Gotta love how Samsung has confused everything by calling it all "Knox".
OK, what you're asking about is the Knox Secure Container service.
You should be able to use that even if rooted as long as you haven't tripped the Knox Warranty Void flag by trying to flash a custom kernel.
I think you can still use it even if the phone has the Knox SEAndroid enforcement disabled (which is what gets turned off when you allow SuperSU to "disable Knox".) The container service is separate. However, there's a chance that the container service will fail if the enforcement service is disabled. You can turn that enforcement service back on, but it's going to be a pain to be rooted while that keeps killing off rooted processes.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock NC5 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.
VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
