With the expansion of BYOD programs from mobile devices to traditional computers, enterprises are finding that the security and management requirements of these two classes of devices are similar. MobileIron for Mac lets organizations manage Mac computers along with iPhones, iPads, and other mobile devices. MobileIron implements policies and profiles easily and consistently across the company while tightly integrating with enterprise services such as AD/LDAP, Microsoft Exchange, PKI, VPN, and Apple Profile Manager. MobileIron preserves the native user experience of the Mac and allows end users to provision their Mac computers for enterprise services with just a few clicks.
With MobileIron OS X Management, the enterprise can now support Mac computers as part of their BYOD or multi-OS initiative:
- Centrally secure and manage the Mac
- Deploy consistent policies and profiles across Mac computers and iOS devices
- Complement Apple management tools such as Profile Manager
- Expand scope of BYOD programs
