Enable Baidu Cloud Push service

Sophos Mobile Control uses the Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) service to send push notifications to Android devices, to trigger them to contact the Sophos Mobile Control server. In China, GCM will likely not work. Therefore, Sophos Mobile Control can also use Baidu Cloud Push, which is a Chinese push notification service.

If you manage Android devices that are located in China, enable the Baidu Cloud Push service as follows:

  1. On the menu sidebar, under SETTINGS, click Setup > General, and then click the Android tab.
  2. In the Baidu Cloud Push service section, select Enable Baidu Cloud Push service.
  3. Click Save.
When Baidu Cloud Push is enabled, Sophos Mobile Control sends all push notifications through GCM and through Baidu Cloud Push.
