Knox E-FOTA (Enterprise Firmware-Over-The-Air) is an enterprise solution that controls OS versions on Samsung mobile devices to maximize cost efficiency. Ensure latest security patches are deployed to devices on schedule. IT admins can test updates before deployment, ensuring compatibility between in-house apps and new OS versions.
With Knox E-FOTA, IT admins can choose an OS version to ensure compatibility with in-house apps. Without this service, OS updates are either blocked, or only allowed for upgrades to the latest version.
IT admins can update device OS versions without interrupting end-users. This enables IT admins to control OS versions on unattended devices as well.
IT admins can schedule OS updates for a set time and date to prevent business interruptions. If an emergency security issue arises, latest security patches are immediately deployed.
*Knox E-FOTA only guarantees that the firmware update will start at a specified time and does not guarantee the OS update duration time or end time.
IT admins can force OS updates to all of their devices. This allows for efficient device management, as all employee devices consistently run the same OS version.
