Set up Android enterprise - Overview

To set up Android enterprise for your organization, you can choose between two different scenarios:

Managed Google Play Account scenario

This is the easiest method to set up Android enterprise for your organization.

  • Sophos Mobile guides you through the process of setting up an Android enterprise account for your organization.
  • If required, you can create multiple Android enterprise accounts for your organization.
  • Sophos Mobile manages the whole user account lifecycle.

See Set up Android enterprise (Managed Google Play Account scenario).

Managed Google Domain scenario

Use this method if you already have a Managed Google Domain or if you want to manage the accounts of your Android enterprise users outside of Sophos Mobile.

  • You register a Managed Google Domain with Google and prove domain ownership.
  • You bind Sophos Mobile as a third-party EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) to your Managed Google Domain.
  • Sophos Mobile creates user accounts as needed. Other than that, Sophos Mobile does not manage the account lifecycle.
