Differences between COD and BYOD group

Enterprises empower their employees by allowing the use of mobile devices under Company Owned Devices (COD) policy or by implementing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy for work operations. This enhances employee productivity and allows seamless business operations. It allows organizations to have a comprehensive approach in safeguarding critical applications and enterprise data accessed or residing in mobile devices. It ensures that corporate data is secured from data loss, malware or unauthorized access.

After the MDM application is successfully installed on a device, the administrator can see the device details in the management console. Policy deployment on the managed devices will be carried out under the MDM Category.

Container deployment will provide you with a medium to allow users to use their device for office work within the defined perimeter under BYOD through geo-fencing policy deployment.

In case the device is provided by the enterprise, you can enroll the device as COD (Company Owned Device) where the security policies for the container will be applicable irrespective of the device location.

Note

By default, whenever an administrator adds mobile device(s), it will be added in the MDM group.

The Container application can be accessed only after the eScan MDM application is installed and enrolled on the managed device.
