On Wednesday, a report from Forbes left some security experts scratching their heads, when a contributor for the publication reported that Samsung was throwing in the towel on the Knox platform.

Forbes contributor Bob Egan, who is the executive adviser and founder of the Sepharim Group, Samsung is walking away from Knox; a platform for Android designed to create secured environments to split personal and professional data on Samsung devices such as those in the Galaxy series.

"After 18 months of going it alone and spending untold sums of money on development and marketing, Samsung is throwing in the towel on Knox. Google is stepping up to take the lead on Android security," Egan wrote.
