What is fencing and how it works?

With the rise in the number of mobile devices, securing the confidential data has become crucial. Seqrite mSuite upholds a very strong feature of fencing for securing the confidential data. The Fencing feature acts as a virtual boundary.

Fencing allows you to setup rules to allow or to restrict the user by applying the policy,profiles or app configurations to the user device.

Seqrite mSuite defines the safe areas for the devices. The fence triggers and sends alerts when the device leaves the assigned boundaries. The virtual barrier allows you to know the user device entry or exit of defined boundaries. You can set up the triggers when the device meets the defined boundaries. The fencing technique uses geographical locations, Wi-Fi SSIDs, and time as boundaries.

Seqrite mSuite supports the following fence types:

Wi-Fi Fence

The Wi-Fi fencing is a technique that uses Wi-Fi SSID to define the fence. Whenever the user device gets connected to the defined SSID, the Wi-Fi fence triggers and then the selected restrictions in that Wi-Fi fence are applied on the device.

Geo Fence

The Geo fencing helps to create the fence with restrictions in a geographical area. This option lets you allow or restrict the usage of the features within a specific area by tracking the device via GPS (global positioning system). Whenever the device enters the defined location, then the Geo fence triggers on the device and all the restrictions are applied on the user’s device. This fencing allows to create a virtual barrier around a location on a map. This option helps to detect entry or exit of the device from the defined perimeter. You can draw a circle on the map to define the boundaries.

Time Fence

The Time fencing helps you to setup the time-based rules to be applied on the user devices. This option helps to limit the users of Seqrite mSuite by defining the time as the boundary. You can define a particular time and particular dates to define the fencing. Whenever the defined time is executed on the device, then the fence triggers on the device and the restrictions are applied on the device. If you want to execute time fencing on particular days within the defined time range, you can select the days that you want to execute fencing. You can also exclude executing the fencing on a particular date from the defined fencing period.
