From Android 10 it can be used to configure the Knox Service Plugin application through the Proget console, making it possible to increase the control of fully managed business devices (Android Enterprise - Device Owner) and devices on which the business space is separated from the private space (Android Enterprise - Profile Owner).
The Knox Enterprise Firmware-Over-The-Air license allows the management of operating system updates on Samsung devices. By using E-FOTA in conjunction with Proget, the continuity of applications necessary to maintain business processes can be ensured, especially those based on advanced and dedicated custom applications. Any instability of such an application resulting from an operating system update can be a big problem for hundreds or thousands of devices. E-FOTA allows the testing of every patch and update on a test group of devices to make sure that every application works.
