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 without having access to the users’ personal data and apps. ZENworks currently supports only the work profile mode of enrollment.

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.

By integrating ZENworks with Android Enterprise, you can:

  • Have complete control over the corporate data on a device by creating a separate container called a work profile.

  • 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 using the Unenroll quick task; leaving the personal data on the device intact.

  • 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.
