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.

[Related: 27 Questions Answered about AirWatch & the Device Enrollment Program from Apple]

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.

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.

Security Update: 8 Advances in End-User Computing from VMware

Employees across enterprise organizations in today&#rsquo;s mobile-cloud world expect simple user experiences to help them be productive. IT often runs into challenges supporting these expectations while keeping their environments secure.

Our team has focused on empowering organizations with an enterprise-secure approach and consumer-simple experience through a digital workspace. Employees can securely access any app, on any device in their own digital workspace provided by VMware Workspace ONE, powered by VMware AirWatch unified endpoint management technology.

Over the course of 2017, we&#rsquo;ve introduced many security capabilities across the Workspace ONE platform, which includes advancements in VMware Horizon 7 and VMware Horizon Cloud. Let&#rsquo;s take a closer look at those security capabilities, as well as existing security integrations and security features that elevate Workspace ONE to the digital workspace platform that organizations can trust.

1. Derived Credentials

Earlier this year, we announced our derived credentials solution as part of Workspace ONE. This was huge news for organizations mandated by certain directives, such as FIPS 201, that require use of smart cards, personal identification verification (PIV) or common access cards (CAC) for access to physical, logical and network resources.

Smart cards, PIV and CAC worked great on desktops and laptops, but the experience on mobile devices was poor and costly because special hardware was needed to read the cards. To help with this issue, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) updated FIPS 201 in 2013 and the following year released SP 800-157, with guidelines on how to generate and utilize alternative tokens, which they refer to as a derived PIV credentials, also commonly referred to as derived credentials or PIV-D. This helped provide better experience, implementation and deployment on mobile devices accessing physical, logical and network resources.

We released our derived credentials app, called VMware PIV-D Manager, that enables the use of derived credentials with native apps and profiles, VMware apps and third-party AirWatch SDK-enabled apps. PIV-D Manager even integrates with other derived credentials solution providers such as Entrust and Intercede.

2. Boxer S/MIME

VMware Boxer, one of our Workspace ONE productivity apps, is an integrated mobile email, calendar and contacts app that helps increase productivity by giving end users a great user experience. Security was a big focus on our Boxer app this year.

We started by enabling S/MIME support for sending and receiving signed and/or encrypted mail. S/MIME is a standard for public key encryption and signing of MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) data that allows for secure email exchange. Organizations have the option of signing an email for authenticity and/or encrypting email messages for an added layer of security.

3. Boxer Classification Markings

In various regulated industries, such as public sector, healthcare and financial, sensitive emails often need to be specifically marked or classified when they are sent and received. When it comes to email, messages typically get a classification appended in the subject line, top or bottom of the body, etc. For example, an email message should be marked &#rsquo;unclassified&#rdquo; or &#rsquo;secret&#rdquo; depending on the content of the email.

Earlier this year, we announced support for classification markings in the Boxer app, which integrates with the built-in Microsoft Exchange transport rules. This capability also integrates with TITUS, Boldon James and janusNET.

4. Boxer Information Rights Management

In addition to S/MIME and classification marking support, we added full support for information rights management (IRM). IRM is a form of data loss prevention (DLP), which can specify access permissions to email messages, including the ability to restrict copy-paste, restrict email forwarding, enforce email message content expiration and more. As you can tell, we put a lot of emphasis on email security through our Boxer app!

5. AirWatch & NSX Integration

AirWatch and NSX integration was introduced over a year ago, and the amount of customer interest in it hasn&#rsquo;t slowed down since. When apps on mobile devices have access to communicate to any resource in the data center, this represents a challenge for IT as the attack surface within the data center can be large.

The AirWatch and NSX integration aims to solve this problem by limiting each mobile app to only communicate to the server that it needs to talk to, using the tunneling capability in AirWatch and the micro-segmentation capability in NSX. Combining these two technologies vastly reduces the access footprint from the mobile device and the attack surface in the data center.

Organizations, like Vallejo Sanitation and Flood Control District, can raise their security posture from the mobile device to the data center using the AirWatch and NSX integration.This type of integration can also help organizations along their journey towards General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance, as data in transit utilizes AES-256 bit encryption.

VMworld 2017 Panel Discussion:

“Data Privacy, theGDPR &the Globalization of Compliance”

Add GRC3109PU via VMworld U.S. schedule builder.

AddGRC3109PE via VMworld Europe schedule builder.

