The admin can provision internet-enabled devices without worrying about device and data security. The devices can be configured to block access to specific URLs defined by the admin, with Hexnode’s website blacklisting. All website, except the blacklisted websites, can be accessed by the user.
Selective blocking of website can be cumbersome and would require constant updates and checks for new vulnerabilities. Website whitelisting provides a more restrictive alternative to blacklisting. The admin can limit access to a handful of secure websites and access to all other websites will be blocked.
Apart from defining website access on devices, the admin can lockdown corporate Android and iOS devices into website kiosks. Website kiosks can be configured to access a handful of whitelisted websites or all websites except the blacklisted websites. Access to all other device functionalities can be restricted.
