I'm a network admin at a large non-profit. We are in the evaluation stage of rolling out MDM. We have an Office 365 subscription and Office 365 MDM is included, so that's what we're planning to use.

Fingerprint authentication on iOS devices is compatible with MDM. But I'm aware that at least Office 365 MDM (and apparently other MDM systems as well) breaks Android fingerprint authentication. I'm trying to figure out why that is. Is there a security problem with the Android implementation of fingerprint authentication? Something else going on?

I'd like to be able to tell the "powers that be" why we would break fingerprint authentication for our Android users.

Thanks!

Rob

There is an interesting discussion about that at the following site.
