To maximize the benefits of Apple devices enrolled in Mobile Device Management (MDM), Apple has introduced Apple Business Manager with combined services of the Device Enrollment Program (DEP) and the Volume Purchase Program (VPP) services.

Apple Business Manager's DEP service

Through Apple Business Manager's DEP service, you can perform the following.

  • Install a non-removable MDM profile on a device, preventing end users from being able to delete it.
  • Provision devices in Supervised mode (iOS only). Devices in Supervised mode can access additional security and configuration settings.
  • Enforce an enrollment for all end users.
  • Meet your organization's needs by customizing and streamline the enrollment process.
  • Prevent iCloud back up by disabling users from signing in with their Apple ID when generating a DEP profile.
  • Force OS updates for all end users.

For more information, see the Apple Business Support Portal portal or the Apple Business Manager Guide, or contact your Apple representative.

Note: Integration with any third-party software product is not guaranteed, and is dependent upon the proper functioning of those third-party solutions.
