LG earlier this month announced Gate security technology for smartphones, and will battle with Samsung to attract enterprise adoption.
The Knox service is available worldwide, Shin said. But the BYOD trend varies in different countries, affecting which security features and mobile-device management tools are deployed.
For example, people in Germany value privacy and don't want employers to track any usage or application information, Shin said. In the U.S., users want the freedom to use social networking and other applications at work that they also use at home. In South Korea, users like to wall off personal and corporate applications.
Knox was originally announced in February at the Mobile World Congress trade show.
