Benefits

Quick & easy access to Knox capabilities

Use a web-based iframe to provide enterprise IT admins with central and remote configuration of Knox features on enterprise devices.

Zero-day support for new features

Once we push our Knox Service Plugin app to Google Play, you have instant access to our latest Knox features.

No device app development required

Samsung develops the device app that handles IT configuration of Knox features. You no longer need months of development time to customize your own app using third-party SDKs.

Low total cost of ownership for supporting Knox

All that’s needed is a one-time setup of an iframe to support all current and future Knox features. Samsung handles the rest.

Support for customized user experience (UX)

Partners who want to fully customize their UX can still do so while leveraging the Knox Service Plugin for new features. Use our powerful Knox SDK for unmatched control of Samsung devices.

UEM/MDM partners

With the growing variety of enterprise endpoints and fragmentation in proprietary third-party tools, industry standardization is a welcome respite.

The AppConfig community of UEM and ISV providers has devised a common, simple, and innovative way for enterprises to configure mobile apps. Our Knox Service Plugin uses this community standard and is already supported by several UEM partners.
