IBM MaaS360 Foundations Courses:

MaaS360: Configuring Android Enterprise Profile Owner Mode for BYOD

Android Enterprise, a Google-led initiative, enables the use of Android devices and apps in the workplace. IBM Security MaaS360 integrates with Android Enterprise to provide a unified endpoint management experience. Currently, MaaS360 supports three management varieties provided with Android Enterprise; Profile Owner (PO), Device Owner (DO), and Corporate Owned Single Use (COSU).

PO assigns a work profile in which work apps and data are stored in a separate, self-contained space within a device. This scenario supports personally owned devices (BYOD).

In this lab, you configure MaaS360 with Android Enterprise. You learn how to enable Android Enterprise using a managed Google Play account and deploy a Work Profile (PO) to manage BYOD for personally enabled and personally owned devices. This process includes the following tasks: 

  • Configure Android Enterprise to manage personal devices
  • Initiate a trial with MaaS360
  • Adjust the deployment settings to ensure proper enrollment is met
  • Learn about application distribution and settings associated with these distributions
  • Create a Work Profile that separates business applications from apps in a personal profile
  • Configure the WorkPlace Persona policy for Secure Mail
  • Review device enrollment options and send an enrollment request
  • Remove the Work Profile from the device

Configuring Federated SAML Authentication in MaaS360

Learn how to prepare Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) to be used as the Identity provider for the  federated SAML authentication of devices and portal administrators in MaaS360.  You configure both ADFS  and MaaS360  to use Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML)  and then test portal administrator and device enrollments using this authentication.  Microsoft ADFS is used as the Identity Provider in this lab but any Identity Provider that supports SAML 2.0 can be used to achieve federated single-sign on in MaaS360.
