Getting started with bring-your-own-device (BYOD) deployments

Sophos Mobile and bring-your-own-device (BYOD)

Android and iOS cater to bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environments through the Android Work Profile and Apple User Enrolment. Both of these management modes are supported in Sophos Mobile.

New devices can be set up directly into BYOD management modes. Existing devices can be moved at time of hardware refresh or by the admin via the Sophos Mobile admin console or user via the Self Service Portal.

The below resources provide more details and guidance on BYOD deployments.
