Samsung has dropped the cost of its mobile device management (MDM) suite Knox software free.
You don’t get all of Knox for that price, as $0 what you’ll pay for a new “Express” version of the service offering basic MDM features like a cloud management portal and the ability to create a password-protected partition in which employer-provisioned apps and data are accessible. Outfits with more than 250 devices to manage will need the new dollar-a-month “Premium” edition, which adds Active Directory integration, application white-and-blacklisting and the ability to manage mobile devices according to centralised policies.
For those of you who don’t know, Samsung KNOX Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) is a complete set of cloud-based MDM, Identity Access Management (IAM) and security services for efficient and convenient enterprise mobility management. These services extend to cross-platform devices and enable users to easily access mobile apps with a single click using Single Sign-On (SSO). Businesses can provide IT administrators remote control of user devices and applications through KNOX EMM Admin Portal, or allow employees to manage their own devices with the KNOX EMM User Portal.
