Can AirWatch enforce encryption for device backups?
For iOS devices, AirWatch can require the encryption of backups through a restriction profile. The "Force Encrypted Backups" restriction, when pushed to iOS devices, will ensure that any backups a user takes are encrypted.
For Android devices, backups are largely dependent on the OS itself as well as the particular model of device. While there is no API to enforce encryption directly, most Android devices allow users to utilize a password to encrypt data during the backup itself.
