Android-based rugged devices by Zebra Technologies are widely used across the globe. They are purpose-built to streamline on-field operations. Zebra’s partnership with 42Gears allows enterprises to control, secure and manage these Zebra Android rugged devices using its signature MDM solution – SureMDM.

With SureMDM, enterprises can remotely configure Zebra devices for the following features:

  •         Remote Reboot
  •         Factory Reset
  •         Clock Manager
  •         Bluetooth and NFC Manager
  •         Display Manager: Timeout 
  •         Device Settings and Notifications Control
  •         UI Manager (Enable/Disable/Clear Clipboard, Enable/Disable Home Key)
  •         Camera and USB Manager
  •         Wi-Fi Manager
  •         OS Upgrade
  •         Silent Application Uninstallation
  •         Silent Application Upgrade
  •         Blacklist System Applications
  •         Whitelist Third-party Applications
  •         Install and Uninstall Certificates
  •         Manage Unknown Sources

42Gears has created distinct scripts to manage the above-mentioned features on Zebra devices. Admin can simply apply these scripts as jobs on their devices using SureMDM.
