Samsung Electronics’ Samsung Knox security platform is 10 years old! Taking its name from one of the most heavily guarded places in the world, Knox was first introduced at Mobile World Congress in 2013. In these 10 years, where the mobile security of users from all over the world is under protection, Samsung Knox has evolved into a holistic security platform. Samsung, which has become a brand in the security of billions of users and companies during this time, is now starting a new era in device security with Knox Matrix.
Security for our increasingly connected world
Knox Matrix expresses Samsung’s vision for a future where all devices connected to an ecosystem can protect each other and their users. This perspective of Knox Matrix, which defines a comprehensive approach to security, will become even more important as the number of connected devices in our lives increases. Many users around the world already use many connected devices such as mobile devices, TVs, refrigerators, robot vacuums. While the number of over 14 billion connected devices in the market reveals the size of the total figure, it is predicted that the number will increase even more. Despite the benefits, Samsung continues to be aware that more connected features will intensify abuse. The traditional security infrastructure, which protects individual devices, seems to be unable to keep up with this situation. The reason for this is that a single affected device in the same ecosystem can affect other devices in the ecosystem. Knox Matrix introduces a revolutionary concept that will pave the way for multi-device security for mobile phones, TVs, electrical appliances and many other devices against this possibility.
A smart home turns into a smart shield
Samsung devices are powered by Knox Matrix to protect each other in a reliable network. When any element is compromised, Knox Matrix keeps this device separate from the ecosystem, ensuring the protection of other devices. Thanks to the Knox Matrix support found throughout the devices, a smart home can turn into a smart shield. In this way, the more devices the user connects to his ecosystem, the stronger the overall security becomes. Knox Matrix has three main features that ensure its success: Trust Chain feature allows devices to track each other against threats. Credential Sync feature, while protecting user information in data transfer between devices, Cross Platform The SDK feature enables devices from different operating systems (Android, Tizen and Windows) and platforms. In this way, these systems are also included in the system with security standards compatible with Knox Matrix, while ensuring that devices remain secure even in a hyper-connected world. Knox Matrix manages this entire system in a private blockchain, allowing compatible devices to monitor each other for breaches and ensure security with intelligent threat monitoring. With these steps implemented and new features to be added, it is now aimed to ensure that users can use more than one connected device safely and comfortably.
The method that started a new era: “Stronger together”
Laying the foundations of the new era in device security is only possible with a serious evaluation process. While the Knox Matrix is being developed with firm steps, the threshold encountered brings with it some difficulties. Many different product types with changing operating systems and security standards need to be adapted to a seamless host system that can operate as a single system. As devices become more connected, Samsung needs to provide simplicity in use, and for this, Knox Matrix works to provide transparency and different options to users as well as protection. Because users also want to know that they can make informed decisions about their own devices for complete protection. Knox Matrix will also be able to warn users of potentially unsafe conditions, such as using outdated firmware, by providing recommendations on steps to follow. Knox Matrix’s power to protect connected ecosystems will be demonstrated in stages, starting with Samsung Galaxy products such as smartphones and tablets. Knox Matrix compatible models will be available from 2024, initially with Trust Chain, Credential Sync and Cross Platform SDK. With updates expected to add more features, in two or three years the Knox Matrix will expand to include Samsung home appliances and then common devices. Officials emphasize that developments are already underway for compatibility on devices offered by business partners.
End-to-end protection and real-time threat detection
Samsung, which has long ensured that different types of devices work seamlessly and together through SmartThings, works closely with trusted industry partners and security-focused communities, in line with open collaboration policies. In this way, it expands its scope by setting safety standards and detects defects before they become problems. In short, the more eyes do the same control in Samsung, the better the result. This background is the basis of security on all Samsung Galaxy devices. End-to-end protection and real-time threat detection, in all layers of products. According to officials, the Knox Matrix is the most recent phase in the innovative history of Samsung Knox security. Samsung recently introduced the Knox Vault, which separates users’ sensitive information from the rest of the device and prevents it from falling into the wrong hands. Security enhancements made in the past include TrustZone. TrustZone creates a secure environment in the host operating system, allowing sensitive applications and processes to run separately from ordinary software. In this way, work and entertainment can coexist on the same device. Samsung Knox has also been redeveloped as the Knox Suite, providing businesses and key organizations around the world with an efficient security system, bringing device fleets together with customizable and easy-to-manage software and end-to-end security.
