    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Hexnode MDM enables you to encrypt a device while enrolling it in Android Enterprise.
    Please navigate to Enroll-> Platform-specific-> Android-> Android Enterprise and uncheck the ‘Skip device encryption’. The device will now get encrypted while enrolling in Android Enterprise.

    Cheers!

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Hexnode enables you to encrypt mac devices using FileVault. It is a full disk encryption program that will encrypt all the data on your device. After the device has been encrypted, it can be accessed only on entering a valid recovery key. The data that are then added to the device will be automatically encrypted, as they get saved to the device. Encryption prevents the data being compromised even if the devices goes missing or lost.
    There are several ways for encrypting a Mac device, such as by using an Institutional Recovery Key, Personal Recovery Key or Institutional and Personal Recover Key.

    Check out FileVault with Hexnode MDM for more info.

    Cheers!

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Yes, you will be able to encrypt windows devices. BitLocker is a full volume encryption tool supported by Hexnode, using which you can force encryption on Hard drives of Windows 10 devices.

    To configure BitLocker encryption:

    1. Navigate to Windows-> Security-> BitLocker and click Configure.
    2. Configure the BitLocker settings.
    3. Associate targets and save the policy.

    Please check out our help doc on BitLocker for more info.

    Cheers!
