I don’t want to go into detail about the built-in security architecture of Samsung devices. Find out more about this here. From a business customer perspective, I'd like to take a brief look at the individual components of the Knox series.
Knox platform for enterprise
This solution offers IT admins the possibility to securely manage Android-based devices by Samsung such as mobile phones and tablets as well as Tizen watches for their own organisation. The built-in mechanisms range from hardware-based technologies such as runtime kernel protection in the boot sequence to encryption and separation of personal data from company data. Likewise, the platform offers various manageable functions from Samsung devices to monitoring reports for audits of company devices. You'll find a small overview here.
This cloud-based dashboard allows you to configure smartphones and tablets to your needs. This includes profiles, settings, restrictions, apps and other content. You can even customise your devices with your company's look and feel, such as having your company logo appear when the devices are turned on.
Samsung's MDM solution, so to speak, allows you to manage all mobile devices. These include devices with Android, iOS or even Windows. According to the manufacturer's own statement, this solution works best with the corresponding Galaxy devices. Of course, this also works remotely for IT admins without having the devices at hand.
The full name, Enterprise Firmware-Over-The-Air, sounds quite fancy, but it’s actually a very simple way to always get the latest security updates for all your Samsung devices, even after a timed rollout of your choice. This ensures that all devices are always running the version of the respective operating system that also supports the right enterprise apps.
