Overview

Knox Configure is a cloud-based service that empowers enterprises to configure, customize, and automate enrollment of Samsung devices that are purchased from authorized Samsung resellers. It simplifies the out-of-box experience by leveraging features from the Knox Customization, Knox Standard, and Knox Premium SDKs.

Requirements

How it Works

Using a web-based console, IT admins or System Integrators create profiles with the device settings, restrictions, apps, and other content that they want to deploy to groups of devices. After devices have been successfully enrolled into the enterprise, they will receive device profiles via Wi-Fi or mobile data.
