Storage encryption device policy

You create storage encryption device policies in XenMobile to encrypt internal and external storage, and, depending on the device, to prevent users from using a storage card on their devices.

You can create policies for Samsung SAFE, Windows Phone, and Android Sony devices. Each platform requires a different set of values, which are described in detail in this article.

To add or configure this policy, go to Configure > Device Policies. For more information, see Device policies.

Prerequisites

For Samsung SAFE devices, make sure the following requirements are met before you configure this policy:

  • Set the Screen Lock option on user devices.
  • Plug in users devices and charge them to at least 80%.
  • Make sure that the devices require a password containing both numbers and letters or symbols.
