Learn Latest Features of SAP Afaria 7.0: The Core of the SAP Mobile Secure Solution

Hello SAP Mobile, SAP Afaria and SAP Mobile Secure Community,

SAP Mobile Secure combines the power of SAP’s leading mobile device management and security solutions and embraces mobile platform and device diversity. The SAP Mobile Secure portfolio includes three key technologies: SAP Afaria 7.0, SAP Mobile App Protection by Mocana and SAP Mobile Documents.

SAP Education has just released a course update to its 5-day SAP Afaria 7.0 technical training to include the latest features that support the SAP Mobile Secure solution. The revised AFA461: SAP Afaria 7.0 System Administration course is ideal for system and platform administrators whose key function on an SAP Mobile Secure project team is the implementation of its core component – SAP Afaria. As you know, at the heart of SAP Mobile Secure is SAP Afaria 7.0, which is the technology that enables enterprises to manage and secure large-scale deployments of mobile devices and the applications loaded on to those devices. Sap Afaria allows employees to quickly and securely self-enroll and IT to meet their KPIs for security and compliance.

On the first day of instruction, you will learn the role of SAP Afaria in MDM and device security and how SAP Afaria communicates via the Afaria Database Server, Afaria API Service, and Afaria Clients (agent on the devices). You will then quickly move on to the architecture and assess various system landscape scenarios. Immediately afterwards, you will begin your exercises with an intensive, hands-on learning journey through the implementation and/or configuration of the following components:

  • SAP Afaria database
  • SAP Afaria Server
  • Afaria API Service
  • Afaria Administrator Console
  • Relay Server
  • Enrollment Server
  • Package Server
  • End User Self-Service Portal
  • Microsoft ® Certificate Authority Server
  • Programs Residing on the Afaria Host Server
  • Afaria Channel Administrator

Your journey continues onto specific tasks and activities focused on enterprise mobile device management, monitoring, reporting, and security to ensure that you are ready to manage your SAP Afaria landscape, devices, users and applications through a typical MDM lifecycle.
