How Knox Guard works
You first register devices for Samsung Cloud services like Knox Guard, through either:
- Samsung Knox device resellers, who use the Knox Deployment Program console or REST APIs
- Knox Deployment App, which is designed for small-scale deployments or testing
These devices start out in a Pending state. You can approve these devices for Knox Guard payment tracking using either the Knox Guard Console or REST API call
approve. Once approved, devices transition to the Activating state. When the Knox Guard app on the device confirms activation, the device then transitions to Active.
Knox Guard can manage devices that are on either:
- Installment Plans — These devices begin in an Active state, become Locked if payments become overdue, and Payment complete when the payments are complete.
- Pay-As-You-Go Plans — These devices start in a Locked state, then become Active with the appropriate payment for a specified time period. After this period, the device becomes Locked again. Currently, these devices support all the current Knox Guard features except offline lock and default blinking reminder.
If a device is either rejected or is payment complete, it can be deleted from the Knox Guard payment tracking. Once deleted, the Knox Guard app on the device is uninstalled and the device is no longer tracked.
