On-demand webinar: Apple user enrollment, BYOD and IBM Security MaaS360

Manage iOS, iPad OS and macOS devices all in one place

Supporting iOS 13, iPad OS, and earlier, IBM MaaS360® with Watson™ enables you to manage iPhones and iPads and take instant advantage of the latest version updates with Apple device management.

These capabilities include the configuration of single sign-on (SSO) and multifactor authentication (MFA) upon enrollment; support for managed Apple IDs; Apple Business Manager (ABM), Volume Purchase Program (VPP), Device Enrollment Program (DEP) and supervised device support on macOS, iPadOS, and iOS; and user enrollment on BYOD and personally enabled corporate iOS devices.

MaaS360 supports macOS versions 10.5 through 10.15 Catalina. MaaS360 provides simple, over-the-air (OTA) enrollment and a unified, consistent workflow to give you the visibility and control you need to manage macOS alongside other devices in your enterprise environment

Unified endpoint management (UEM) is the new MDM

MDM has evolved. As end users begin to work from anywhere on any device, modern management practices have moved beyond solely applying to “mobile” devices. For Apple users, this is especially true as macOS can be secured and managed in similar ways to iOS 13 and iPadOS.
