Zero-touch Enrollment: How to Get it Started

Google’s Android Zero-Touch Enrollment (ZTE) or Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) is a straightforward device enrollment approach designed to simplify the process of enrolling multiple Android devices for organizations. With ZTE, devices are automatically enrolled in a Mobile Device Management (MDM) system without requiring any manual input from the user. This makes the deployment process more efficient, as devices can be set up with pre-configured policies and apps, and can be managed remotely from a centralized console.  Zero-touch enrollment is a secure and scalable method of device provisioning that can help organizations save time and reduce costs associated with device management. Your mobile devices come preloaded with enforced management that can be easily configured over the air, straight out of the box.

A Few of the Advantages That Zero-Touch Enrollment Provides:

  • One-time setup: With Android ZTE, you only need to set up your device once. After that, mandatory Mobile Device Management (MDM) takes over, making it easy to deploy and manage a large number of devices across your organization.
  • Large-scale enterprise device rollout: Whether you need to deploy devices to a handful of employees or thousands of them, this makes the process simple and efficient.
  • Mandatory MDM management: ZTE enables MDM management to be mandatory. This ensures that all devices are properly secured and managed, reducing the risk of data breaches and other security issues.
  • Easy enrollment process: Resellers can add devices to the portal, making the enrollment process quick. This saves time and effort and ensures that all devices are enrolled properly.
  • Automatic app and profile setup: Administrators can set up devices with the necessary apps and profiles, which get applied automatically on device activation. This makes it easy to customize devices and ensures that employees have access to the tools they need to get their work done.

Here’s how it works: 

When you turn on your Android device for the first time, it will automatically check if it has been assigned an enterprise configuration. If it has, the device will initiate the fully managed device provisioning method and download the correct device policy controller app. This app will then take care of completing the setup of the managed device, making it a breeze to get your devices up and running with minimal effort.


To take advantage of zero-touch enrollment, you’ll need a device that runs Android Pie (9.0) or later, purchased from a reseller partner. If you don’t have that, don’t worry – a compatible device that runs Android Oreo (8.0), or a Pixel phone that runs Android Nougat (7.0), also purchased from a reseller partner, will do the trick.

In addition, you’ll need a zero-touch account established by a zero-touch reseller partner and an enterprise mobility management (EMM) or mobile device management (MDM) solution that supports fully managed devices. But once you have all of these pieces in place, you’ll be well on your way to managing your devices with ease and efficiency.
