A detailed look at deeper integrations
 
1) Faster, slicker Android Deployments
 
At Wandera we believe in a simple truth: no matter how brilliant a new product is, if it’s difficult to get up and running, you won’t use it. That’s why we’ve worked tirelessly since our conception to bring you the fastest and most seamless deployment processes possible.
 
By leveraging Wandera’s Auto Discovery activation method, together with EMM Connect, enrolling Android devices is made easier than ever for MaaS360 users. Users are able to simply add any Android devices to a Wandera provisioning group in MaaS360, and deploy the Wandera app to those same devices.
 
On the next sync, EMM Connect will automatically create the device within RADAR, and the Wandera app is ready for the AutoDiscovery enrollment process.
 
2) Improved mobile data controls
 
EMM Connect enables Wandera to block all roaming data and disable tethering on iOS devices based upon usage policies set in RADAR, allowing organizations to create more customizable policy across their fleet.
 
This unique capability helps prevent bill shock in a manner that is more flexible than disabling these capabilities at all times.
 
3) Deeper app-based risk assessments
 
The integration between Wandera and MaaS360 enables MI:RIAM, Wandera’s mobile intelligence engine, to see a full list of applications installed across both iOS and Android devices. This allows administrators to assess the risk that installed applications present to the organization in a more powerful way.
 
4) Stronger device lifecycle management
 
Wandera’s device lifecycle management capabilities allow administrators to perform routine tasks all from one place: the MaaS360 console.
 
Device additions, modifications, and deletions need to only be performed within MaaS360, with the changes synced automatically to Wandera through the EMM Connect integration.
