I've rooted my Samsung Galaxy SIII Neo Android device by following this XDA Developers link. I would like to know what Samsung KNOX is, and what the advantages of enabling it / disabling it are (as this is not discussed on the XDA page I just mentioned).

Also, if I disable Samsung Knox, then how can I reenable it at a later time?

The screenshots below show how I've used Odin on my PC to root my phone and what the Root Checker and SuperSU applications in use look like.

Directly from Wikipedia :

Samsung Knox provides security features that enable business and personal content to coexist on the same handset. The user presses an icon that switches from Personal to Work use with no delay or reboot wait time.1 The manufacturer has claimed this feature will be fully compatible with Android and Google and will provide full separation of work and personal data on mobile devices and "addresses all major security gaps in Android.

(Download Android Terminal Emulator) then for Disable :

pm disable com.sec.knox.seandroid

and after disable, maybe you need this again ;

Enable :

pm enable com.sec.knox.seandroid

And i suggest you, in the SuperSu never touch For Disabling the Knox. it maybe harassment you and need for the second root process.(this is happend for me, but maybe you need to try it). Also , read these articles :
