Go rugged with Samsung Knox

Kendra Ellis

Rugged devices, recognizable by their extra durable hardware, shine in mobile work conditions. Expect to see them abound as we move into the Next Mobile Economy. The Future Laboratory reports that 87% of today’s business leaders look to innovative mobile tools to unlock flexibility and productivity, and that failure to update your mobile strategy could negatively affect company value.

We want to help you go beyond using mobile devices for emails, calls, and scheduling with the new Galaxy XCover Pro and enhancements to the Samsung Knox framework.

The latest Knox Service Plugin release includes features tailored for rugged use cases that you can deploy right now:

  • Let users control high traffic apps with a simple key press by mapping actions like start and quit directly to special hot keys on the Galaxy XCover 4S and Galaxy XCover Pro.
  • Cut down on charging downtime and energy consumption by automatically shutting off a device when it’s been idle for 10 minutes or more.
  • Get maximum utility from your device inventory by setting or disabling multi-user mode without user intervention.

Each purpose-built feature supports new ways of working in fields like retail, logistics, and healthcare, and is backed by the secure Knox platform for seamless integration.

For more details on Knox Service Plugin version 1.1.92 and how to configure the above-mentioned controls, see the Samsung Knox guide for IT admins. And check out the new Galaxy XCover Pro’s specs for more ideas on how Samsung can help you go rugged.
