OverviewAdmin & ArchitectDevice ManagementEvents

Afaria 7 for Administrators and Architects

An Afaria Administrator is the person that operates the Afaria Server via the Afaria Administration console.  The Administrator Console is the Afaria Server “interface”, a Web UI that you can access with any supported Web browser (e.g. Chrome, Safari, IE, etc.) on many popular devices including the iPad.  Afaria uses role-based access policies to control user rights.  The rights are associated with functions in the user interface and with individual Afaria Tenants.  You can also define server configuration, set roles for the administrators, manage devices, groups, and policies, and monitor system activity.

Afaria Architecture

Afaria uses a distributed architecture that provides complete functionality and enterprisegrade security while managing mobile devices and computers.

The architecture uses the enterprise network behind your firewall for components that require the highest security, uses the DMZ for proxy components, and uses public entities in the Internet for publicly available services, such as commercial application markets.
