Why Choose SureMDM by 42Gears for iOS device management

Organizations spend a lot of time and money trying to manage various aspects of their devices deployed in the field. Often, companies use separate tools to manage the devices throughout their lifecycle in the enterprise. This includes tools for enrolling devices, configuring devices remotely, managing applications and securing data, monitoring compliance, and more.

Enables out-of-the-box configuration of Apple devices

In order to effectively manage, monitor, and secure Apple devices in an enterprise environment, IT admins must enroll Apple devices into Apple Business Manager (ABM) or Apple School Manager (ASM). ABM and ASM provide IT admins with a streamlined method to deploy enterprise-owned Apple devices and enroll them in an MDM solution remotely. 

SureMDM’s integration with ABM and ASM ensures that all devices are remotely configured with necessary software and settings. This makes devices ready to be used out-of-the-box.

Improves operational processes or workflows and provides flexibility

Whenever devices are deployed across the globe,  IT admins need to ensure routine device-related tasks are completed. These include distributing and updating firmware and applications, monitoring battery and data usage, generating analytics reports, and more. All these tasks can be quite time consuming and yet are necessary for effective iOS device management.

For instance, IT admins can schedule OS updates and enable compliance policies on Mac devices through SureMDM.

Any or all of these can compromise device security and result in data loss.

Firstly, it helps admins restrict users from accessing device settings, and authenticate enterprise users before allowing access to corporate emails. Secondly, it allows admins to locate multiple lost iOS and iPadOS devices remotely. Thirdly, it prevents users from downloading unauthorized apps.
