Blacklisting Mobile Device - SAS VA

Dear All,

I want to know the secuity aspect of SAS VA.

In case of device theft, I blacklist the device from manage environment ''manage devices'' but I want to know what happens to the data in it. Whether the data will be flushed automatically or it will be still there in the mobile DB?

greetings

Hi There,

I have demonstrated blacklisting an iPad a number of times when I teach SAS VA courses for SAS Education Australia. Upon blacklisting a device within SAS Visual Analytics Administrator (manage environment) the next time the device attempts to connect a dialog appears on the iPad stating that a connection cannot be made. When the dialog is closed all existing downloaded reports and the connection details are removed from the device.

Kind Regards,

Michelle

Michelle, thanks for your quick reply. I am looking out to know the data associated with the reports that gets saved in Mobile Database, Will that be deleted too?

coz internally the database will store the data in a schema structure that has been passed on to...it will not be hard task to retrieve the data...a hacker or a tech geek can do it. It's the concern of one of the customer that I discussed with.

I am aware of connection deletion and report deletion that I've done earlier but I am bit concerned about residual data that gets saved in mobile database. It becomes  important when it is a sensitive business data. your view/ suggestions pls.
