MDM capabilities are built into macOS®, iOS® and iPadOS® to provide businesses with a scalable way to manage every Apple® device they use. It allows them to remotely update settings, deploy applications, monitor compliance, query devices, and remotely wipe or lock devices over the air.
The manual setup of multiple devices takes a lot of time. This is time that you could spend growing their business. Mobile device management (MDM) can handle the setup process automatically for each computer. Businesses create an MDM profile that includes network and security settings. When a Mac®, iPhone®, iPad®, or Apple TV® joins MDM, it automatically receives these settings.
MDM solutions can also be used to install apps from the Mac App Store® or third-party app developers. If your customer uses apps to get work done, those apps can be automatically installed and updated through the MDM solution. And when they are no longer needed, the MDM-installed apps can be removed.
Data security is crucial to any business. A data breach can cost millions in lost revenue. An MDM solution can help businesses ensure their devices meet company security standards. It lets IT teams activate built-in security features to encrypt data, and enforce security settings without the need for third-party tools. Configuration profiles can also enforce password strength requirements, apply restrictions, and deliver credentials for Wi-Fi and VPN access.
If your business has a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program, employees can enroll their own personal Mac, iPhone or iPad in the company's MDM solution to receive corporate settings. Once the device is enrolled and set up, you can use the MDM solution to query, change, or update settings. Mac Business Solutions works closely with Jamf, a leader in MDM solutions as part of our integrated deployment solutions and services.
