Android Device Management has now been released to help administrators manage Android mobile devices and is being rolled out in the next few days.
This allows Google Apps admins to set device policy through the Control Panel for Android devices running version 2.2. Policies enforceable on Android devices include:
- Control if policy needs to be enforced before device can sync Gmail, Calendar, and Contacts
- Require device to have a PIN
- Define password complexity
- Remote Wipe
- Number of attempts before device is wiped
- Idle lock timeout
These policies can be enforced on devices that have installed the Google Apps Device Policy application, which will be available from Android Market in the next few days.
