Analyst Explains Why Samsung Knox Has Flopped

Samsung Knox Flopped

A year ago Samsung flooded the market with their vaporware product called Samsung Knox. This product was intended to compete with BlackBerry and take over the enterprise market by providing a secure Android solution. Now a year later the product has been a complete flop and Samsung seems to have moved on from positioning themselves as a direct competitor to BlackBerry.

Earlier this week Jay sent me this great research note from Blue Hill Research that was published in December of last year detailing “Why Samsung Knox has Flopped.” The author, Ralph Rodriguez, lists out six reasons why the Knox solution has failed miserably to gain any traction. The list is mostly still relevant and worth pointing out. With Samsung still trying to make Knox relevant, John Chen has the chance to reiterate why enterprises and governments should stick with BlackBerry. Hopefully he makes good use Samsung’s troubles.

  1. John Sims, BlackBerry’s Global Enterprise Services president, explained very well why Samsung has failed with Knox.

    “…security is hard and it is not possible to condense thousands of person years of learning into 12 short months.”

    Chen is right to focus on security at a time when organizations and individuals are finally realizing the importance of it.

  2. I still can’t open the article…

  3. That’s strange. It’s working fine for me.

  4. But Knox is not the only player. Airwatch has simplified it’s billing structure and is attracting lots of customers.
