Leading the Way in Mobile Galaxy Security

Samsung prides itself in offering unmatched galaxy security to its users with Samsung Knox, its defense-grade security platform, and cutting-edge technologies such as the industry’s strongest security chip, the embedded Secure Element (eSE); a Secure Processor to protect against physical attacks; and the recently introduced Knox Vault, which adds another layer of galaxy security.

As one of the few companies to design and develop its own products, software, and services, Samsung offers true end-to-end protection, from the moment new product planning begins until a product is retired. By embedding galaxy security across every single layer of its devices, from the chip all the way up to the apps, Samsung can protect personal information in real-time and preemptively respond to increasingly advanced mobile threats.

“At Samsung, our number one priority is offering the best and most secure mobile experience to our users, and we’re constantly optimizing the security of our products and services,” said Seungwon Shin, VP & Head of Security Team at Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “Mobile devices play such an important role in our lives, it’s only natural that we want to hold onto them longer. That’s why, thanks to the latest technology advancements, we’re committing to securing Galaxy devices for even longer, so that everything that should be kept protected stays protected.”
