  • Policy to allow/restrict users from being able to add applications to the User Portal.

  • Ability to export / import an application from Cloud Manager (this enables an admin to export the application configurations from one environment to import into another). 
  • Ability to clone an app to facilitate deploying similar apps requiring minor modifications to the app configuration. 
  • Support for Read-Only Domain Controller (improves performance for environments where connection to Read-Write Domain Controller is slow). 
  • Ability to enable/disable ODE trusted boot verification on Samsung KNOX Devices. This requires the device to pass kernel integrity verification in order to decrypt On Device Encrypted data such as the KNOX container.

  • Enable UMC support - This enables Samsung KNOX 2.0 devices to enroll without needing to download the MDM client manually. Users can just initiate the MDM enrollment from the Universal MDM Client already on the device. This is initiated by launching a URL on the device which can be launched via a QR code or a text of the URL to the device. 
  • Support for defining VPN policies across personas for KNOX devices (both for the device and for the KNOX container). 
  • Bulk MDM enrollment support for Centrify Policy Service (instead of AD).
