Sophos Mobile Control Policy Violation Detection

Hello community

Web Filtering is dependent on the Sophos Accessibility Service. I have not found a way to restrict a User from disabling the Accessibility Service. Is there some way to do this? 

Therefore the next best possibility I found was to apply Compliance Policies and lock the Container if a User has deactivated the Accessibility Service.

What I was not able to solve or understand is why does the Sophos Mobile Control App does not detect the Policy Violation immediately? At the Moment the lowest interval setting I could find was 6 hours. 

Is there any possibility to have a faster detection of policy violations?

I have read through the documentation and through the Community Forums but was not able to find anything regarding this.

It would be nice if someone could answer me this question.

Thanks for the help.

  • Hello Kushal

    Thank you for your reply. You are correct, im referring to the setting "SMC permissions can be denied" 

    Is there an approximate value for the checks on the local device?

    I have checked that Battery Optimization is disabled for the SMC App so that should not be the problem. 

    With the tests i have done till now it seem that it takes several hours until a Violation is detected.
