Overview:

The Add option on the upper-right side of the Fence Configuration page helps you to add a new fence configuration. This helps you to add the fence configuration according to the requirement.

When creating fence configuration, you need to understand:

Fence Group

Fence group includes the list of fences, actions, policies, and restrictions that have to be applied on the device when the device meets the defined fence condition. 

You can select the actions and restrictions to be applied on the device.

Define Fence

The define fence option helps to create new fence for Geo, time, and Wi-Fi.

Adding and defining fence configuration

1. Log on to the Seqrite mSuite console and in the left pane, click Fence > Configurations > Add.

The Add Fence Configuration page is displayed.


2. Enter the name of the configuration and description.

3. Select the following required check boxes:

Compel user to keep GPS ON: Select this check box to force the user to enable GPS on the device. It ensures that the Geo fence triggers as per the defined fence conditions.

Compel user to keep Wi-Fi ON: Select this check box to force the user to enable Wi-Fi on the device. It ensures that the Wi-Fi fence triggers as per the defined fence conditions.

4. Select either options:

Add Fence Group: Select this option to apply restrictions on the already defined fences.


Define Fence: Select this option to define a new fence.


5. To create a new fence, follow these steps:

i. Click Define Fence. The Define Fence page is displayed.

ii. Select the fence type such as Geo, Wi-Fi, and Time fence and create the new fence as required. To know how to create different types of fences, see Add Fences.

6. Select the Geo Fence, Time Fence, and Wi-Fi Fence that you want to apply on the device.

7. Set the Fence Relation option to AND or OR as required.

● If you select AND, the fence triggers only when all the defined fence conditions are met.

● If you select OR, the fence triggers when any of the defined fence conditions meet.

8. Select any Set Trigger on option:

Fence In: If you select the fence In, the restrictions will be applied on the device when the device goes into the defined fences (Geo, Time, Wi-Fi) fence.

Fence Out: If you select Fence Out, the restrictions will be applied on the device when the device goes out of the defined fences (Geo, Time, Wi-Fi).

9. Select Action/Alert/Restriction to be performed when the fence configuration is applied on the device.

Define Actions: When the device comes in the defined fence, the defined actions will be carried out on the device such as Block, Trace, and Notification. The Seqrite mSuite Admin will get the notifications.

Alerts: If this option is selected, the user will receive email notification when the fence is triggered.

Apply Restriction: Helps to apply restriction on the device when the fence configuration is applied on the device. The restrictions include Policies, Web Security, and App configurations.

10. Click Save.

Note:

• If GPS is blocked in any policy then it will not map with Geo Fence. If Wi-Fi is blocked in any policy then it will not map with Wi-Fi Fence.
