Android to Android Enterprise Upgrade

Starting on October 2, 2017 and ending by October 20, 2017.   The Mass General Brigham EMM team will be communicating to users with compatible Android devices that are enrolled in MobileIron to upgrade them from from Android to Android Enterprise.  This document only applies if you have received communication from the Mass General Brigham EMM team.  If you have not received an email, please disregard this document

Android Enterprise is a special configuration available to Nougat (7.0) and higher Android devices. Android Enterprise separates your personal life from your work life by creating a “Work Profile” on your device and installing Mass General Brigham enterprise apps in this profile. Only data in the “Work Profile” will be managed by your organization. Your personal data is kept separate and private.

Android Enterprise allows Mass General Brigham to leverage technologies that enable special “Work Badged” version of Google Play apps including the following:

  • Gmail: Mass General Brigham email through the familiar Gmail app
  • Google Calendar: Mass General Brigham calendaring through the Google Calendar app
  • MobileIron Tunnel: An always on VPN Tunnel to allow you to connect to SharePoint and other internal resources
  • Dropbox: A specialized version of Dropbox to provide access your Dropbox Business account
