Knox Platform for Enterprise

Comprehensive mobile security and management

Knox Platform for Enterprise is our most robust mobile security solution, and has been designed to meet the stringent needs of leading governments and regulated industries.

Featuring advanced configuration and management options, robust VPN connectivity, and comprehensive data usage analytics, Knox Platform for Enterprise should be the cornerstone of your mobile security strategy.

*Knox Platform for Enterprise is the updated Knox Workspace solution. It allows IT admins to access the full range of Knox platform features without creating an on-device container. Admins may still deploy the Knox Workspace managed container if they choose.

Containerization with Workspace

IT admins have the option of deploying an on-device container for advanced security and management features.

Unlike other containerization solutions, the keys for encrypting and decrypting the Knox Workspace container are derived in the device chipset. Any apps, email or files stored in the Knox Workspace container are encrypted and can only be accessed when the user enters their PIN, password, pattern, or through biometric authentication.

If the device is ever compromised, the Knox Warranty Bit will fuse and the Knox Workspace container will permanently lock down to prevent data leakage.

Knox Workspace features include:

Remote container lock by IT admin.

If a device is compromised, the container gets locked permanently.

Flexible container unlock methods, including 2-step authentication or Active Directory-based unlock.

Government-grade security for your enterprise

Protect corporate data on a device with government-certified data encryption technology. Our solution leverages Samsung’s hardware and software integrated security architecture, the Knox Platform, and adds advanced features to meet the stringent needs of most regulated industries.

Advanced security features include:

Government-certified data encryption and password control.

Hardware-based certificate storage and management.

Individual app isolation from other applications (SE for Android Management Service).

Logging and analytics

Knox Platform for Enterprise provides powerful tools to monitor end-user activities as well as data traffic usage. Its government-certified auditing features ensure all device usage is under IT’s control.

Auditing features include:

Audit log to collect comprehensive log events from the device, including container creation/deletion, and app installation/removal.

Network Platform Analytics to monitor network activity patterns without inspecting the content of data packets.

Attestation to remotely check if the device is rooted or running unauthorized firmware.

Robust VPN connectivity

VPN is a common way of transferring sensitive data in and out of a corporate network. Knox Platform for Enterprise adds advanced features for granular VPN control and enforced configuration.

VPN features include:

Per-app/container/device VPN to configure the scope of VPN connection.

On-demand VPN for optimal connection based on target application usage.

HTTP Proxy over VPN to allow web proxy settings to function while traffic is flowing over a VPN tunnel.

Granular control & management

Remotely manage a fleet of BYOD or corporate-liable devices and push corporate apps and security policies to them. Knox Platform for Enterprise features hundreds of IT policies with regular feature updates.

Our solution seamlessly integrates with Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) providers, including VMware AirWatch, Blackberry, MobileIron, IBM, Citrix, and SOTI. Or if you don’t have an EMM, consider Knox Manage.

In addition to the basic device, app, email, and network configurations, Knox Platform for Enterprise allows IT admins to configure the following:

Certificate installation and deletion with zero user interaction.

Dual APN settings to assign different APN for particular apps.

Workspace configurations.
