Upload a device through Knox Guard Portal

Last updated July 26th, 2023



This Knowledge Base article provides details on Knox Guard’s Upload Devices feature.

This is another method to upload a device to Knox Guard. Devices can also be uploaded via Reseller or Knox Deployment App.

Why this method of device upload?

This method of uploading devices is useful for Financial Institutions to implement Knox Guard. These financial institutions do not function as resellers and are not part of a device channel. For such customers, Knox Guard has provided a method to upload devices without depending on a Reseller.
