Scenario: Mobile Device Management deployment

This section provides a scenario for configuring the Mobile Device Management feature in Kaspersky Security Center.

Prerequisites

Make sure that you have a license that grants access to the Mobile Device Management feature.

Deployment of the Mobile Device Management feature proceeds in stages:

  1. Preparing the ports

    Make sure that port 13292 is available on the Administration Server. This port is required for connecting mobile devices. Also, you may want to make port 17100 available. This port is only required for the activation proxy server for managed mobile devices; if managed mobile devices have Internet access, you do not have to make this port available.

  2. Enabling Mobile Device Management

    You can enable Mobile Device Management when you are running the Administration Server Quick Start Wizard or later.

  3. Specifying the external address of the Administration Server

    You can specify the external address when you run the Administration Server Quick Start Wizard or later. If you did not select Mobile Device Management for installation and did not specify the address in the installation wizard, specify the external address in the installation package properties.

  4. Adding mobile devices to the Managed devices group

    Add the mobile devices to the Managed devices group so that you can manage these devices through policies. You can create a moving rule in one of the steps of the Administration Server Quick Start Wizard. You can also create the moving rule later. If you do not create such a rule, you can add mobile devices to the Managed devices group manually.

    You can add mobile devices to the Managed devices group directly, or you can create a subgroup (or multiple subgroups) for them.

    At any time afterward, you can connect any new mobile device to the Administration Server using the New Mobile Device Connection Wizard.

  5. Creating a policy for mobile devices

    To manage mobile devices, create a policy (or multiple polices) for them in the corresponding group(s). You can change the settings of this policy at any time afterward.

Results

Upon completion of the scenario, you can manage Android and iOS devices using Kaspersky Security Center.
