1.1.15 - AirWatch - Enable 'Encrypt phone'


Mobile devices not only contain information, they also contain passwords and other credentials that can enable an attacker to retrieve confidential data from other sources the device may interact with. Note that the encryption process requires an hour or more, a fully-charged battery, and that the phone remains plugged in until the process is complete. If the encryption process is interrupted, some or all data may be lost.


From the AirWatch console, open the Android device profile. Under Passcode verify that Require Storage Encryption is checked.
