Why does MDM break Android fingerprint authentication?

I'm a network admin at a large non-profit. We are in the evaluation stage of rolling out Office 365 MDM. 

 

Fingerprint authentication on iOS devices is compatible with MDM. But I'm aware that at least Office 365 MDM breaks Android fingerprint authentication. I'm trying to figure out why that is. Is there a security problem with the Android implementation of fingerprint authentication? Something else going on?

I'd like to be able to tell the "powers that be" why we would break fingerprint authentication for our Android users.

 

Thanks!
