General consumers are not always the major target for electronics brands, sometimes enterprise comes first in priority for a better business. The wearable industry which has seen some extent of success in the consumer space has already started tapping the Enterprise space to explore more opportunities. But to appeal enterprise users, there are two key features that need to be ensured are of the highest order- Productivity and Security. When it comes to productivity, the availability of standard apps and services is of high importance which is general for any wearable brand. But security is where things get difficult.

Samsung has taken up the task to make it easier for developers to make their apps enterprise ready with top security measures. To achieve this, Samsung released the Knox Tizen SDK for Wearables sometime ago. Now, Samsung has released v2.2 of the SDK with a number of changes and improvements to further improve security measures. All that developers need to do is integrate the Knox Tizen SDK for wearables in their apps and they’re ready to be deployed.

Some of the key features that have been added in v2.2 are-
