Android Security Patch Level
The ability to check on the security patch level on android devices in for example the complaincy check.
We have looked into this feature, but unfortunately the patch levels between different devices and even carrier versions are too inconsistent to be used in any rule.
Sorry, we currently see no way to implement this
(BTW: Our newly added macOS support has this feature, but this is only 1 vendor)
yes very much needed option
At least add this inconsistent information in "reports - device inventory"...
The most devices in our enviroment have this propert present:
With value: 2018-05-05 or 2017-08-01
The value is date, so it should be possible to make a compliance rule like: Security patch version no older than....
Can you explain that a little? When I look at all my android devices, I can see that value in the device properties tab. And they're all reported in what I would say is a consistent manner, i.e. 2018-01-01, 2017-10-01, etc. Basically just a date stamp. This is across Android 6, 7, 7.1, and 8.0 on different carriers and device models. So are you referring to something different?
Since I can see it, it's obviously being discovered already. It would be nice to at least add it to the device details report, even if it can't be used in a compliance rule.
