Android Enterprise require encrypt storage or not

Iron Contributor



I am currently testing Microsoft Defender for Endpoint on an Android 8. This device is enrol in fully managed.

I have a compliance that require ""Encryption of data storage on device".

But when I run for the first time Microsoft Defender it ask me to deactivate the secure launch of the device. So I did it.

But after that my phone is not compliant.


I read 2 links of Microsoft. This one :

That says : "You don't have to configure this setting because Android Enterprise devices enforce encryption."


And this one :

That says to add "Encryption of data storage on device" at Required.


So I don't know what to do. Do you have advice please?


And do you know why Microsoft Defender ask to deactivate the pin code ont the launch of the device please?
