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.

Dell & VMware Extend PC Management to the Firmware

Greetings from #DellEMCWorld in Las Vegas, where all of the Dell Technologies brands have come together on one stage.

Customers are now seeing the collective strength of the Dell Technologies portfolio come to market—and see […]]> Greetings from #DellEMCWorld in Las Vegas, where all of the Dell Technologies brands have come together on one stage. These are not only exciting times for us, but also for our mutual customers embarking on their digital transformation journey. Customers are now seeing the collective strength of the Dell Technologies portfolio come to market—and see how possibilities are turned to reality.

In today&#rsquo;s keynote, VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger spoke about the constantly expanding partnership between VMware and Dell. One such example is the integration of our industry-leading solutions VMware AirWatch and Dell Client Command systems management tools. AirWatch is a key component of VMware Workspace ONE, an industry leading platform that enables our IT customers to empower their workforce to securely bring the technology of their choice (devices and apps) at the pace and cost the business needs.

The integration extends AirWatch management and remediation capabilities to the system firmware or BIOS. This is another significant proof point of AirWatch&#rsquo;s evolution from enterprise mobility management (EMM) to a unified endpoint management (UEM) solution that goes beyond managing mobile devices to comprehensive Windows 10 and desktop management. At VMware, we see this as just the beginning of a long-term strategy to integrate our digital workspace solutions with Dell devices.

Extending PC Management to the BIOS

Windows devices have many system attributes that IT admins may want to monitor and manage. Typical client management tools allow admins to take actions in the operating system (OS), but fail to extend management capabilities to a lower firmware level. AirWatch integration with Dell Client Command creates an extensible platform that now allows IT admins to:

  • Query and retrieve key system attributes;
  • Configure critical BIOS settings; and
  • Take remediation actions.

All this from the same AirWatch admin console used for managing all the Windows OS policies, apps and other endpoints in your organization. Customers can take advantage of this unique integration as part of the AirWatch 9.1 console release and enable several IT use cases and benefits that improve user uptime, reduce costs and improve security. Let&#rsquo;s examine some of these use cases and benefits:

Proactive Device Management: Minimize User Downtime & Ensure Business Continuity

IT admins can now query and report key system attributes—including device service tag information, current BIOS version and battery health status—for their Dell hardware. This enables admins to create policies that proactively manage Dell devices, minimizing user downtown and ensuring business continuity. Here are two examples:

1. Admins can create custom notifications based on BIOS reporting of the battery health and the recommended threshold for replacement. This allows them to proactively ship replacement batteries to the users before a failure happens and thus avoid any downtime.

2. Admins can quickly report on the BIOS versions across their deployment and immediately locate devices that need attention based on the associated service tag. Implementing the most current BIOS version is critical not just from a usability and security standpoint, but this may also influence the overall life of the device.

BIOS Security & Remediation: Improve Alignment with Compliance & IT Security Policies

The BIOS security features in the AirWatch console enable IT admins to remotely configure BIOS passwords, enable use of Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and take remediation actions on non-compliant devices. This ensures a stronger alignment with the recommended IT security and compliance policies within the organization. Here are two examples:

1. For many organizations, the BIOS passwords are typically difficult to change with the requirement to physically touch the device to make any updates. With the integration, admins can now remotely manage BIOS passwords. You can set different passwords based on custom smartgroup assignments, instantly change passwords in case they are leaked or compromised and even revoke passwords when the device is un-enrolled or an employee leaves the organization.

2. Most enterprise-grade Dell PCs now carry a TPM, which is a tamper-resistant physical chip that ensures overall system integrity. TPM helps encrypt passwords by generating and storing digital certificates and authentication and encryption keys. Thus, the TPM forms a critical element for Windows 10 security and is recommended for a variety of OS security features. These include Windows Hello, BitLocker encryption, Health Attestation and the virtualization-based security features new to the OS (e.g. Secure Boot, Device Guard, Credential Guard and others). With the integration, IT admins can now remotely enable and configure the use of TPM for the organization.

