A quick Google suggests Mimecast perhaps? Some other devices like a Now
TV box and Chromecasts also support receiving a screencast.

It also depends on whether your phone is capable of casting in the first
place. Looking it up, screen casting was introduced in Android 4.4.2. If
your phone runs an earlier Android you might be able to add casting by
installing Mimecast or some other app, but they might still depend on
the Android OS providing the functionality to enable screencasting in
the first place.
