In SOTI MobiControl, a profile is a named set of configurations and software that affects mobile devices. A profile can contain configurations or packages or both.

Configurations are device settings or accounts that modify the functionality of devices. For example, depending on your device platform you can limit access to certain types of applications, provision security certificates or configure VPN settings.

Packages are containers for applications, scripts or files to be installed on your devices. If you need to send an application to these devices, you must first wrap it in a package that tells SOTI MobiControl how to install the application onto your devices. SOTI MobiControl provides a standalone application named Package Studio to easily turn your applications into packages compatible with SOTI MobiControl.

This help section provides reference information about the dialog boxes and wizards you use when you create or edit profiles.
