Bring your Samsung Galaxy S5 to work with Knox 2.0


Samsung’s Galaxy S5 might be dust and water resistant, but the company’s flagship smartphone is now ready to take on the roughest of terrains — the office. Today, the South Korean electronics manufacturer announced a new version of its Knox security software that lets GS5 owners use their phone at their job. Rebranded as Knox Workspace, this updated platform features two new cloud-based services Knox EMM and Knox Marketplace. The former gives your employer’s IT department remote access to your device, while the latter is the software’s dedicated app store.

Focused on separating business from pleasure, Knox 2.0 offers split billing, which gives you the option of separate bills for business and personal use. Knox Workspace is currently available on the Galaxy S5, but will needed to be enabled by your company’s IT team. Samsung says it will bring the platform to other devices in the coming months.
