MobiControl v14.1.5 Release Notes

14.1.5 Build 1284 (June 20, 2018)

MD5 Checksum: 09fb8e37c72f50b7b72c545c82c2a7d8

Upgrade Observations

  • The MobiControl installer will warn on upgrade if it detects Profiles with the Webroot powered "Web Filter" and/or "Antivirus" device configurations. Future upgrades will not be allowed unless all "Web Filter" configurations are transitioned to "SOTI Surf", and all Android device agents are upgraded to v13.5 or higher to continue support for Antivirus.

Features and Improvements

  • MobiControl now supports Enterprise Firmware Over the Air (E-FOTA), a Samsung feature which allows you to control the distribution of software updates to your Samsung Android devices. You can ensure your devices remain up to date with the latest security patches or postpone an update while you test its compatibility with your current apps.
