What is Samsung Knox and what can I use it for?

At many companies, it's becoming increasingly normal for employees to bring their own smartphone, tablet, or laptop for work. It's important for their employers that any stored business related information remains secure. Samsung Knox will take care of this for you. But what exactly is Samsung Knox and what can it be used for? I'll explain it all in this article.

What is Samsung Knox?

What is Samsung Knox?

With Samsung Know, you can secure and manage the business data on the smartphones and tablets of your employees, keeping company data confidential. Samsung Knox consists of 4 paid licenses: Knox Configure, Knox Manage, Samsung Knox E-FOTA, and Knox Platform for Enterprise. There's a fifth, free license: Mobile Enrollment, which lets you roll out the paid licenses across several devices. Are you already using a Mobile Device Management system within your company? Then you can easily expand it with the Knox solutions.

Samsung Knox Platform for Enterprise

With Knox Platform for Enterprise, business and private domains are kept separate, which prevents business and private apps from exchanging data. As a result, your employees can freely use their phones without compromising any business data. If you want to use a business app, you can log in using your PIN code or fingerprint scanner. Business data is securely locked away when the phone is stolen.

Other than securing your company phones, you can also ensure that all of these devices look alike, software-wise. Knox Configure allows you, as employer, to decide what the home screen looks like, which connection options for the internet are available, and which ringtone the phone uses. Because everything is alike, it is easy for employees to switch phones. In cooperation with the free Knox Mobile Enrollment, the roll-out of the Knox platform on multiple devices runs smoothly.

Samsung Knox Manage

Samsung Knox Manage

Knox Manage is a multi-platform management solution that allows you to manage both Android and non-Android devices. This license allows the IT administrator to remotely reset and lock smartphones or tablets. Knox provides full control of the digital work environment. You can tell your employees to set up a mandatory encryption on their devices, for example, so you can rest assured that your company data is secure. When someone tries to hack into the phone, the Samsung Knox environment triggers a force-shutdown mechanism.

Samsung Knox E-FOTA

FOTA stands for Firmware Over The Air. Samsung Knox E-FOTA helps you to effortlessly install software updates and security updates. With Knox E-FOTA, the IT manager first tests whether the internal apps are still compatible after installing the update. That way, you'll prevent the whole staff from being stuck with non-functional apps. Once everything's tested, it's possible to push the updates to all employees, so the update can be installed before a certain date. This way, your phones will always be up to date and the company will be as secure as possible.

Samsung Knox Mobile Enrollment

Knox Mobile Enrollment is a free service that the IT administrator at your company can use to roll out a paid Knox license across multiple devices. You can also use Mobile Enrollment to roll out other management systems, such as Airwatch or Mobileiron. The Samsung Knox license is added to new devices using their IMEI numbers. If an employee activates a new phone and connects to WiFi, the license is automatically installed. This saves you time, because the IT administrator will no longer have to do it manually.
