Device Management is a security mechanism designed to ensure that only authorized devices can use FileFlex Enterprise. Device management is used with the user's FileFlex login credentials to authenticate both the user and device as a type of two-factor authentication for better security. For example, if an adversary tricked a user to reveal their username and password through phishing, they would still be unable to access organizational storage as those credentials are only accepted when sent from the user's own authorized devices.
Device management is set up and administered by the FileFlex administrator. If device management is enabled, then users are prohibited from using the FileFlex Enterprise web client. They must use the FileFlex Enterprise native clients for Widows, Mac, Android or iOS.
