With apprehensions rife about the second wave of COVID-19, organizations around the world are finetuning their remote work strategies. Presumably, a major part of their workforces will have to work from home indefinitely, at least as it stands today. As such, there’s an increasing need to get secure, work-enabled devices in the hands of their employees at scale and without adding to a company’s IT budget or the complexity of its IT infrastructure.
Knox Mobile Enrollment (KME) is a zero-touch deployment service that allows IT admins to add hundreds of devices to a fleet at once without having to enroll each device to a UEM platform manually. The fact that IT admins do not have to physically access these devices even once to do this makes KME especially useful in the COVID-19 era. Once a device is registered and configured, all a user has to do is turn it on and connect to a 3G/4G or Wi-Fi network to initiate the device setup.
Knox Service Plugin (KSP), on the other hand, allows IT admins to deploy fully-managed devices with existing and/or new Knox features. KSP ensures that IT admins can get zero-day support for all the latest Knox Platform for Enterprise (KPE) features without having to wait for their UEM solution provider to integrate those features specifically. In addition, KSP helps enterprise customers better control the configuration and distribution of KPE features by leveraging their mobility management tool’s framework and user interface.
Thus, Samsung’s Knox Validated Program, popularly called Samsung KVP, was launched as a part of the Samsung Knox Partner program to inspire customer confidence in partner solutions, assuring them of a solution’s full support for Samsung’s latest security and management features and products. The validation program thoroughly evaluates partner mobile device management (MDM), enterprise mobility management (EMM), and unified endpoint management (UEM) solutions against a set of criteria to ensure that all Samsung features work as expected.
As a Knox Validated Partner, 42Gears fulfills all mandatory requirements and has been endorsed by Samsung for having implemented the latest key features of Samsung Knox products. This means that 42Gears’ unified endpoint management solution, SureMDM, ensures fast, seamless, and hassle-free device deployment.
Together, Samsung and 42Gears can help businesses deploy and update devices smoothly, thus ensuring that their remote workers stay productive.
