The story

David Powers, District Police/ Patrol officer at Austin Community College runs a private security agency to offer a safe, secure, and healthy learning/ working environment for the staff and students of the college. Austin Community College is a nationally recognized higher education system that operates in Austin, Texas metropolitan area and surrounding central Texas communities to provide higher education at a reasonable cost.

David has deployed some Android mobile phones within his company for various timekeeping tasks such as monitoring and managing incident reports that indicate various types of college-related incidents. The need for controlling multiple Android devices in the company at a rapid pace made him look forward to the implementation of a mobile device management solution.

“Hexnode MDM works well...I love it”

Hexnode MDM helped David to containerize Android devices into personal and work profiles. The Android Enterprise program separate sensitive business information from personal data. Using the Android Enterprise Device Owner mode, David could stay focussed on the containerized apps rather than managing the entire device that can end up in wasting time. Moreover, Hexnode enabled him to lock down the devices enrolled in Android Enterprise Device Owner mode to specific apps. With Hexnode, he seamlessly distributed applications to the Android devices while restricting the safe mode access on the devices. He also blocked the installation of malicious applications on the devices.

“...The implementation of Hexnode MDM helped us a lot”

In a nutshell

Apart from the availability of an extensive feature-set, the reasonable pricing and scalability led David to choose Hexnode from various “other” MDMs. The help documentation and other resources enhanced the usability and maintenance of the software. The simplicity of use and transparency of UI made Hexnode the best MDM to build top-notch security services with simplified workflows.
