12.0 Integrating ZENworks with Android Enterprise

Android in the enterprise is a program for mobile devices running on the Google Android operating system that enables IT admins to manage and secure mobile business applications on users’ devices. ZENworks currently supports the work profile mode and the work-managed device mode.

  • The work profile mode, also known as the Profile Owner mode, creates dedicated containers on devices for corporate apps and data, thereby enabling the organization to manage only the corporate data without compromising on the security of the users’ personal data. This mode is intended for the BYOD scenario, where the user gets to bring their own devices to the workplace.

  • The work-managed device mode, also known as the Device Owner mode, enables administrators to manage the entire device, thereby restricting the device to corporate use only. This mode is mainly intended for corporate-owned devices.

By integrating ZENworks with Android Enterprise, you can:

  • Have complete control over the corporate data on a device.

  • Apply separate passwords to the work profile and the personal space using the Mobile Security Policy.

  • Control data leakage and prevent app installations from unknown sources using the Mobile Device Control Policy.

  • Remotely wipe corporate data or factory reset the device (based on the mode of enrollment) using the Unenroll quick task.

  • Distribute and manage corporate apps through managed Google Play by using the existing Bundles feature.

  • Restrict access to corporate data if the device is found to be non-compliant by using the Mobile Compliance Policy

  • Edit the app runtime permissions and remotely configure apps on devices.
