Mobilizing Learning with VMware AirWatch K–12 Essentials

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.

For more information, check out Apple&#rsquo;s Device Enrollment Program Guide.

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.

To reach this level of product certification, AirWatch MDM and AirWatch MDM Agent were rigorously tested by a third-party independent laboratory against the rigid specifications set out by the respective NIAP Protection Profiles.

This certification enables AirWatch MDM for National Security System procurement, according to the Committee on National Systems Security Policy #11. AirWatch MDM and MDM Agent were also listed on the Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSFC) Components Listing, available here.

Now, the highest level of customer security can be obtained through the procurement and validated configuration of AirWatch, the most robust unified endpoint management system on the market.

The AirWatch Security and Best Practices team strives to meet the highest levels of product fortification against the most rigorous of regulatory standards. In 2016, AirWatch launched an official Certifications and Compliance Program to steer these efforts. Within the last year, the AirWatch R&D team achieved third-party independent review of FIPS Validated Module usage in MDM and application software development kits (SDK), a Department of Defense DISA Security Technical Implementation Guide, Common Criteria Certification, Commercial Solutions for Classified Component listing and many others.

We are excited about this achievement and the opportunity to meet the strict security requirements of our government customers. In addition to Common Criteria certification, we encourage you to read more about the new innovations just announced for VMware Workspace ONE and AirWatch.
