HiddenApp is the perfect fleet security complement to Jamf, enabling real-time location tracking, device monitoring and advanced recovery tools, all actionable through a user-friendly dashboard.
When a device goes missing, the consequences go beyond the cost of a replacement. HiddenApp multi-layered approach offers preventive and proactive measures and tools to deal with device-related incidents, such as theft, loss or breach of policy.
Prevent device loss
HiddenApp’s proactive prevention and detection functionality is an early warning system that improves the chances of detecting and recovering missing devices. This early warning system includes a geofencing capability, which detects and reports when a device physically leaves an authorized location, and IP whitelisting, which detects and reports when a device is connected to an unauthorized network.
Identify unauthorized users
If you believe the device has been misplaced permanently, or possibly stolen, simply set the device to “missing’ on your HiddenApp dashboard. HiddenApp will get to work beaming in tracking data, as well as taking secret screenshots of what’s happening on-screen and iSight photos to capture the unauthorized user on camera, creating an audit trail that’s perfect for creating a strong evidence base.
Of course, HiddenApp takes privacy seriously, and has flexible privacy settings fitted as standard. This means that the tracking and investigative settings – location, network, photos, screenshots and keylogging – can each be enabled or disabled individually. Data gathered as a result of tracking can be permanently deleted, too.
Track down missing devices with pinpoint accuracy
HiddenApp’s ultra-accurate location tracking shows you the device’s exact real time location on Google Maps. You can even track it to a physical address, as HiddenApp will discover and report the name of the network your device is connected to, and its proximity to the router.
Send audio and written messages to devices
HiddenApp’s messaging feature has a variety of applications, especially those that can lead to faster recovery of a device. Messages are totally customizable and have been used to give the finder of the device the owner’s contact details and, if appropriate, the tempting information that there’s a reward for its recovery.
HiddenApp’s messaging function is a useful communications tool for sending out important notifications or emergency messages, and has been especially useful to schools and colleges, which have used it to flag up reminders to students to return their devices at the end of a school year or lease period, or when they have changed school district. There’s also an option to send out bulk messages to the whole fleet, or just to particular groups.
HiddenApp’s functionality can be an integral part of a robust information security management system, which you’ll need in order to demonstrate compliance with a range of regulatory or voluntary requirements. As well as keeping devices secure from theft and loss, HiddenApp helps to enforce corporate device-use policies, such as:
- Location-based security policies, allowing operation in authorized zones only.
- IP-based security policies, allowing connection to authorized networks only.
Its automated activity logging, reporting and device visibility provides a perfect audit trail to keep auditors happy.
Once you’ve integrated Jamf and HiddenApp, you can import devices directly from Jamf. Auto-enrollment between Jamf and HiddenApp makes things even more straightforward, meaning you can add devices to your fleet in Jamf, and they’ll automatically be enrolled into your HiddenApp account.
We’ve streamlined workflows even further with the addition of Auto-deployment, which creates a policy in Jamf to deploy the HiddenApp package to all enrolled devices programmatically.
