Android Enterprise (Advanced) profiles

Last updated May 3rd, 2024

Knox Mobile Enrollment is a service under the umbrella of the Knox Suite bundle of products. It provides seamless, reliable setup and enrollment of company-owned Samsung devices in EMMs.

For active Knox Suite license holders, Knox Mobile Enrollment offers advanced profiles, an enhanced type of profile that complements regular profiles and ensures secure deployment by providing you more controls for locking devices in unexpected scenarios. More specifically, advanced profiles let you:

  • Automatically lock a device if a device user attempts to bypass provisioning and registration.
  • Remotely lock a device to prevent information security leaks in the event of device loss or theft.
  • Immediately lock a device if it becomes rooted or starts running unofficial firmware.
  • Easily lock or unlock one or more devices in one swift action and monitor their lock statuses.
  • Unlock a device in secure offline environments using a one-time PIN.
