Android Enterprise VI: Knox Mobile Enrollment

Knox Mobile Enrollment

Samsung Knox Mobile Enrollment is Samsung's counterpart to the Apple Device Enrollment Program and/or Android Zero Touch Enrollment. Overall Knox Mobile Enrollment saves IT departments and users the tedious manual configuration of proprietary Samsung smartphones and tablets. Devices are pre-configured online with the settings desired by an Administrator. When booting for the first time, the devices check whether they are assigned a configuration and if so, they will download our Matrix42 Silverback Companion app which will guide the user to finish the setup.

  • IT Administrators: Can configure that new arrived devices will be automatically configured to download Matrix42 Silverback Companion
  • Your company stay in control of their devices at all times - even after factory resets.
  • End users, after receiving a boxed device, they just need to sign in.
