VMware AirWatch Announces Same-Day Support for Google Glass Enterprise Edition

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.

Adopt a modern management approach when you deploy Windows 10. Watch Episode 2 of The Redmond Series today to rethink your deployment options and post-deployment configuration. (Plus, jump in the driver&#rsquo;s seat to test drive modern Windows 10 enrollment options.)

&#rsquo;By taking a modern approach to Windows 10, organizations deliver a consumer-like experience. Users take a device out of the box, power it on for the first time and automatically transform the machine to a company device. They do all this without the need to either re-image or IT touching the device, regardless of whether the user is on the corporate network, working from home or working out of a Starbucks on the road.&#rdquo;

THIS is how you get help desk tickets.

Make sure your end users&#rsquo; devices are compliant—and not flagged as non-compliant—when they upgrade to iOS 10.3. Get the critical updates here for app compatibility.

In 2017 alone, Gartner estimates the Internet of Things (IoT) could reach 8.4 billion devices—as ZDNet pointed out, that means IoT could outnumber the global population for the first time this year.

Each of these endpoints, which could be anything from smart glasses to the drill of an oil rig, will not only be able to connect to your corporate network but also generate massive amounts of data. With that data, you could discover insights to improve productivity, automation, agility, the customer experience and your security. In fact, more than half of new business processes and systems could leverage IoT by 2020, according to Gartner.

Clearly, IoT, including wearables, is going to have a big impact on our lives and businesses. How do you prepare?

Unified Endpoint Management for Enterprise Wearables

A single, unified endpoint management (UEM) platform allows your organization to manage and secure any endpoint on any platform across any use case. By combining management tools and processes, your IT organization gains efficiencies, as well as visibility and security across your end-user computing (EUC) environment.

Smart watches, smart glasses, printers, Apple TV, Microsoft Surface Hub—unified endpoint management is capable of managing a range of emerging IoT devices, in addition to your existing fleet of mobile devices and laptop computers. In the U.S., 14 million workers could be using smart glasses alone by 2025, expects Forrester.Your organization not only needs to be able handle that scale, but also the onboarding, security and integration challenges of putting augmented reality to work.

&#rsquo;The true value of wearables lies in the line-of-business and workflow applications that enable operational employees real-time, hands-free access to business-critical information needed to do their jobs. In order to successfully deliver this context-sensitive information at the right time and place, it&#rsquo;s imperative that wearable deployments easily integrate with existing enterprise systems.&#rdquo;
