Hi,

Is there an option to hide the stettings screen on the end clients?
This is an information security issue that we don't want the user name or
server name to be visible on the client in case it is stolen.

Another solution might be the use of alias user name that will map to the
real user on the MO server, is it supported, how?

Thank you,
Yehuda Ben Yaakov

Hi Yehuda,

depending on the device platform, you can use the stand alone security
manager or the Afaria DataProtection manager. That will deny an attacker
access via the UI to the configuration data.