6. Horizon & NSX Integration

We know that apps on mobile devices and data center resources can be tunneled and micro-segmented for an extra layer of security. We can take that same concept and apply it towards desktop virtualization.

Integrating Horizon and NSX, customers can effectively secure east-west traffic within the data center, preventing malware from spreading across the data center if a virtual desktop is compromised because each desktop is effectively isolated from other desktops. IT can quickly and easily administer networking and security policy that dynamically follows end users&#rsquo; virtual desktops and apps across infrastructure, devices and locations. This extra level of security takes desktop virtualization to a whole new level!

“Securing Your Horizon Virtualized Apps & Desktop Investments with NSX”

Add SIE2034BU via VMworld U.S. schedule builder.

Add SIE2034BE via VMworld Europe schedule builder.

7. Just-in-Time Management Platform (JMP)

We introduced JMP earlier this year, our next-generation desktop and application delivery platform, which enables fust-in-time desktops and apps. Imagine a virtual desktop that is created when a user logs in and destroyed when that user logs out. IT can set up a pool of virtual desktops that fits this model, including pools that can access the internet and pools that cannot, effectively creating separation parameters for higher security. Virtual desktops in each pool only get created when a user logs into a specific pool.

With the JMP platform extending across Horizon 7 and Horizon Cloud, IT has the ability to inject apps and user environment settings into the desktop the moment a user logs in. Having pristine desktops created at every login and destroyed at every logoff eliminates malware that the user may have accidentally installed during the session.

8. Smart Policies

Smart Policies are available in Horizon 7 and Horizon Cloud for IT to provide end users with a truly contextual user experience. For example, policies dynamically change depending on the device used or the location services are being accessed from.

True single sign-on (SSO) enables end-to-end authentication from Workspace ONE to Horizon virtual desktops and apps, for a secure and simple user experience. Users aren&#rsquo;t prompted for multiple logins once they&#rsquo;ve authenticated into the Workspace ONE portal. Client policies such as enabling or disabling clipboard redirection, USB, printing and more can be set by IT using Smart Policies. Horizon is certified to meet FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria requirements as a result of the secure policies powered by Smart Policies.

For organizations looking for even more advanced security capabilities across Workspace ONE, look no further than Workspace ONE integrations with our ecosystem of mobile security leaders in the VMware Mobile Security Alliance. Workspace ONE integrates with technologies from our Mobile Threat Defense partners, Cloud Access Security Brokers partners and more to further enable comprehensive cybersecurity across mobile devices, apps, networks and cloud services.

JMP Is Here! See It Live at VMworld

Earlier this year, we introduced our Just-in-Time Management Platform(JMP—we pronounce it “jump”) to blow apart the desktop status quo. It&#rsquo;s evolved into something truly special that will change the way you provision desktops.

Tuesday, 5 p.m., at VMworld U.S.is your first chance to see this game-changing technology. There&#rsquo;ll be beer, cake references and the unstoppable Harry Labana (@harrylabana), vice president of management services and strategy for VMware End-User Computing (EUC).

VMworld 2017 Breakout Session:

Modernize Management with JMP Technologies in VMware Horizon & Take a Look at Where We Are Headed”

Add ADV1608BU via VMworld U.S. schedule builder.

Too Complex. Too Slow. Too Many Breakpoints.

Most of you use a static desktop provisioning model that makes it difficult for you to:

  • Deliver workspaces quickly and efficiently to all users and endpoints.
  • Be agile to end-user requests.
  • Keep up with OS updates and patches (especially with Windows 10).
  • Manage application and OS dependencies.
  • Respond when something goes wrong.

Just-in-Time Delivery

JMP is our answer to those problems. If I were in marketing, I&#rsquo;d sell it to you as “Simple. Fast. Bulletproof.” But I&#rsquo;m not; I&#rsquo;m a product guy. So, instead I&#rsquo;ll tell you that I recognize that you&#rsquo;re currently working too hard, fighting with yesterday&#rsquo;s provisioning tools and struggling with infrastructure that&#rsquo;s beyond its sell-by date. And I want to help.

In a JMP-managed world, you define the desktop workspace that your users want, but leave the building of it to our automation engine. JMP offers a single integrated console that leverages VMware Instant Clone Technology, VMware App Volumes and VMware User Environment Manager to deliver tailored workspaces built from a common gold image.

User-Centric Automation

You identify your users (individuals and groups), tag their desired attributes (policies, apps, infrastructure, etc.) and press go. The JMP engine then automates the creation of bespoke desktops that exactly meet your users&#rsquo; needs. On the device they want.

