Creating event notifications

You can create event notifications that the user will see on their Android or iOS device. Notifications are sent via push notification, SMS, or email, and only apply to app compliance policy violations.

In the context of MTD threat detection, notifications for server-initiated compliance events are governed and controlled by MTD console. When MTD console detects a non-compliant event, it generates a compliance action, and sends a message to the affected devices. This is a separate process from compliance notification for Local Actions policy.
