What is Google Play Protect, how does it protect your mobile and how to configure it





Part of its advantages are that it is not necessary to configure anything or have a dedicated team to manage the devices, but they come factory preset with policies persistently active - that is, employees cannot deactivate them.

These policies are simpler than in other MDM management systems, although the most important ones are included: require mobile protection, device encryption, require the use of virus protection such as Google Play Protect and the ability to remotely wipe a device in case it is lost or stolen.



All this, with a "low" budget, although at the moment we don't have the figure. Companies that are interested in this service can sign up for a webinar to learn more about it and a product demonstration on January 26. The global launch expected "early 2021".