Zero-Touch System Configuration Over-the-Air: Simplify IT Tasks & Reduces Admin Overhead

Traditional BIOS management approaches were high touch, requiring IT admins to access physical machines to change configuration settings. AirWatch, however, adopts a cloud-first management model that enables instant push-based endpoint and app configuration. With Dell Client Command integration, the same over-the-air management approach is now extended for BIOS security and CPU virtualization settings, without admins needing to physically touch the machines. For example, admins can now remotely enable and provide automated support for CPU virtualization features that are required for deployment of VMware desktop products or Hyper-V.

Don&#rsquo;t Forget…

At Dell EMC World this year, we are only beginning to see solutions come to market as a direct result of the VMware and Dell partnership. As we continue this journey for the benefit of our mutual customers, expect to see new solutions that are a true testament of this &#rsquo;better together&#rdquo; partnership. Make sure to tag along as we head into VMworld 2017 for even more exciting innovations.

Since deploying Wandera and VMware AirWatch, HomeServe has identified and blocked more than 1,000 potential mobile security threats every single month.

Read their innovative mobile security case study here.

&#rsquo;Without very strict manual controls in place there was always the risk that users could consume large amounts of data without hitting a cap. It was not possible to control this without a dedicated solution in place.

 

&#rsquo;AirWatch tells me exactly what I need to know very easily. It&#rsquo;s very intuitive to use, and the information I can get out of it is brilliant.&#rdquo;

 

—Martin Evans, delivery manager, HomeServe

HomeServe is a leading home assistance provider that helps homeowners with fixing, maintaining and looking after their homes. It delivers a range of services, including plumbing, drainage, electrics, heating and much more, through a network of approved engineers. Established in 1993, the company has grown the UK-based business to become a global operation listed on the FTSE 250 Index, with almost $1 billion in revenues and employing more than 4,500 staff.

&#rsquo;When users travel internationally,, there is sometimes the risk that even with strong processes in pace, people can forget to notify the correct team to ensure that their tariff is provisioned properly. We actually had an example of this for a user that was protected by Wandera. The device was flagged as being out of the country and our international data policy kicked in automatically. This functionality potentially saves us a lot of money,&#rdquo; Evans said.

Now that it has a coordinated mobility infrastructure in place, HomeServe can also allow employees to work from their own personal devices by enrolling them in the AirWatch and Wandera services.

Announcing the New Reviewer’s Guide for Cloud-Based VMware Workspace ONE

With significant contributions from Kevin Sheehan, End-User-Computing Architect, End-User-Computing Customer Success Team, VMware

The new Reviewer&#rsquo;s Guide for Cloud-Based VMware Workspace ONE is now available to download. Use this Reviewer&#rsquo;s Guide to learn about VMware Workspace ONE architecture and components, and familiarize yourself with its features using the practical exercises.

Mobility is critical for today&#rsquo;s workforce. Work hours are no longer restricted to the traditional nine-to-five schedule. More organizations support remote and flexible working hours. Users require access to their applications, at any time, from any device. The challenge for IT is how to provide application access to corporate or personal devices and still maintain data security.

Workspace ONE rises to this challenge by combining identity and mobility management to provide simple yet secure access to applications. Workspace ONE consists of VMware Identity Manager, VMware AirWatch Enterprise Mobility Management service, and Workspace ONE mobile applications for Android, iOS, and Windows 10.

Benefits include one-touch single sign-on (SSO), conditional access with device compliance, and the choice to use any device—personal or corporate-owned.

The following diagram details Workspace ONE components and features.

Salesforce1 is a mobile business application used by many organizations. The practical exercises in this guide include a section on integrating VMware Identity Manager and Salesforce1, and configuring SSO for Salesforce1.

Adaptive management is another feature demonstrated in the exercises. Using the Workspace ONE mobile application, users can select the applications they want to install. If an application requires only a basic level of security, users are not required to enroll their device into VMware AirWatch Mobile Device Management. Applications that require a higher level of security are indicated with a lock icon. When the user tries to download an application with a lock icon, the enrollment process is triggered.

The exercises include:

  • Installing and configuring AirWatch Cloud Connector
  • Configuring SAML integration between VMware Identity Manager and Salesforce
  • Integrating VMware AirWatch and VMware Identity Manager
  • Configuring VMware Identity Manager access policies
  • Creating and assigning a VMware AirWatch device profile
