This mobile Browser app for Android tablets and smartphones is for use with NetSupport
DNA, a single, low-cost solution delivering IT Asset Management, Classroom Instruction, Internet Safety and more – with dedicated versions available for schools and corporate enterprises.
Note: This enhanced app is a replacement for the NetSupport DNA 'Inventory Only' Agent app.
The app supports NetSupport DNA’s core desktop management capabilities. When launched, it will interrogate the Android device to gather key system inventory details and monitor online activity. The data collected is dynamically sent to your local NetSupport DNA Server and is then available for reporting within the NetSupport DNA Management Console.
Standard browser navigation features including bookmarks, add tabs (with the option to set a default home page), internet history, plus the option to change the default search engine are also included on the DNA Browser app’s toolbar.
