Secure, Monitor, and Manage macOS Devices with SureMDM
What is macOS MDM?
macOS devices are immensely gaining traction in the enterprise world. Even though it was not initially developed for work purposes, the Mac is quickly becoming a mainstay in the business world owing to its robust features and functionalities. To monitor and manage these Mac Devices effectively, organizations use macOS MDM software. This software helps IT admins to easily monitor, secure and manage macOS devices used within the organization, install apps and content to these devices as well as enforce security policies and restrictions on them.
macOS MDM for Device Lifecycle Management
If you want to manage macOS devices, you must start by enrolling them into a macOS MDM solution, in conjunction with Apple business Manager. Then, you will need to provide the Mac devices by pushing apps, content, and security policies onto them. Now, the devices are ready to deploy to actual users. At this point, you can use the Mac MDM tool to monitor each device and ensure it stays secure and compliant with your security policies. In the event devices conflict with your security policies, you can take corrective action using the macOS Mobile Device Management solution. When devices reach the end of their lifecycle, you can safely take them offline and retire them using the Mac MDM solution.
