Follow the links and guides below to learn more about how you can use Scalefusion to manage your corporate-owned and/or personally-owned devices.

Getting Started with Android in Enterprise

The first step to start managing your devices, either corporate-owned or personal devices, is to enroll your organization and set up Android for Work in Scalefusion. This will ensure that you can leverage the latest enterprise features offered by Android using Scalefusion, like distributing applications from the Google Play Store and pushing App configurations like Email or VPN configurations. 

If you are using Android devices with OS version less than 6.0, then you can use the legacy method of enrolling your devices and still control the corporate-owned devices, and you can jump to the Manage Corporate Owned Devices section below. However, managing employee-owned devices requires a minimum of Android 6.0.

Manage Corporate Owned Devices

Corporate-owned devices are the ones that are owned by an organization but given to employees or set up for unattended access. Their primary use case is to get complete control of the applications that an employee has access to or to make sure that there is only one application running. Combined with the application control, you might want to control a bunch of other settings so as to increase productivity.

Manage Employee/Personal Owned Devices (BYOD)

The smartphone market share has been increasing quarter on quarter, and consumers nowadays have a wide variety of choices. This means that your employees would most probably use a high-end smartphone of their own, and hence they might not be receptive to the idea of carrying a second phone for work. In these scenarios, it becomes imperative to let them use their personal phones to access work data, and not only making sure that the corporate data is safe and secure but also ensuring that the overall experience is completely non-intrusive to the personal side of things.
