At the enterprise level, it’d be cumbersome and risky to manage company-owned Macs manually – without a platform to enforce best practices and security standards, your devices could be vulnerable. The first step toward more efficient Mac management is using Apple Business Manager. Apple Business Manager is a portal that helps IT keep track of all company devices from a single platform and purchase apps and books for them in bulk.
Linking a mobile device management (MDM) solution, like Kandji, to Apple Business Manager, unlocks even more capabilities. With this link, all company Macs become associated with the MDM, making it easier to enroll devices, deploy content, and configure security settings. Businesses that use an MDM with Apple Business Manager can also use zero touch deployment. This feature automatically prepares devices for new employees without IT having to touch them.
