We are happy to announce two new features for Okta Mobility Management:

  • Jail break and root detection (Generally Available)
  • Wi Fi provisioning

These two new features make it even easier to secure your environment and help on board new users faster and with less support from IT.

Jail Break Detection

Admins can immediately see if a device has been jailbroken or rooted by selecting Devices from the Admin Dashboard, then scrolling down to the Device Security section. Select Jailbroken/Rooted to see a list of affected OMM devices.
