Mobile Client Policy Overview

From Swivel 3.9.4 onwards the Swivel Mobile client can be configured with server settings that will be applied to all Mobile Clients.

This document supplements the existing documents for individual phone types.

Policy changes made on the server are applied to the clients when they provision the device or request new security strings.
