Android Enterprise (AE) Setup

Satish Shetty Updated by Satish Shetty

Using our Android Enterprise (AE) MDM interface, formerly known as Android-for-work (AfW), The IT Administrator can manage all brands of Android devices using a single interface. The real advantage of using AE over our Samsung MDM or LG MDM is that, using AE, The IT administrator can centrally push apps from google playstore and maintain an enterprise appstore. Our AE implementation is also supports silent APK deployment if needed but it is mostly not necessary as long as app is available in google playstore. App updates will happen automatically and no need of setup any gmail account in the device. AE also supports container management for BYOD scenarios. AE makes enrollment easier by downloading MDM app silently as part of the device setup.
