How to Configure Compliance Settings in Hexnode MDM

Compliance status of a device indicates whether it meets the list of requirements selected in Compliance Settings globally. You can choose from a host of requisites 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.

  1. Login to your Hexnode MDM Portal.
  2. Go to Admin > General Settings > Compliance Settings.
