Manage mobile devices

After enrolling your Android mobile devices, you can start managing them.

Out of the standard endpoint management available for all endpoint devices, mobile device management offers several features available only for mobile device management.

Manage mobile devices via client tasks

Anti-Theft actions (applies to Android and iOS devices)—These tasks are available for managed mobile devices only, such as Find, Lock and Factory reset. The tasks enable the administrator to locate the mobile device remotely, Lock it and, if the situation requires, wipe the mobile device.

See all the client tasks for mobile devices.


Mobile device client task triggers

You can use only these triggers for mobile device client tasks:

As Soon As Possible

Joined Dynamic Group Trigger

Client tasks with triggers other than those above will fail with the Trigger type not supported message.

Manage Android devices via policies

Assign the ESET Endpoint Security for Android policy, where you can customize each of the available Android management settings. For example:

Web Control

OS updates management

Remote application installation—You can remotely force the mobile device to install required applications by adding them to the list in the policy:

1.Navigate to your existing applied ESET Endpoint Security for Android policy (or create a new one for this purpose).

2.Under Application control, enable the Enable Application control toggle.

3.Click List of applications and add the applications you want to install on the mobile device remotely after applying the policy.
