Samsung has announced the worldwide launch of the second version of its Knox data and app security platform, although currently only the new Galaxy S5 can take advantage of the improvements it offers, PC World has reported. The Knox platform uses a security-enhanced version of Android, and creates an isolated “container” that separates work data and apps from personal data. Knox 2.0 is currently pre-installed on the Galaxy S5, and more devices will receive it via OS upgrades in the coming months, the company said without offering any details.
