Adding Android Plus Devices

Use the Android Plus platform to enroll and manage devices running Android 4.0 or later.

Once you have created an add devices rule, you must install a device agent on your devices to enroll them in SOTI MobiControl.

You can enroll and organize your devices using LDAP or IdP (backed by LDAP) connections. After you have configured your LDAP connection or your IdP connection in SOTI MobiControl, you can set up add devices rules to enroll devices in specific device groups based on their LDAP or IdP groups. You can also use the LDAP or IdP groups for device authentication.

Android Enterprise Features

Android allows you to standardize management of Android devices used for corporate purposes. Enabling work features on your enrolled Android devices allows SOTI MobiControl to leverage the Android operating system and the managed Google Play store for more device management scenarios.

These management features are only available on devices running Android 4.0 or later. See Adding Android Devices with Work Features Enabled for more information.

Samsung Knox

Samsung Knox is a collection of security enhancements available on some Samsung devices. SOTI MobiControl supports Samsung Knox Mobile Enrollment, a bulk enrollment service, and Samsung Knox Workspace, a secure container that separates personal data from enterprise data.

See either Using Samsung Knox Mobile Enrollment or Samsung Knox Workspace for more information.

Note: In the SOTI MobiControl console, Samsung KNOX generally refers to devices with the Samsung Knox Workspace container enabled.
