Remote Control a Samsung Galaxy with MaaS360

Samsung Australia were kind enough to loan me Galaxy Note 3 to test it’s capabilities with MaaS360. It’s a fantastic smartphone and the screen resolution was amazing.

MaaS360 provides a range of Android device management.  Samsung have extended this capability for their devices via Samsung SAFE (Samsung for Enterprise).   MaaS360 also has the capabilities to provide remote control of these devices, just like a traditional PC or Mac.

Enrolling a device to MaaS360 is very simple.  The administrator can configure all users to enrol in a pre-defined URL, which they can then be authenticated to a companies Active Directory server.  The following are a set of screen captures when I enrolled my device.

The Samsung phone would then register to MaaS360 and I could then manage the device.  I was then able to distribute the MaaS360 Remote Control application.

The user would install the application as shown in these screen captures:

The MaaS360 administrator can then select to remote control the device as shown:

Samsung Remote Control 1

The user is then prompted on their phone to accept remote control.

After a few seconds, the administrator can view and take control of the device as shown in this video.

If you have any questions, head to the MaaS360 MDM forum.  If you would like to try out MaaS360, you can register for a free 30-day trial by going to www.maas360.com/IBM.
