It is recommended to enroll Samsung devices using Knox mobile enrollment for Samsung devices. Knox Mobile Enrollment is a method provided by Samsung, for simplifying the enrollment and deployment of Android devices.
In case of Non-Samsung devices, you can enroll devices based on the type of management you want. You can choose between Container Management and Complete Device Management
Ideal for personal devices, whereby a logical container is created for demarcating the corporate and the personal data. The container gets automatically created when the device is provisioned as Profile Owner, when enrolled via Enrollment via invite or Self Enrollment.
Ideal for corporate devices, with the organizations getting to exercise full control over the device in addition to all the aforementioned benefits of containerization. This done when the device is enrolled as Device Owner.
