With the new WebSafetica 9.6, we are introducing our Enterprise Mobility Management solution based on Android work profiles. In previous versions, our main aim was to protect mobile devices as a whole and focus on finding or wiping them in case of theft or loss. With our new EMM solution, users will be able to separate work-related apps, accounts and data into work profiles that are protected by Safetica.
Note: The previous mode is still available in case you do not want to use the new EMM solution.
If you would like to use our EMM solution, there are several prerequisites that need to be met:
Note: If the mobile device is not encrypted, the user will be asked for encryption during work profile enrollment. If the user confirms, encryption will be performed immediately. After reboot, Android will notify the user that they should finish the work profile enrollment process.
To use the EMM solution, two steps need to be performed. The administrator first has to activate EMM in WebSafetica. Users then have to enroll their work profiles in Safetica Mobile.

Note: The older app will be disabled in Google Play. The new app will appear in the new work-related Google Play.
Note: When using an app, you can tell it belongs to the work profile by the briefcase icon in the upper part of the screen.
