ATLANTA, March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AirWatch by VMware, the leading enterprise mobility management (EMM) provider, announces comprehensive, same-day support for iOS 7.1 and the Apple Device Enrollment Program. Customers can immediately leverage the new streamlined device enrollment process and key enhancements in iOS 7.1, including activation lock commands, clear activation lock commands and token updates.
The Apple Device Enrollment Program addresses the mass configuration needs of organizations purchasing and deploying devices in large quantities, without the need for factory customization or pre-configuration of devices prior to deployment. Through the program, organizations can provision and prevent removal of mobile device management (MDM) profiles on an iOS device purchased through Apple. The non-removable MDM profile that comes pre-configured on the device is particularly beneficial for educational institutions and corporate-owned device deployments.
"Businesses and educational institutions can immediately leverage the new capabilities from iOS 7.1 and the Apple Device Enrollment Program to streamline their deployments and enable persistent device management," said John Marshall, senior vice president and general manager, AirWatch by VMware. "We worked closely with several of our customers to pilot the Device Enrollment Program, and we know organizations are excited to take advantage of these enhancements."
On iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Mac devices running iOS 7 and higher, the Device Enrollment Program enables IT administrators to:
- Install a non-removable MDM profile on a device
- Enforce enrollment for all end users
- Provision devices in Supervised mode without needing to connect each device to Apple Configurator
- Eliminate the need for manual provisioning or staging processes – devices can be delivered directly to end-users
Additionally, end users can benefit by:
- Simplifying the enrollment process 'out of the box'
- Minimizing post-enrollment steps required by leveraging silent installation of apps for Supervised devices
