Granular Device Management – Split Billing (Dual APN)

Granular Device Management – Split Billing (Dual APN)

Split billing separates enterprise and personal data usage.

 

In Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) deployments, enterprise billing allows employees to be properly compensated for data costs generated from work-related app usage.
In Corporately Owned, Personally Enabled (COPE) deployments, enterprise billing allows employers to pay for data usage incurred only for work purposes.

 

Split billing also works with dual SIM devices, by mapping some apps to using the data plan from one SIM, and other apps to the other SIM’s data plan.

Granular Device Management – Remote Admin Lock of Device

Granular Device Management – Remote Admin Lock of Device

This feature allows an IT admin to remotely lock out a device, for example, when the device is out of compliance. Once the device is locked, only an IT admin can unlock it and not a device user. This functionality solves two problems:

 

Prevents unauthorized users from accessing the device if it gets lost or stolen.
Prevents users with valid login credentials from using the device, for example, if the credentials are stolen or the user is no longer allowed to use the device.

 

With stock Android, an IT admin can lock a device only if it is currently unlocked. If the device […] Read more

Device Software Update Management – Knox Control over User Updates

Device Software Update Management – Knox Control over User Updates

A wide range of EMM partners support Samsung’s firmware management features, integrating firmware management with other asset management activities. IT admins can use these tools to test and deploy software updates in a consistent and low-risk way. Through EMM solutions, enterprises can restrict users from loading unauthorized firmware, through their devices or USB- connected computers.

 

Through the Knox Platform, enterprises can:

 

Prevent firmware rollback:

This option prevents valid, but out-of-date firmware versions from being maliciously or accidentally installed onto an enterprise’s devices. On Samsung Knox devices, a Rollback Prevention fuse encodes the minimum acceptable version of Samsung-approved software. With specific updates, the next […] Read more

Device Software Update Management

Device Software Update Management

Strict control over device firmware updates

Samsung developed Enterprise Firmware Over-the-Air (E-FOTA) to enable enterprises to save time and support costs, and manage the mobile infrastructure as efficiently as possible.

 

With E-FOTA, enterprises can control device software updates as follows:

 

Select the highest firmware version allowed on devices:

This option ensures that device users can’t independently update to an unsupported firmware version, preventing issues that could negatively impact employee productivity, support costs, and data security.

Force the download of a specific firmware version onto select devices:

Enterprises can download new firmware to a few test devices to run interoperability or compatibility tests. This mandatory download is […] Read more

Device Software Update Management – Why Manage Device Software Updates?

Device Software Update Management – Why Manage Device Software Updates?

In enterprises with fragmented platforms and firmware versions, mobile device deployment and support becomes a time-consuming and tedious task. Proprietary enterprise apps and websites behave inconsistently on different firmware versions, so features require testing and troubleshooting on a widening array of device platforms.

 

Controlling the rollout of software updates allows IT admins to:

 

Homogenize the firmware versions and capabilities of deployed device models.
Carry out interoperability or compatibility testing with in-house or proprietary servers, apps, and endpoint settings.

Ensure that known issues are patched before deployment of major firmware version updates.

Perform field tests of new firmware and software on a subset of devices before […] Read more
