Samsung's mobile security solution Knox has clinched security certifications in China and France, the company announced on Thursday, paving way for the firm to secure government and enterprise clients there.

Knox received approval from the China Information Security Certification Center (ISCCC) and Agence Nationale de la Securite des Systemes d'Information (ANSSI), Samsung said in a statement.

The ISCCC tested the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5, and Samsung will now be able to supply the phones to government agencies and financial institutions in China.

The ANSSI, meanwhile, tested Knox Workspace 2.3, and earned the CSPN (Certification de Securite de Premier Niveau), which is the highest safety grade given by the agency.

Samsung previously earned certification for the defence department in the US, as well as government approvals in the UK, Finland, and Russia.

Samsung offers different packages of Knox solutions, from the personal level to the pricier, large-scale enterprise level.
