I want to know some details on a device's data encryption?

This MDM supports device encryption or not?

In Headwind MDM, device data encryption is turned off. The reason is that in most cases the device encryption is not required, whereas the encryption significantly increases the device enrollment time.

I think it's a good idea to add the encryption option in the UI.

There's a workaround how you can turn on device data encryption. When you generate a QR code for the device enrollment, read it by some QR code reader, remove the attribute:

"android.app.extra.PROVISIONING_SKIP_ENCRYPTION":true

and pack the JSON back into the QR code.

This will turn on the device data encryption.
