Geo-Fencing refers to drawing a virtual barrier around a location using a device’s Global Positioning System (GPS) or Internet Protocol (IP) address. Technically, geo-fencing can be any size radius from a particular location, anywhere from 25m to 5000m in stretch. You can define an address on the map and set the radius around that address. If the device is in that region, the policy which is set by the administrator will be active on the device.