It&#rsquo;s as simple as it gets.

It gives you more time, flexibility and, oddly, control.

Too Complex. Too Slow. Too Many Breakpoints. Solved.

Going back to how we started this blog, JMP&#rsquo;s dynamic engine gives makes it easy for you to:

  • Deliver workspaces quickly and efficiently to all users and endpoints.
  • Be agile to end-user requests.
  • Keep up with OS updates and patches.
  • Manage application and OS dependencies.
  • Respond when something goes wrong.

Moving from a static to an automated management model gives you numerous benefits. Not least amongst them is the fact that you only consume resources when your users call upon them. No more pre-provisioning. No more downtime for patching. Just-in-time delivery across your entire desktop estate.

Cloud Ready

With JMP automating the actual desktop building, simply changing the target environment for your users can move someone from an on-prem environment to a hybrid or cloud based one. You now have a solution that leverages the infrastructure you&#rsquo;ve built, to deliver the desktops your CTO told you to prepare for.

See for Yourself

We like to say that we&#rsquo;re making managing virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) a piece of cake. Everyone likes cake, right? Join Harry and I at VMworld, and get a sneak peek at the future of JMP—we&#rsquo;ll give you beer and maybe even cake. Possibly even a copy of Fusion 10. You should be there.

Disaster Recovery with VMware NSX-V and Zerto

Note, this is a reposting of the blog that I initially postedhere onhumairahmed.com. In a prior blog, VMware NSX and SRM: Disaster Recovery Overview and Demo, I described and demoed how VMware NSX and SRM with vSphere Replication combined provide for an enhanced disaster recovery (DR) solution. SRM also provides additional integration with NSX when Storage Policy Protection Groups (SPPGs) are used by providing the ability to automate network mappings. One of the great things about the NSX-V platform, is it can be used with any DRorchestration tool that supports the VMware vSphere ESXi hypervisor. Some of the tools customers are using with NSX include VMware SRM, Dell EMC RP4VM, Zerto, and Veeam. As SRM was discussed and demonstrated in a prior blog, Zerto and NSX together is explained in more detail below.

For more details on Disaster Recovery with NSX, make sure to check-out theDisaster Recovery Solutions with NSX [NET1188BU]session at upcoming VMworld 2017 on August 28th. I will discuss DR with NSX and DR Orchestration tools (SRM, RP4VM, and Zerto) in more detail. Justin Giardin from iland will discuss how they use NSX and Zerto to provide DRaaS solutions. Additionally,Ian Allie from Dell EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud (EHC) will discuss how they use NSX and RP4VM to provide DR services for their customers.

Similar to vSphere Replication, Zerto provides the ability to replicate workloads at the VM-level. Zerto Virtual Manager (ZVM) is a standalone manager installed on a Windows workstation. The diagram below shows how ZVM is deployed within the management vCenter domain in a multisite Cross-VC NSX environment.

Figure 1: Example NSX + Zerto DR Deployment

Once ZVM is linked to the respective vCenter, a user can log-on ZVM using vSphere credentials. From the ZVM a Zerto Virtual Replication Appliance (VRA) can be installed on the desired hosts that have VMs that need to be protected.

Figure 2: Deploying Zerto VRAs

In Figure 3, it can be seen that there are four VMs in the Zerto Virtual Protection Group (VPG) being replicated/protected.

Similar to what was shown prior with SRM, Zerto can also ensure when a application or site failure eventoccurs the application(s) are recovered on the same network thanks to NSX logical networks spanning both sites and vCenter domains. In addition to the consistent networking across sites/vCenters, consistent security also exists. Thus, the end result is better recovery time objective (RTO) for applications as the IP address for the application does not need to change and security policies do not have to be manually replicated.

Figure 4 below shows how the default network mapping is configured within ZVM. By default, all workloads will failover to the respective default Failover Network upon actual failover and respective Failover Test Network when testing the Zerto DRplan.

As Figure 5 shows, differentFailover Networks andFailover Test Networks can also be configured for each specific VM.

An extremely valuable capability of leveraging NSX with DR Orchestration tools like SRM, RP4VM, and Zerto is the capability to test the DR plan without any disruption to the production network. NSX enables this by allowing for isolated test logical networks to be created easily with the same IP addressing scheme. The DR orchestration tools can then be configured to use the isolated test networks for realistic DR Plan testing. This is represented in the below diagram using Zerto.
