Our Perspective on Samsung Knox
By Darren Rawlinson, Mobile Solutions Manager
A lot of resellers will come to us and say, “My customer would like to have Samsung Knox”. This is excellent, as it means they’re interested in managing, protecting and securing their mobile devices. But it’s usually a surprise when my answer is “That’s great; what part of Samsung Knox is it they want?”
Samsung Knox isn’t just one piece of software; it’s not even only software. It’s a whole solution from the device chipset right through to defence grade encryption.
So, let’s start with the device itself
Samsung Knox starts out as a chipset, unique to Samsung devices. Even at the point of manufacture, the security kicks in, with the casing of the chip shredded so no one can know what unique chip is inside the device!
The device is secured from the very moment it’s activated, the hardware checks the software and vice versa, making sure nothing has been hacked. Until you open up the device with your fingerprint or pattern or PIN, everything is encrypted.
Now the opportunity really starts
The range of software allows us to maximise the unique Samsung Knox chipset to its full potential. All the software is accessible and managed by the customer at www.samsungknox.com, and your customer will create their login there.
Knox Mobile Enrolment (KME)
KME is free of charge and doesn’t require a licence. KME enrolls your device, seamlessly over the air, to a given Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution. There are many MDM solutions out there, and KME can handle most, if not all.
We load the IMEI of the devices into a master Samsung portal, and they will present themselves within the customers portal. From there, the customer creates a simple profile that will point the device at the MDM solution. When the device powers on for the first time, it calls ‘home’ to Samsung, who instruct the device ‘hey we know you, this is who you belong to’ and sends the profile, as created, to the device. The person holding the device cannot stop this process, it’s nice and simple and all done over-the-air.
Knox Configure is unique to Samsung as a customisation and configuration solution. Requiring a licence, Knox Configure will change the look, feel and use of a device, to make it your device in the user’s hands. From the home and lock screens fixed with an organisations logo, setting the volume or other features so changes cannot be made, right through to applications being placed on the device or blocked.
Content such as a PDF, maybe a User Guide, and applications can be placed by the administrator exactly where you want them to be on the screen. No other manufacturer allows you to tailor the look and feel of a device like this.
All this is sent over-the-air, and to create the profiles takes just a few minutes of work, using a simple set of menus.
Knox Manage is Samsung’s’ full MDM solution. Of all the Knox elements, this one isn’t just restricted to just Samsung devices either. Knox Manage stands up to scrutiny against all the other best in class MDM solutions and can manage other Android devices as well as Apple.
Fully featured, this MDM can do all the usual find, lock, wipe etc. of a device and so much more. Using Android Enterprise device management or DEP for Apple, this is a fully-fledged device management tool allowing total control of a device for the administrator. It also includes a simple to use Kiosk Studio, allowing us to create fixed templates of how a device should present itself to the user. Also, we can set device behaviours to change automatically based on the day of the week and even the time of the day, or where the device physically is.
Unique to Samsung devices, Knox E-FOTA allows your customers to control the system updates and security patches the devices receive. All devices are on a FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) server. This is how important updates are sent.
E-FOTA takes Samsung devices ‘off the grid’, and gives the administrator full control of the updates, not only when, but how they are sent to the devices. Maybe only on Sundays, only if there is Wi-Fi and enough battery left; all these parameters can be set.
Knox Platform For Enterprise (KPE)
KPE is where we deliver the defence grade solution. It is a secure container on a Samsung device, essentially giving another device within a device; it could be used to split work and personal use and applications, or more likely, use this separate container (requiring its own PIN or pattern to get into it) for other work applications.
Nothing can move between the ‘standard’ part of the device and the secure KPE folder. If your customer takes a photo while in the secure area. It will not be in the gallery on the standard part of the device, and so on.
All the solutions are available as separate licences and can be combined to provide a solution to fit the customer’s needs. Moreover, a combined package of KME, Knox Manage, E-FOTA and KPE are now available combined (known as ‘Knox Suite’) delivering all the very best of Samsung Knox at an attractive package price.
