An Overview of Samsung KNOX Active Directory and Group Policy Features
Samsung KNOX is a set of business focused enhancements to the Android mobile environment for selected Samsung mobile devices. One of the most important new enterprise features provided with KNOX is the ability for KNOX devices to be joined, secured and managed by a Microsoft Active Directory infrastructure. An important part of this solution allows KNOX devices to be centrally controlled by Microsoft Group Policy, a technology already in use by most enterprises. These new capabilities, developed by Centrify Corporation, allow IT administrators to centrally manage and secure KNOX devices in the same way that other IT assets are managed. This White Paper provides an overview of the Active Directory and Group Policy features and benefits and describes how these unique capabilities work within the Samsung KNOX environment.
