Performing remote operations on managed mobile devices

The IT administrators can remotely perform services on the registered iOS mobile devices. Using commands, the following operations can be executed on mobile devices:

  • Update information about the device, security, restrictions, applications, certificates, and profiles (collect inventory)
  • Install or remove configuration profiles (manage profiles)
  • Install or remove managed applications (manage applications)
  • Lock or wipe (factory reset) mobile device (data security)
  • Clear passcode (data security)

The Repeat Frequency option in the commands allows:

  • Collecting inventories at regular intervals. For example, you might want to run a command to collect security inventory every seven days, installed applications inventory every 15 days, and device information inventory every 30 days.
  • Ensure that users have important applications installed all the time. For example, you can create a command to install Outlook and set the Repeat Frequency option to one day. So, even if the user removes Outlook application from the mobile device, the command installs it again the next day.

Commands can be used to ensure that the enterprise data stored on the mobile device is accessed only by the authorized user. If the mobile device is stolen or misplaced, the Wipe or Lock command ensures that important data is not accessible to unauthorized users. If the user forgets the passcode, IT Admin can remotely clear the passcode, allowing rapid access again to the user.
