Installation - G DATA Internet Security for Android

To make use of G DATA's mobile device management capabilities, you can install a specially tailored business version of G DATA Internet Security on your Android devices. G DATA Administrator offers installation capabilities for Android clients in the Clients panel. Select the clients and click Send installation link to mobile clients to send an e-mail containing a download link for the Internet Security app.

Open the e-mail message on the mobile device and tap the download link to download the installer APK file. Note that the option Unknown sources (Allow installation of non-Market apps) needs to be enabled in order to install APK files. This option is usually found in Android's system menu Settings > Security > Device Administration. After opening the APK file and confirming its requested permissions, G DATA Internet Security for Android will be installed and can be started from the Android app menu.

To finalize the installation, remote administration has to be enabled. The e-mail contains a link that automatically opens G DATA Internet Security for Android and configures the relevant settings. Alternatively, enter the data manually. Open the Settings > General menu, tick the checkbox Allow remote administration and enter the name or IP address of the ManagementServer under Server address. Under Device name you can enter a name that will be used to identify the device in G DATA Administrator. Password should contain the password that you entered in G DATA Administrator (which is also listed in the installation e-mail).

The device will be listed among the other clients in G DATA Administrator's Clients module and can be managed from there. If it does not appear automatically, reboot the device to force it to check in with the G DATA ManagementServer.
