To get started with Knox

Samsung SDS Knox (Enterprise Mobility Management) is a powerful cloud-based service for IT admins to manage the mobile devices in an enterprise. Through Knox, you can set device policies (like password rules, installed apps, VPN connections), manage app licenses, locate devices, and remotely lock or wipe devices that have been lost or stolen.

As shown in the illustration above, Knox supports enterprises that already use Microsoft Active Directory to manage employees and devices. You can install a Knox proxy to set device policies from Active Directory. You can also import employee profiles into the EMM cloud service, and further set up employee profiles from the cloud service.

The cloud service provides two types of portals:

  • Admin portal — IT admins can use this central console to manage the mobile devices in their organization.
  • User portal — Individual device users have their own console to manage their own device and apps.

This How To page describes how to register to use Knox, get a KNOX Workspace license, log into the EMM Admin Portal, and verify that you have a license.
