This policy is ideally used to secure and validate network communications from the device to any internal/external website. By pushing certificates to device, you can secure access to networks/servers, secure e-mail communication etc., For example, you can deploy CA certificates to the managed devices, if your organization uses S/MIME to connect to a network/server. The certificates pushed to the device ensures the devices trusts the enterprise CA. This is applicable only for Non-Samsung devices(5.0 or later), devices must be enrolled as Device Owner or Profile Owner and for Samsung devices(above 4.2).
The managed device must have a passcode set, for Certificate to be installed in the device.
