Does Apple Business Manager require MDM?

Apple Business Manager is an online portal that helps configure and deploy Apple devices to enterprises through a central console.

Although it may be beneficial, you do not necessarily require Apple Business Manager to integrate with an MDM server. It is possible to configure and manage Apple devices manually using just the ABM portal. However, with an MDM server integrated, enterprises can streamline the deployment of Apple devices and simplify the licensing and distribution of Apps and Books to endpoints.

For instance, rather than manually enrolling and configuring devices, your enterprise can utilize Apple Business Manager with Hexnode to effortlessly enroll devices in bulk to your MDM portal.

With Hexnode, it becomes easier to purchase, distribute and revoke app licenses to the devices and users managed by your enterprise. Hexnode UEM opens up additional options to secure and manage Apple endpoints with remote actions, location tracking policies, advanced restrictions, and much more.
