Applies to: iOS and Android running the Centrify Mobile App
When and How does Centrify Mobile Manager check for jailbroken and/or rooted devices?
-When: Currently, Centrify Mobile Manager checks for rooted/jailbroken devices at enrollment and continuously thereafter.
-How: For both Android and iOS, there are multiple files that get created and/or modified after rooting or jailbreaking the device. Centrify searches for those files, and if they are found- it is indicative of a jailbroken or rooted device.
Note: When devices are detected as jailbroken or rooted, Centrify does not unenroll already enrolled devices. Centrify only sends the status to the Cloud. Policy settings determine what is done with the device after detection. If the policy is set to disallow jailbroken and/or rooted devices, once the jailbreak/root is discovered then the device will be set to "Inactive." If the policy is set to 'not configured' or 'allowed'; no other action will be taken.
