In case you missed it, Samsung Knox has verified Mobile Device Manager Plus as a Knox Validated Partner solution. This means that our EMM solution meets its business-level requirements for 2022, and that we support a wide range of features to help you get the best out of all your mobile devices that support Samsung Knox capabilities.

What are Samsung Knox devices and their benefits?

Most Samsung devices come with a built-in security framework called Knox that enables device features or hardware to be easily managed and secured from malware, data leaks, and theft. These devices are labelled Samsung Knox devices, and they can be granularly controlled by organizations for better data security and to properly utilize Samsung-specific features like S Voice, Smart Clip, or Smart Switch.

How can Mobile Device Manager Plus specifically help with Samsung Knox device management?

An MDM solution like Mobile Device Manager Plus can help organizations with Samsung devices take device management up a notch with easy but efficient device enrollment, a plethora of security policies and restrictions, remote troubleshooting, end-to-end app management for both Store and in-house apps, and reactive measures in the event of lost or stolen devices.

With an MDM solution in place, you can leverage standard Knox capabilities like Knox Mobile Enrollment (KME), Knox Platform for Enterprise (KPE), the Knox Service Plugin (KSP), and Knox containers. Let’s dig a little deeper into each of these features.

Getting your devices on the MDM train: Simple and automated device enrollment

Enterprises that need to roll out devices to employees out of the box and in bulk may find it challenging to manually bring these devices under management. With KME, you can onboard devices in bulk and skip certain configurations. This ensures that the devices handed out are already secured and employees can use them immediately, eliminating the need for them to configure settings themselves.

 The best part about enrolling devices using KME is that users cannot revoke device management regardless of whether the device is factory reset or not. This lets you have continuous control over all enrolled devices.

Take security to another level: High-end, Samsung-specific security features

Now that devices are enrolled, it’s time to set up required policies and disable functionalities based on the level of security needed. Samsung’s Knox containers are virtual containers that segregate corporate data to be securely managed and maintained so a user’s personal data doesn’t tamper with business-critical resources. Also, a password specifically for the container can be configured so access to corporate apps, content, and files and the transfer of sensitive information is protected.

 You can also harness Samsung-only functionalities using the KSP, an original equipment manufacturer configuration app. Multiple policies like the firmware update policy (FOTA), VPNs, device key mapping, firewall and proxy settings, and device customization controls can be remotely configured using the KSP. Previously, a paid KPE license was needed to use these features. Since KPE licenses are now free, all that’s left is for you to obtain a license key and upload it to your MDM console.

What else does Mobile Device Manager Plus offer apart from Samsung Knox device management?
