Knox features give admins control over a wide range of settings at the granular level for full control of corporate-liable devices. After deployment, the devices can receive server push notifications to dynamically update apps and configurations. With these features, warehouse IT managers can ensure that software is consistent across multiple locations and user groups with enterprise-wide over-the-air updates, without having to visit warehouse locations.
Admins can also create purpose-built appliances, transforming off-the-shelf devices into single-purpose devices and deliver only the user experience required to meet business needs.
Configuration options include locking down devices to leave only mission-critical access available. All connectivity settings, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC and Flight mode, can be turned off. Additionally, mobile data and SIM lock functions can be remotely managed. For an additional layer of security, admins can also deactivate pre-installed bloatware.
Device features can be managed to maintain security including restricted roaming and tethering, SD card and USB storage lockout and disabling the camera and microphone.
Knox Configure enables device customization with only the apps required for the tasks, and the home and lock screens can be designed to provide relevant corporate information to users. Customized shortcuts provide access to commonly used content, such as corporate websites, important phone numbers and other inventory information.
