Maybe it is easier... if you tell us what you want to achieve?
Maybe then somebody can help you...

In my opinion Knox is an Security concept...

Maybe this Encryption thingie is 1 part of Knox...

Z1 has Privacy and safety...
Private mode...

Not tested by me... no idea...

SM-Z130H is ""Knox"" enabled device...
SM-Z300H has maybe more Knox...  ;D

Other things secured by """Knox""" is Bootloader/Kernel related stuff etc...

Only idea...  :)

What I want to achieve is a separate environment for my enterprise services like mail, calender, contacts and so on. Just like it's possible on several Galaxy devices.

Security is an important part of Knox but it has more capabilities.

I am not up2date...  :-[

I will use Google... and check Knox features on S6... for instance...
Maybe then easier to compare with SM-Z300H...

Maybe then "we" can answer with yes or no...

Need some time for research...  :-[

Looks like many Knox possible...

This looks interesting...

Security software version — (KNOX 2.0 and later) Indicates which version of the Mobile Device Fundamentals Protection Profile (MDFPP) standard the device supports, which indicates Common Criteria certification.
Secure boot status — (KNOX 1.0) Indicates who signed the device firmware. Typically, this is Samsung, but in case of Customizable Secure Boot, this can be a trusted security partner that customizes and signs their own firmware.

Looks like Z3 not support "my Knox"...

Sorry, this is tooooooo complex for my little brain.

Tizen Conference Slides: Introduction to Samsung KNOX (PDF)

"Samsung KNOX is already a market leader in secure mobility on Android devices. We now introduce this on Tizen. The KNOX Tizen Standard SDK allows developers to build enterprise applications that run securely and optimally on Samsung Tizen mobile devices. Applications developed with the SDK will face reduced security threats and risks from lost or stolen devices that contain sensitive corporate data. Enterprise IT departments can also manage these SDK-developed applications and enforce their company policies and business processes.

This session will introduce Samsung KNOX, Samsung’s approach to the B2B market in China,  and then review the KNOX Tizen Standard SDK, with a focus on device management capabilities."

Next steps ...

The Samsung KNOX Tizen Standard SDK is coming soon. In the meantime, you can ...

    Download the basic Tizen SDK from the Tizen Developers website. This is the SDK that lets you control Tizen platform features like the file system and UI. The SDK includes the Native C/C++ SDK, an IDE based on Eclipse, a Tizen device emulator, sample code, and documentation.
    Review the FAQs and forum threads about developing for the Tizen platform.

If I understand correct, after short checked my Knox...

Z1 and/or Z3 have no "my Knox" app from Tizen Store...

So for now it is nearly useless for enduser...  ::)

@Olivier Nyssen:
Thanks for sharing the info.

@adfree:
You're correct, the Z3 supports Tizen 1.0 but that doesn't include My Knox. It can be that My Knox will be added later the Z3 but this is unlikely at the moment (according to sources from the Knox development team).

Only as info... and because I don't know, if Z3 BOL2 Firmware also updated Knox Version... visible...  :-[

SM-Z130H looks in 2.4 second Beta similar... will later add screenshot...

Premium Android devices have "few infos" more...
Only as example...
