Samsung KNOX found to be vulnerable by the security testers

According to the survey, world have already shifted to the new era of iOS and Android, leaving BlackBerry OS far behind than these two tech-giants.In order to gain market shares and to create a perfect connection between the corporate world and Google's OS, Samsung created KNOX.The purpose of creating it is to impose and ignite such an environment which can fortify the Android world and the business environments.

However, Samsung's firm belief about its high-tech security system 'KNOX' demolished as by the report that it has been found to be vulnerable, meaning that the hackers and the anti-social sources can easily crack into its data.According to cyber security researchers at Ben Gurion University of the Negev in Israel, emails and data communications on Samsung devices are non-protective and can easily be exploit.The biggest harm a hacker can try to give is it can insert a hostile code via breach, which can somehow harm the system widely.

In order to justify, Samsung has denied KNOX to be vulnerable as by the Samsung itself, the device in which security breaching was tested didn't have all the KNOX features installed.

The most widely used Samsung's device these days, Galaxy S4, has now been adopted by the use of US Government, even within Pentagon.It is now confirm that if Samsung wouldn't been so secured enough, then there could be no chance that US Government could use a foreign manufacturer's device.But if the reports are true, then Samsung's KNOX has to be considered as a biggest failure.
