Mobile phones have often been perceived as less secure than traditional PCs. However, that’s not necessarily the case today, explains Keith Fuentes, vice president of Knox sales for Samsung Electronics America.

“Mobile phones can often be more secure [than PCs] because they have GPS, iris/retina scans and are online all the time,” said Fuentes during a conversation at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Orlando, Florida.

“Samsung invests a lot of time and energy with Knox to make sure that it meets all the protocols of a government agency,” he said, discussing the hardware-based security platform that is built into Samsung’s latest smartphones and tablets.
