VMware AirWatch Is First UEM to Manage Chromebooks, Extending Cross-Platform Management Leadership

This blog was updated on May 22,2017, with the latest information about the Device Enrollment Program from Apple. Join the conversation on Twitter using #iOSinBusiness.

What is the Device Enrollment Program from Apple?

The Device Enrollment Program provides a fast, streamlined way to deploy your corporate-owned Mac, iOS or tvOS devices. With a mobile device management (MDM) and unified endpoint management solution like VMware AirWatch, IT can:

  • Customize device settings;
  • Activate and supervise devices over the air; and
  • Enable users to setup their own devices out of the box.

What IT challenges does the Device Enrollment Program help address?

The Device Enrollment Program solves several critical requirements for corporate-owned devices. First, organizations save time and money by eliminating high-touch processes for IT. DEP takes configuration time to zero. Deployment of corporate-owned devices with DEP means zero-touch configuration for IT, eliminates staging and automates device configuration.

Second, onboarding iOS or macOS devices is streamlined for users. Based on the settings IT configured, users are prompted through Setup Assistant (skipping through any unnecessary screens). Users only need to authenticate and don&#rsquo;t need to be tech savvy to get the content, apps and email they need on their smartphones.

Finally, supervising iOS devices over the air is possible with the DEP. With supervision, administrators have more control over the device and can disable features like AirDrop, the App Store and account modification. They can also enable features like password protection. Also, the MDM profile cannot be removed, which eliminates the possibility of un-enrollment to protect data and investments in devices and provides the best user experience possible.

What role does AirWatch play in Apple&#rsquo;s Device Enrollment Program?

To utilize the Device Enrollment Program, MDM capabilities like those part of VMware AirWatch are required. AirWatch integrates with the Device Enrollment Program, enabling organizations to automatically import devices in the console based on order history. Then, administrators can easily configure settings, apply profiles, assign applications and set restrictions that will apply automatically when users unbox devices.

How can I join the Device Enrollment Program from Apple?

First, enroll with Apple and register your organization&#rsquo;s information to create an account and designate your administrators. Next, configure your device settings and Setup Assistant steps in the AirWatch console. You then can ship devices directly to your users.

What are the device requirements for the Apple Device Enrollment Program?

The devices must be corporate-owned and purchased directly from Apple or through participating Apple Authorized Resellers.*

*The Device Enrollment Program may not be supported by all Apple Authorized Resellers and carriers.

Where is the Device Enrollment Program available?

The Device Enrollment Program is available in 34 countries: Australia,Austria,Belgium,Brazil,Canada,Czech Republic,Denmark,Finland,France,Germany, Greece,Hong Kong,Hungary,India,Ireland,Italy,Japan,Luxembourg,Mexico,Netherlands, NewZealand,Norway,Poland,Portugal,Singapore,South Africa,Spain,Sweden,Switzerland, Taiwan,Turkey,United Arab Emirates,United Kingdom andUnitedStates.

What’s available for education with the Device Enrollment Program from Apple?

Both Apple and AirWatch give special consideration to unique education use cases. With Apple School Manager (ASM), Apple has delivered a central place for account creation, role definitions and content purchases. To support ASM, AirWatch designed a console section for education to setup mobile deployments and streamline management of teachers, students, classes, apps and more—whether you have a 1:1 or shared device deployment. After importing data from Apple School Manager, use AirWatch to:

  • Match devices with students or classes;
  • Assign applications (to users or devices); and
  • Configure the new Classroom application, allowing teachers to guide learning on iPads.

Students quickly choose the device with their photo displayed once their teacher has started the class.

Unifying Desktop & Mobile: Introducing New Samsung Galaxy S8 + VMware Workspace ONE

Here in VMware End-User Computing (EUC), we&#rsquo;re all about the emergence of the digital workspace. The continuing wave of the consumerization of IT is driving enormous change in how end users work…and expect to work. Many people accept it as standard today; we can use our personal phones, tablets and PCs for work interchangeably with the devices and PCs our employers provide. This assumption leads to the further implication that our applications—from popular Windows apps to internal web apps and increasingly cloud-based services—should be portable and follow you wherever you go with whatever device you decide to use.

We seek to unify the desktop and mobile experience for business users. This is the essence of the digital workspace and what VMware EUC seeks to accomplish for our customers every day with VMware Workspace ONE. That&#rsquo;s why we are so excited about Samsung&#rsquo;s launch of the new Galaxy S8—a tremendous advancement in mobile technology and simply a beautiful device.

Today, VMware announced the expansion of our partnership with Samsung to unify the mobile and desktop experiences for the benefit of business users with the Galaxy S8 and Workspace ONE. Business users struggle with different devices and different experiences across desktop and mobile. With Workspace ONE and Samsung Galaxy S8, they will get a unified experience with a single device that fits in their pocket.

Part of the Galaxy S8 announcement is a new business feature called DeX, short for desktop experience, which allows the S8 to be docked and offers the user full monitor, mouse and keyboard access. The Galaxy S8 with DeX is bringing a PC-like user experience to its flagship Android device. VMware will optimize that DeX experience by bringing the user&#rsquo;s desktop and applications together with Workspace ONE, essentially creating a complete solution for your mobile workforce.

The VMware Horizon family is a key Workspace ONE technology with virtualized applications and desktops served up from the data center or cloud. IDC recently named Horizon a leader in virtual client computing software. For a mobile Samsung Galaxy S8 user who docks the device, the user&#rsquo;s entire Windows desktop, applications and data will be accessible. Our Horizon team is integrating with the DeX APIs to allow full mouse and keyboard support when accessing Horizon desktops and applications. The user will get a true Windows desktop experience as Horizon desktop access defaults to full screen mode on an Android device!

Depending on your IT policies, data can stay protected in the Horizon cloud or data center back end without allowing local storage. Data also can be stored and protected locally using certified Samsung Knox security managed by market-leading VMware AirWatch unified endpoint management.

With Horizon deeply integrated into the Workspace ONE identity-defined digital workspace, the user will have an exceptional experience on Galaxy S8. Users will experience single sign-on not only for all applications, including Horizon Windows apps, corporate web apps, popular cloud services and native Android apps. This is the embodiment of the VMware EUC vision of the digital workspace:

Making business users more productive with all their applications and desktops available on the device of their choice in the moment, with consumer simplicity and enterprise grade security.

It is great to have a partner like Samsung, who shares a common vision for the future of the mobile workforce. Together, the expanded Samsung-VMware relationship is a win-win for our joint customers.
