With mobile devices slowly permeating into organizations, managing them comes up with its own set of challenges especially with respect to the data collected. Data collected, even for management purposes can be used for identification causing privacy concerns and futher exemplified, in case of personal devices(BYOD). MDM however, lets you customize the existing privacy settings to suit the needs of the organization. You can choose to configure the settings for all the managed devices or only for corporate/personal devices, ensuring privacy is maintained.
Configuring Privacy Settings
- On the MDM server, click on Admin tab from the top menu and select Privacy Settings.
- Configure the policy based on the table given below:
|Device Data||Configure the device data which MDM is permitted to collect and display. By default, IMEI and Serial Number are collected and displayed. However, you can choose whether the following data can be collected or not:
|Remote Command Execution||Specify whether the remote commands can be executed on devices or not. In case of data wipe, you can choose to either enable/disable it but in case of Remote Control, you can also leave it to the user|
|Applicable Devices||Specify whether the policy is to be applied to corporate and/or personal devices.|
- In case of Lost Mode, the device location is tracked and security commands such as data wipe etc., get executed irrespective of the settings configured, as the user explicitly grants consent for executing Lost Mode.
