If you’ve ever gotten a new smartphone, tablet, or other digital device, you know that the first thing you have to do when you take it out of the box, is completely set up the device. If you want to have a large fleet of devices for your employees, storefronts, or other locations, you will need someone to set up each of these devices, which could be highly time-consuming depending on your device quantity. Zero-touch enrollment for Android devices is the solution to this problem.
What is Zero-Touch Enrollment?
Zero-touch enrollment is a capability offered through mobile device management (MDM) and enterprise mobility management (EMM) systems on Android devices. With zero-touch enrollment, you can preset configurations and settings for your devices to ensure a seamless device setup and deployment without needing an IT person physically present.
Enhances Device Security
Zero-touch enrollment also boosts your device’s security. If a phone or tablet from your fleet is stolen or lost and wiped, it will still be part of your zero-touch enrollment system. Once the device is restarted, the preset apps and settings will still be on the phone, but the user will not be able to opt-out of the EMM system.
Saves Money and Time
Employing zero-touch enrollment saves your business money and time by minimizing the number of IT professionals required to successfully maintain your fleet of digital devices. Your IT team will be able to focus on critical and pressing tasks rather than manually setting up each new device or visiting the physical location of a recently installed digital display to make updates.
How to Use Zero-Touch Enrollment
To begin using zero-touch enrollment for your Android devices, you will need to ensure that you are buying your devices from an authorized zero-touch reseller or carrier.
Next, access your zero-touch system and designate which devices are for which users. Make sure to also enroll your devices that are currently in use into the zero-touch platform. This way, if wiped, they will automatically be set up again.
Once all your devices are enrolled, choose the EMM settings and restrictions that you would like to deploy to your devices. The configurations will be applied when someone turns on the new device for the first time.
