South Korean giant Samsung on Wednesday said it is developing more powerful, secure and flexible Android to protect its customers’ privacy and the topmost priority is to safeguard critical data that belong to its government customers worldwide.

The company said it would extend its multi-layered security platform “Knox” to all the devices and appliances to safeguard sensitive information against malware and hackers.


“Governments are our biggest customers in various countries so it becomes important to invest time in the security of critical data that may range from civilian to military. We work closely with the government customers to meet their specific requirements over privacy and security,” Nick Dawson, Director B2B Product Management Group Mobile Communications Business at Samsung, told IANS.

“We also consider privacy and security of an individual’s data out top priority. As the largest Android device manufacturer, we are focused on to develop more powerful, secure and flexible Android for the customers. The idea is to build further trust among the users for our devices and we have also collaborated with our partners in India to achieve the same,” Dawson elaborated.

“Knox” is built into both the hardware and software of Samsung’s latest devices. It constantly verifies the integrity of the device through a chain of security checks that begin at the platform level and extend to the operating system and detects any tampering to ensure that your data is always secure.

The platform includes different components of device security, ranging from varying levels of device configuration to a firmly controlled military-grade mobile security platform.

“With ‘knox’, we have placed several layers of security into the heart of computing devices, securing content from hardware to software,” the Samsung executive noted.

“With the introduction of 5G globally, the use of Internet of Things (IoT) devices would definitely grow and with this, the threat of malware attacks would also increase. We are extensively working to create better solutions to protect IoT-driven products with the ‘knox’,” added Dawson.

The ‘knox’ platform helps companies ensure that the devices used by employees have isolated personal and business data environments to prevent sensitive company information, in case of risk of loss or theft.

“We want to build most secure devices for our customers and company is working towards this for the last six years,” the executive noted. (IANS)

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
