Mobile Security: IBM MaaS360 Courses:


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
