instructions)



I will present in this talk my experience with the industry during the leave from the University. I have been architecting, developing and marketing an Android enterprise security platform called Samsung KNOX. KNOX is embedded in all flagship mobile devices that Samsung ships today and is the main enterprise program for Samsung. Below I will discuss the initial architecture, evolution, and market momentum of KNOX.


The evolution of Samsung's Secure Enterprise Mobile Platform called KNOX not only addresses the needs of security in the Enterprise but also demonstrates Samsung's commitment to the B2B market. The current trend of BYOD and consumerization of IT makes Samsung's efforts to secure the Android platform more important than ever. The evolution of KNOX is based on more security, more features, more usability and ecosystem growth. With all this, KNOX has realized innovation for Enterprise technology to be able to influence the most highly regulated and forward-thinking industry customers
