5 New EMM How-To Guides for AirWatch Admins

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.

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.

We&#rsquo;re excited to announce VMware AirWatch same-day support for iOS 10.3, tvOS 10.2 and macOS 10.12.14. Our customers can find custom profiles to support new features on myAirWatch, and look out for updates to the console in AirWatch 9.1.

iOS 10.3

New management updates from Apple with iOS 10.3 complement the education features introduced with iOS 9.3. This includes a restriction for dictation that will prevent students from dictating answers to questions during an assessment.

To protect devices from unknown Wi-Fi networks, supervised devices will be limited to connecting only with known, whitelisted networks. For supervised devices, new commands will be supported to: restart or shut down a device, play sound on devices in Lost Mode, push operating system (OS) updates over-the-air (OTA) to passcode-locked devices and require certain requests to execute only when tethered to a Mac.

Our applications are compatible with iOS 10.3, including:

  • AirWatch Agent
  • VMware Boxer
  • VMware Browser
  • AirWatch Container
  • VMware Content Locker
  • AirWatch Inbox
  • AirWatch Tunnel
  • AirWatch Video
  • VMware Workspace ONE

The AirWatch Software Development Kit (SDK) and AirWatch App Wrapping engine have also been updated to support iOS 10.3.

tvOS 10.2

The new device management capabilities, app management features and Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP) support will streamline Apple TV use in the enterprise! Admins will be able to protect Apple TV from unknown devices with the option to disable pairing and incoming AirPlay requests, as well as set up Apple TV in conference room display mode. And with Single App Mode for tvOS, Apple TV will be able to be locked into a single internal app, similar to a mobile device in kiosk mode.

More management OTA is possible with the ability to supervise DEP devices OTA, wipe and restart devices, name devices and push a Global HTTP proxy. To deliver applications, admins can also deploy and install internal applications. Now, admins will be able to configure and manage Apple TV like they do iOS devices, allowing tvOS deployments to scale.

macOS 10.12.4

For Mac, new features focused on security help add additional protection to devices and data. For organizations using smart cards for authentication, rules can be configured to limit smart cards to one per user, as well as require smart cards for login and access. Admins can prevent users from using iCloud to back up their desktop and documents, and enable or disable Touch ID for unlocking devices.

AirWatch already supported macOS Sierra on the day of availability, adding new restrictions and more features to support the Device Enrollment Program (DEP). And, a highly requested feature is also included in the release: pre-staged admin accounts for macOS laptops enrolled through the DEP.

Read on to learn more about configuration admin accounts for macOS, and register for our on-demand webinar for a closer look at what&#rsquo;s new for both macOS and iOS in AirWatch 9.0.

Pre-Staged Admin Accounts for macOS

Apple&#rsquo;s macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) brought the capability to stage a local, administrative user account through DEP enrollment (with the option to hide the admin account). In AirWatch 9.0, this feature is supported as part of a staging workflow, via the DEP profile configuration. This allows users to have a non-administrator, user account, while the AirWatch administrator gains a hidden administrator account that can be used for troubleshooting.

To set up a typical workflow, perform the following:

  • Click Devices > Profiles & Resources > Profiles > Add > Add Profile > macOS > Device Profile.
  • Configure a profile with a Directory payload and assign it to assignment groups that will contain your DEP-enrolled devices.
    • This payload binds the macOS device to your directory. Information about this payload can be found in the macOS Platform Guide in MyAirWatch.
  • Click Devices > Device Settings > Apple > Device Enrollment Program.
  • Click Add Profile.
  • In the DEP profile settings, set the following:
    • Authentication: Off
    • Staging Mode [None, Single User or Multi-User]
    • Default Staging User
    • Await Configuration: Enabled
    • Account Setup: Skip
    • Admin Account Creation details (including whether to hide the account)
  • Save the DEP profile.
  • Assign the profile using batch upload or manual assignment in the Enrollment Lifecycle page (per the VMware AirWatch Guide for the Apple DEP on MyAirWatch).

When the device completes enrollment, the device will be bound and allow log-in by Network user accounts (while the administrator account will be pre-staged and hidden).
