Devices 

A device is a physical computing unit capable of achieving one or multiple tasks. Entgra IoT Server enables organizations to enroll, secure, manage, and monitor devices, irrespective of the mobile operator, service provider, or the organization.

Device Ownership 

In some corporate environments, mobile devices are used to carry out organizational tasks such as email access. These devices are categorized into two main groups based on the ownership:

  • Bring Your Own Device (BYOD): These devices are owned by the employee and managed by the employer. They are subject to policies and conventions enforced by the employer.
  • Corporate Owned, Personally Enabled (COPE): These devices are owned and managed by the employer. 

Device Types 

Devices are subdivided into two main groups based on the usage: 

  • Mobile devices: These are handheld devices that are usually used for day-to-day ordinary activities such as making phone calls, sending emails, and setting up alarms. Entgra IoT Server supports managing Android, iOS and Windows mobile devices.
