New container architecture overview

Samsung has released its latest version of the Knox platform on Android Oreo, with a series of updates designed to easier deploy, manage, and develop for mobile devices in enterprise environments. We’ve updated the Knox Platform for Enterprise solution with a new Workspace container architecture to enhance user experience.

  • Knox APIs can now control Android Work profiles.
  • Android Work Profiles can easily be upgraded to Knox Workspace without wiping your device.

As part of this change, customers can leverage Knox features and APIs on Android’s Work Profile and Work Managed Device modes. A device user with Profile Owner privileges can activate a Knox License and leverage Knox features on Android Work Profile. Similarly, a user with Device Owner privileges can activate a Knox License and leverage Knox features on an Android Work Managed device. Customers no longer have to choose between Android Enterprise and Knox.
