What is the Knox Deployment Program?

The Knox Deployment Program allows authorised resellers of Samsung devices, like Hardsoft, to simply register our enterprise clients’ Samsung devices onto a Knox server.

Once your Samsung Galaxy Book laptops are registered, your business can access services like Knox Mobile Enrolment and Knox Configure as well as other cloud services.

On the Knox Deployment Program, you’ll be able to easily view and manage all your Samsung devices across Knox web services.

You can register a large number of devices in bulk via their IDs for a hyper efficient experience. This then enables perfect, frictionless remote configuration for devices. This will allow you to setup your Galaxy Book laptops so that they are ready to go out-of-the-box.

Having configured your parameters to ensure how staff can use your devices, you have granular control over access and data security.

The Knox Deployment Program is frequently used in conjunction with Knox Mobile Enrolment and Knox Manage.

By using Knox Deployment Program and Knox Mobile Enrolment, it is straightforward to integrate all your business Samsung devices into your MDM or EMM.

What is Knox Mobile Enrolment?

Knox Mobile Enrolment is one of Samsung’s cloud-based services allowing you to register any Samsung smartphone or tablet into your MDM or EMM.

What Is An MDM?

MDM stands for Mobile Device Management. This allows companies to remotely configure and oversee their devices, including BYOD (Bring Your Own Devices).

The result is that both company-leased devices and employees’ personal devices can be registered on the same system. When using company servers, the business can control what level of access its staff can gain and utilise.

Using an MDM you could restrict access to certain apps, disallow the movement of data from one app to the next, monitor usage and more. Some MDMs enable you to block and wipe a stolen or lost device to protect confidential company data.

What Is An EMM?

Enterprise Mobile Management. It is very similar to an MDM but there are some differences. An EMM is actually a collective set of technology, but also policies and practices which allow the management of mobile devices for business use.

What Is The Difference Between an MDM and EMM?

An MDM will only manage the features of a device, but an EMM controls and manages the entire device.

An EMM is a combo of an MDM and a MAM (mobile application management). On top of the abilities of an MDM, an EMM usually provides a complete package of services to ensure maximum device security.

EMM provides policy compliance, app customization, data and document security and incorporates into the network directory services.

What Is Knox Manage?

Knox Manage is Samsung’s very own branded EMM solution. It enables a detailed level of device customisation and security for businesses with Samsung devices, including Galaxy Book laptops.

Once registered with the Knox Deployment Program, it is easy to integrate with an EMM like Knox Manage.

This EMM is perfectly optimised for Samsung.

How Can The Knox Deployment Program Help Businesses?

There are three ways to register (or upload) a device into the Samsung Knox cloud system: the Knox Deployment App, KDP web portal, and KDP REST APIs. Check out this tutorial.

The KDP makes registering devices highly efficient, smooth and fuss free. Once devices are registered with it, and can access other services, there are lots of possibilities for improving security.

By using these services, it is easy to manage a fleet of Samsung devices. You can use profiles for your employees to give them the apps and functionality their role requires without ever compromising on security.
