Actually, I think that we will be seeing more of this security situation from other handset manufacturers who are keen to get their handsets accepted by government and large corporations, who demand enhanced security for BYOD.

Have added yet another paragraph, #1.4, to the rapidly growing post #1. This concerns reports that I have been reading on other forums that those who have upgraded to the latest bootlocked and Knox security firmwares, even though they are not rooted, have been experiencing problems with some of the Play Store apps that are possibly being treated as security breaches by Knox.

FYI: Knox requires a locked bootloader to operate.

It is named after the United States bullion depository, often referred to as Fort Knox, in Kentucky, which featured in the James Bond film, Goldfinger, starring Sean Connery.
