Policies set as part of MDM

  • At least 6 digit PIN is required to lock your mobile phone.
  • MS Outlook is the only approved app for accessing Trinity email.
  • OneDrive for Business and SharePoint for saving Trinity corporate data.
  • Minimum IOS 11 and Android v.6 allowed. That is only one version behind current version.
  • Managed Applications cannot be backed up to iCloud this assists in efforts to keep Trinity data stored within Microsoft environment only.
  • After 10 failed attempts at sign-in the device will be automatically wiped.

Configuration Service (MDM)

Once the Trinity staff mobile phone is ordered by the Point of Contact it is assigned to a particular member of staff with Three. Three Ireland registers the device and it is assigned as a corporate Trinity branded phone to Trinity. This means the phone can only be used by that authorised member of Trinity.

Each Trinity staff mobile phone is registered in the Trinity Mobile Device Management system. This allows IT Services to provide a GDPR compliant service for the Trinity funded Mobile estate by protecting access to corporate data accessible through these staff mobile phones. It allows pre-registration of the phones, Trinity branding of the phones and enforcement of a security PIN. The MDM pre-installs applications to these phones It also facilitates the phone to be securely deleted remotely by IT Services if they are reported stolen or lost. The MDM supports GDPR compliance, improves data security and optimises user experience.

As part of the enrolment process, the authorized person must consent to the following Terms and Conditions. The MDM system collects information about the device but cannot read emails, messages or the contents of apps, personal data stored on the phone or iCloud or personal photos.

The Trinity staff member is also permitted to use the mobile phone for personal use subject to the acceptable user policy. They may use approved App store and Google Play store apps that they have purchased themselves. They may also process their own personal data on the phone – such as photographs and files. However, they do so at their own risk and are responsible for backing up their own personal data. IT Services support does not extend to personally owned data or apps. All use of the mobile phone must follow the terms and conditions set by IT Services to ensure GDPR compliance.

The following apps are available to Staff as standard as part of the configuration service:

  • MS Outlook
  • Managed Browser
  • Edge Browser
  • OneDrive for Business
  • Skype for Business
  • Microsoft Authenticator App
  • MS Word
  • MS Excel
  • MS PowerPoint
  • MS Teams
  • MS SharePoint Online
