    @Sergio Londono, Thanks for posting in Q&A.

    In General, Android Enterprise is recommended when we choose the enrollment method. As it has more features and Google is reducing device administrator support in new Android releases. But before we choose Android Enterprise, we need to ensure that Android Enterprise is available in your country or region: https://support.google.com/work/android/answer/6270910

    And also the device needs to support Android Enterprise:

    However, if the above requirements are not met, then we can choose Android device administrator instead. Here is a link with more details:


    Hope the above information can help.
