G Suite: View additional activities for managed devices in the devices audit log
What’s new: The devices audit log in the Admin console provides a report on the activities of managed mobile and desktop devices in your organization. Previously, this report was limited to domains with advanced mobile management enabled. To make it even more useful, we’re now showing some of the events in this report to G Suite Business, Enterprise, and Enterprise for Education customers with basic mobile management and endpoint verification enabled as well.
These customers can now use this report to:
- Find out when a G Suite account has been added to a device.
- Learn when device screen locks have been enabled and disabled.
In addition, the devices audit log will now contain admin activities, like when an account wipe has been requested or executed. Knowledge of these activities can help you keep your users’ devices, and the data contained on them, safe. You can find this report in the Admin console at Reports > Audit > Devices.
At launch, for basic mobile management and endpoint verification customers, this report will only show events on managed Android and endpoint verification devices. We’re working on expanding coverage to more devices in the future.
