Google Apps Mobile Management

Google Apps mobile management is Free for all Google Apps for Business, Education and Government customers. The Administrator can view reports, enforce device policies and remotely block or wipe a stolen device, additionally you can audit Apps that access your Google Apps via Android devices. Policies can be set by organisational unit (e.g. the Finance Dept) including password policies, encryption (dependent on Andriod version) , activation approval for user installed Apps accessing the Google Apps data. There are some limitations on the granularity of reports and controls depending on the type of device.

There is also a degree of self service possible for users who have installed the Google Apps device policy via their My Device page;- from there they can remotely reset the pin, ring the device or remotely locate if location is turned on.
