Getting Started with Hexnode MDM Cloud Solution

Hexnode MDM is a cloud-based Unified Endpoint Management solution that drives the business productivity and compliance of the organizations. Hexnode offers a unified digital workspace for enterprise-wide mobility management coupled with robust content, and app management features. An MDM facilitates centralized control over the management and security configurations of all devices used inside an organization.

To manage and monitor a device using Hexnode, they must first be enrolled in the MDM solution. Hexnode supports the enrollment of both personal and corporate devices. Containerization in Hexnode ensures personal data security by establishing separate, encrypted containers on devices, separating work apps and data from personal app and data.

Check out Hexnode’s cloud deployment model by signing up for the 30-day free trial. The user should abide by the terms of the Hexnode MDM SaaS Agreement either on their own behalf or, if applicable, on behalf of a legal entity. Once successfully signed up for the portal, login will be created for the organization. Before enrolling the device in Hexnode, you should set up the email, SMS server, directory integration, APNs, and Android Enterprise, if required.
