What’s new in 14.5/14.6 for Mobile


New Features/Enhancements

  • Enable/Disable Samsung TIMA Key store usage. (The TIMA key store allows hardware backed storage of PKI keys)
  • Ability to apply VPN profiles to both the KNOX container and the device
  • Centrify mobile browser
    • We’ve now built a browser into the Centrify mobile app to better service webapps that are configured for SSO
  • Mobile client UI updates/enhancements
  • Bug-Fix to allow bulk enrollment with Cloud policy
  • Kiosk/Single-App mode for supervised iOS devices
  • Apple DEP support on iOS (enforces MDM enrollment before using device)
    • Customers can now leverage Apple’s DEP (Device Enrollment Program) to enforce MDM enrollment just after the device’s 1st boot
  • Improved application support on mobile devices (AOL, Jive)
  • Support for Juniper SSL VPN in KNOX
  • Tab support on Centrify mobile browser
  • Bug-Fixes for IMAP/POP3 settings on Samsung Devices


New Policies

  • Policy to allow/deny screen capture while in KNOX workspace mode
  • Policy to allow/deny booting into Recovery mode on Samsung devices
    • This prevents users from wiping a device to factory defaults by disabling device reset in the Recovery mode
  • Policy to allow/deny moving files between KNOX workspace and personal side of device

New in 14.4 is Kiosk mode for Samsung devices. 


Kiosk mode is useful for situations where the device needs to be locked down to a single app, or very few apps that the administrator specifies, and nothing else. This is a great solution for retail or education, where the devices are used by several people throughout the day, but theft and tampering are a concern.

With Centrify User Suite 14.4 you can configure a single application for kiosk mode, or (if more than one app is required) you can configure the Centrify agent as the launcher, and manage the applications from the User Suite console.

You can also configure the level of lockdown; such as allowing/denying status and notification bar, task manager, and multi-window access. More improvements to kiosk mode are coming in future releases.



This latest release of Centrify User Suite now provides Policy Services without the need for Active Directory. This means that you can now define both Users and Policies within the cloud service to enable both device configuration policy management as well as application single sign-on for your users.
