What is the Device Enrolment Program (DEP)?
DEP assist businesses and educational institutions to streamline the initial setup of iOS devices and Macs by automating Mobile Device Management (MDM) enrolment and supervision of devices during activation. This enables you to manage the devices without having to touch them.
What are the key benefits of DEP?
Zero-touch MDM enrolment
With the Device Enrolment Program from Apple, institutionally owned devices can unboxed and easily enrolled into MDM without having to go through the traditional enrolment process.
Choose to supervise enrolled iOS devices and unlock advanced control features such as single app mode or web content filtering. Supervision is an iOS-only feature and provides a higher level of device management.
Lockable MDM profiles and Mandatory MDM enrolment
With the Device Enrolment Program, devices are locked into MDM, forced to maintain compliance and thereby further ensuring device security. Mandatory MDM enrolment guarantees that any device activated and in use is enrolled into MDM.
Streamlined Setup Assistant
The built-in Setup Assistant will guide users through the steps of setting up their iPad or Mac, straight from the box. With the Device Enrolment Program, MDM enrolment prompts, during activation, can be tailored to specify only certain screens during setup. Users can get up and running quickly.
