    How does MaaS360 manage my Amazon Kindle Fire?

    4 January 2012 (Last edited: 14 June 2012)

    MaaS360 can help enterprises manage their end user or corporate owned Amazon Kindle Fire tablets in the same way they use MaaS360 to manage their iPhones, iPads and other Android-based devices. The Kindle Fire does present its own unique challenges, as Amazon has tried to make this device all its own, and we’ll outline which features are impacted, as well as providing best practices for making sure Kindle Fire devices are securely managed in your environment.

    DEVICE MANAGEMENT FEATURE OVERVIEW: ANDROID VS KINDLE FIRE

     

    *Android device configurations not supported by Kindle Fire:

    -Background Data Sync

    -Data Roaming

    -Mobile AP

    -Tethering

    -Location Services: Use Wireless networks

    -Location Services: Use GPS networks

    -Allow Mock Locations

    -Backup my Data

     

    **MaaS360 Native App Compliance Support (can be blocked on device):

    -Browser

    -Email

    -Gallery

    -Amazon Market (Available Q1)

     

    ***Kindle specifications. Note: It does lack a few features that would have been nice, such as using micro-SD and GPS. The GPS may not be necessity in the device due to many people having smart-phones with GPS. Using an app such as TetherGPS could allow the Kindle Fire to use the Android Phones GPS via an ADB (Android Debug Bridge) protocol.
