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.

The Reviewer&#rsquo;s Guide for On-Premises VMware Identity Manager 2.9.1 has just been updated.

This updated Reviewer&#rsquo;s Guide describes the newest features of VMware Identity Manager (formerly called Workspace Portal), such as enhanced Microsoft Office access. VMware Identity Manager has long provided conditional access control for any Office 365 clients that use modern authentication. VMware Identity Manager now also includes enhanced conditional access policies for Office 365 clients that use legacy user name and password authentication. These policies increase security and reduce risk of data loss by controlling clients such as native iOS and Android email applications, older versions of Microsoft Office, and email clients such as Thunderbird. This feature works for both managed and unmanaged devices.

In addition to discussion of new features and enhancements, the Reviewer&#rsquo;s Guide includes instructions in the form of illustrated, easy-to-follow exercises that walk you through the setup of a basic deployment. Follow the steps to set up and deploy, and then you can explore the new VMware Identity Manager features at your own pace.

You can find the Reviewer&#rsquo;s Guide for On-Premises VMware Identity Manager 2.9.1, as well as other technical papers, at VMware Technical Papers.

Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for the live event. If you were not able to join live, check out the replay here.

Due to time constraints, we did not get to all of your questions during the live event. We compiled answers to the top 12 questions on the 9.1 release that we missed during the webinar on topics like:

  • Android Enterprise
  • Apple
  • Windows 10
  • VMware Boxer Productivity App

Did we missing the answer to your question? Add it to the comments below, and one of our amazing experts will provide the answer.

AirWatch 9.1 & Android

1. When opening a work app, can we set the Android passcode requirement to only exist if no device passcode is present? It would be nice to avoid a user having to enter an app passcode if they also have a passcode to unlock their device.

The Android operating system (OS) looks at the complexity of the passcode already on the device. If the device passcode set by the end user is of equal or greater complexity than the work security challenge, the end user is not asked to type in a work security challenge. If the device passcode does not meet the required complexity, Android prompts the end user for a passcode to access managed work apps. In other words, the user will have separate passcodes for the device and managed work apps.

2. What is the benefit of using Android work managed rather than the work profile? Do you have to touch each device to set up work managed?

Deploying a work-managed Android device creates a truly corporate device by removing any personal apps or data on the device. This gives the administrator the ability to manage the entire device. A device with a work profile will still have personal apps and data on the device. The admin can only manage the business apps and data.

With the latest enhancements, admins do not need to touch each device to make them work managed. End users can enter afw#airwatch when prompted for a Google account or scan a QR code to begin the onboarding process.

AirWatch 9.1 & Apple

3. Can AirWatch auto-update applications deployed via integration with Apple’s Volume Purchase Program (VPP)?

Yes. We enable automatic updates of VPP applications with device-based license assignments in the device-based method of the managed distribution process. Admins enable AirWatch to automatically query the Apple App Store for updates or manually push updates through the console.

4. Do you need an application to manage Apple TVs?

There is no AirWatch Agent or management application required to manage Apple TVs, but you can enroll tvOS 10.2 via the Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP).

5. For DEP-enabled iOS devices, is there a way to silently publish the AirWatch Agent to be transparent to users’ devices? I would like to avoid users having to download the AirWatch Agent themselves.

Yes, the standard way to publish the AirWatch Agent to DEP devices is by purchasing the application through Apple VPP. Admins then enable the app in the AirWatch console for Device-Based Licensing. Finally, admins auto-assign the app to devices via an assignment group. This will deliver the AirWatch Agent to the device without the need for the user to have an Apple ID.

AirWatch 9.1 & Windows 10

6. Can I use AirWatch to remote wipe laptops running Windows 10?

Yes, you can use AirWatch to remote wipe a laptop device running Windows 10—on or off the corporate network.

7. Do the Windows patching features require VMware Workspace ONE?

Patch management is available in Workspace ONE standard, advanced and enterprise editions. Patching is also available for organizations with traditional AirWatch blue, green and orange suites.

8. Can you manage apps or have a custom store on Windows 10?

Yes, AirWatch provides application management capability across both Windows Store and native Win32 apps. With the Workspace ONE app catalog, admins provision users with a custom enterprise store for self-service and single sign-on (SSO) access to all work apps, including Windows Store, Win32, remote, SaaS and internal web apps.

[Related: What&#rsquo;s New for Windows 10 Management with AirWatch 9.1]

Boxer Productivity App

9. Can you deploy SMIME certificates to Boxer on Android and iOS?

You can deploy SMIME certificates by pushing APIs in AirWatch Console 9.0+. You can also push through the self-service portal, as well as on an as-needed basis through certificate distribution via email attachments.

