Samsung's security twist: Protect yourself from IT

Galen Gruman | March 12, 2015
Walling off corporate data with from personal data via My Knox protects IT from you -- and vice versa.

I tried to use Knox EMM to manage the My Knox workspace on a Galaxy Note 4, but the enrollment only partially completed. The reason, according to Samsung: "My Knox was already installed and Knox EMM is a separate product, so there are issues with coexistence." I can attest to that.

Unfortunately, this means that if you use My Knox to keep IT out of your personal workspace, you may have to uninstall it if your company gets around to making you use its container, even a Knox one.

Still, when the notion of workspaces comes up, it's almost entirely from the perspective of IT. My Knox shows another side to the "keep my data protected" coin.
