KPE feature update — Knox 3.5

Knox 3.5 introduces new settings for granular control over areas like user experience, roaming, and certificate management. Most of these features come with the Samsung Knox Service Plugin (KSP), meaning IT Admins can use them immediately upon release.

For more details on putting these features into action, see the latest release notes for KSP.

VPN over tethering

Enable VPN client sharing over USB from a Samsung mobile device to a white-listed corporate laptop or desktop for optimum usage of VPN licenses and seamless employee access to enterprise resources. For security reasons, IT Admins can also disable this connectivity option.

2nd SIM

Control a device's 2nd SIM user interface with the following options:

  • Enable
