MAC MDM Management



  • What have you guys used for Apple / OSX MDM management? We have a client who utilise Office 365 for mail and run file storage from a Windows server. When they were starting out Windows were the main OS. However they have had rapid growth and seems more and more common now users are working from MAC and i'd like to apply MDM to them so we can better maintain things...I know Office 365 can do this for Windows but what is recommended for MAC?

    Thoughts welcomed.

    I have used MaaS 360 and Meraki. Otka also has an MDM that also integrates with Office 365.



  • The main one is Jamf. They're probably the top of the line, and the most fully featured. That comes with a cost. If you're willing to take Apple's headaches on yourself you could go down the profile manager path. It is a bit twisty, and it isn't clear how long support will continue for it since it relies on macOS Server.

    There are quite a few options, but none that do both that I am aware of.
