Knox Manage

Last updated July 26th, 2023

Knox Manage is a mobile device management (MDM) solution that provides a cloud-based command center with almost 300 enterprise policies to empower IT admins to remotely track, manage, configure, and send messages to devices.

This solution can manage any Android, iOS, or Windows 10 or Windows 11 device, but for maximum security, we recommend Samsung Galaxy devices integrated with the Knox platform.
