By now, almost every business – big or small has started using mobile devices for work rather than sticking to desktops and cubicles. Managing mobile devices in small businesses is easier said than done. Due to the limited size, a dedicated IT team may not be available to monitor and manage every device. Hexnode MDM takes responsibility for the complete device management in the company.
The business need not stick to a single device type like Apple, Android or Windows. Hexnode MDM manages all device types equally and from a single console. Configurations can be set up for different platforms separately and deployed as a single policy.
Network configurations for the company such as email, Wi-Fi, VPN, access points can be set up and applied to the devices over-the-air. Websites and apps can be whitelisted or blacklisted to improve working conditions. Kiosk mode for app lockdown makes devices work specific.
Personal and corporate data can be separated using the containerization techniques. Android Enterprise Recommended program enables containerization in Android devices and Managed Open In feature for the secure access of business data in iOS devices.
Active Directory support enables Hexnode MDM to import all the employee details to the portal. This eliminates the need to add the employee details into the portal manually. Hexnode also supports Azure AD integration.
Android, Apple and Windows devices can be locked down to a single app using the Kiosk mode in Hexnode MDM. Android and iOS devices support multi-app kiosk mode which enables locking down to a few numbers of apps and websites.
Hexnode allows you to create app catalogs and app groups so that apps can be deployed along with a policy. Android Enterprise Recommended enables companies to set up an exclusive play store with just the company approved apps for the employees to download and install.
Actions such as lock, wipe, enable lost mode, scan device location are some of the features that help secure device data. These actions may not help you retrieve a lost device, but the data can be saved from falling into the wrong hands.
