Profiles

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Profiles option allows you to create and apply policies and configurations on the mobile devices enrolled with your Seqrite mSuite account. This option provides a platform to create new policies, configurations, and perform various actions.

Policies

The policies option allows you to assign policies to the group and manage the devices in that group. You can apply policies to single or multiple groups to secure the devices from losing the crucial information. You can assign or unassign the policies, edit, and remove the policies.

Note:
– KNOX-supported policies are applicable to all the KNOX-supported devices.
– Some Samsung devices may not indicate that they are KNOX-supported, but may show a prompt to accept the KNOX/Samsung agreement. If the user accepts the KNOX/Samsung agreement, then the KNOX policies are applied to the device.
