Addigy Launches Cloud-Based MDM for Unified Management of Apple Devices

Addigy, a leading provider of cloud-based Apple MacOS management software, announced seamless support of Apple’s Mobile Device Management (MDM) protocol, making Addigy the first truly Unified Apple Device Management platform for the cloud. Addigy customers can now centrally manage all of their Apple iOS and MacOS devices using a single set of familiar features, reports and dashboards. Addigy’s multi-tenant platform is designed for cloud-based delivery and can be deployed by IT staff or service providers who require productive IT workspaces that are easy to manage and secure.

According to a recent report by Research and Markets, “Due to high security requirements for devices and data, increasing support for BYOD, and the remote management of users and devices, the global mobile device management market is expected to have a CAGR of 25% during the forecast period leading up to 2023. MDM is primarily used by IT companies and industries in order to secure, monitor, and manage their employees' smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.

Addigy’s comprehensive MDM features are a powerful complement to the Company’s MacOS Management software -- now the only solution of its kind with integrated MDM capabilities. Key features include: 

  • Inventory management: Create and manage a database of all mobile devices requiring network access and catalog device properties to simplify management;
  • Policy management: Orchestrate device attributes and manage IT policy enforcement;
  • Mobile Device Security Management: Fully leverage MDM as an essential technology in an organization’s security stack to better secure sensitive information in the field on non-trusted networks, and
  • Device Monitoring and Auditing: Produce date-stamped access logs for accurate insight and compliance monitoring of approved devices.

 

The Addigy MDM solution also includes single application locking for Kiosk, POS, and specialized mobile application needs in the field; critical password management for the highest level of availability; WIFI configuration and cellular data usage, as well as the ability to configure printers, adjust energy saving levels, and lock device screens when appropriate. The comprehensive MDM solution also aggregates asset tracking and provides fast zero-touch provisioning of all Macs and iOS devices.

“Integrating an organization’s mobile strategy with workspace management provides a built-in as opposed to a bolt-on approach which can be beneficial to improving security and IT administration,” said Mark Bowker, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “Addigy is using this strategy to unify iOS-based mobile device and MacOS system management, centralizing the oversight of all Apple devices on the network to streamline Apple device IT.”

“Addigy’s MDM solution addresses important IT challenges, helping organizations to better secure and manage mobile devices without impacting the user experience,” said Jason Dettbarn, CEO for Addigy. “As a result, business leaders will enjoy improved employee productivity while benefitting from the industry’s first true unified management solution for Apple devices.”