10. For the Boxer email app, what is the total size limit for emails, including body, headers and attachments?

Boxer does not enforce any size limitations. Exchange configures this on the backend.

11. What systems does the Boxer Classifications Markings approach support?

Our Classification Markings approach integrates with the built-in Exchange transport rules. We can also integrate with Titus, Boldon James and JanusNET.

12. Does Boxer support plain text, signed, encrypted and signed-and-encrypted messages?

Yes, Boxer supports all of these types of messages.

Administrators love the ability to standardize management across any Android device. End users love the separation between work and personal apps.

We wanted to address what early adopters reported so every customer can have the best experience available for an Android device in the enterprise. To achieve this, we worked closely with Google to implement new features for work profile and work managed device solutions.

With the latest capabilities of our last few monthly releases, including AirWatch 9.1, it has never been easier to deploy Android in your organization.

Increase Mobile Adoption & Simplify Device Onboarding

Set up in less time than it takes to make coffee!

It has never been easier to set up AirWatch to deploy Android. AirWatch does all the heavy lifting so you don’t have to. All you need is a Gmail account to act as the administrator and a minute of your time to integrate AirWatch with Android.

The end-user onboarding experience is also simplified. Users authenticate just once to create the work profile. Then, they have access to all the apps and policies they need to get the job done.

Deploying work managed devices? Take advantage of the latest ways to provision them.

Do you need complete management over devices? Do your devices not support near-field communication (NFC)? AirWatch now supports two additional methods of enrollment for work managed devices.

For devices running Android 6.0+, just have your end user type in afw#airwatch when prompted to enter a Google account during device setup. The AirWatch Agent will then download and launch, prompting your end users to authenticate by entering their email address, username and password. By making onboarding part of the device setup wizard, end users or IT can easily onboard work managed devices.

For devices running Android 7.0+, tap the welcome screen six times during device setup. This enables users to scan a QR code that: a) downloads the AirWatch Agent and b) configures the Agent to automatically onboard the device into AirWatch.


Give Users Secure & Simple Access to Work Apps

Simplify app management with Google Play integration.

You can now search and approve apps on Google Play from the AirWatch Console—eliminating the need to navigate to two different places. Your end users will now be able to use Google Play on their device to access their work applications, providing a familiar experience.

Create passcode policies for any app on the Play Store (no SDKs needed!).

It is now possible to set up a separate passcode for work apps—further separating work from personal on the device. This is ideal in bring-your-own-device (BYOD) scenarios where you may not want to enforce a complex device passcode (but still want security as a top priority). Your end users don&#rsquo;t have to enter a complicated password when they want to unlock the device to use their personal Twitter, but will be asked to do so when they launch a work app.

This new device comes packed with features that will delight both consumers and the enterprise.

Here are some features we are especially excited about:

  • Iris scanning and face recognition technology available to unlock your phone. This provides a simple and effective way to keep all your data safe.
  • The world&#rsquo;s first 10nm processor. This fast and powerful processor lets you use your phone at your speed and increases battery efficiency.
  • Your new personal assistant, Bixby. Bixby provides another level of intelligence to your phone and understands multiple forms of communication, including voice, touch, vision and text. Why search for something when Bixby can do it for you?
  • Samsung DeX. This new feature provides a desktop-like experiences for Android and Windows apps, all powered by your phone. To make working on your phone even easier, you can plug it into peripherals, like a keyboard, monitor and mouse.

Usability & Security On the New Galaxy S8 with VMware AirWatch

With all this new technology, end users want and expect to be able to use their latest smartphone for work purposes. The VMware Workspace ONE and VMware Horizon integration give your users access to all the apps—web, native, and virtual—they use to be the most productive from one digital workspace. Users can see all their work apps from a unified location and get to work with a seamless experience on their new Galaxy S8.

The Galaxy S8 comes with the defense-grade security of Samsung Knox, which helps keep your important corporate data safe. If your organization wants additional protection of enterprise data, the Knox Workspace can be deployed through AirWatch, providing a hardware-rooted trusted environment. For personal devices or corporate-owned, personally enabled devices, the Knox Workspace creates a separate container for work apps. In this containerized environment, users&#rsquo; work and personal data do not interact. For corporate-owned and managed devices, the Knox Workspace can be locked into container-only mode, with no personal side of the device and multi-layered security.

We&#rsquo;re looking forward to seeing these devices in action when they are available on April 21.
