How to Configure Compliance Settings?

The compliance status of a device indicates whether it meets the list of requirements enforced by the organization. With Hexnode, you can define a host of rules and settings to ensure an optimal level of security and conformity with your corporate regulations.

Hexnode MDM flags a device as non-compliant if it fails any of the selected compliance checks. The Device compliance pane and Non-compliant widgets on the dashboard keeps you updated with key metrics. The Compliant devices report lets you precisely document compliance for audits. You can also use Dynamic grouping to automatically round-up the non-compliant devices in a separate group to take quick remedial actions.

Configure Compliance Settings

  1. Log in to your Hexnode MDM Portal.
  2. Go to Admin > General Settings > Compliance Settings.
  3. You will have the following options to be checked.
