Apple’s rising MacBook business is expected to tip the PC market scales. Noted for their sleek design, stability, and longevity, macOS devices have been substituting conventional enterprise PCs. Furthermore, surviving the 2020 chip shortage, Apple began selling devices powered by homegrown processors. Within a short period, the more extensive deployment of Macs demanded the entry of management solutions. Harmonious with the trend, Hexnode’s integration with MacOnboardingMate (MOM) takes Mac management to new heights.
MacOnboardingMate is a wizard designed to streamline the onboarding of a Mac into a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution while also smoothening the migration process from one MDM to another.
“MacOS is one of our strongest platform bases, and Hexnode offers a wide array of features as an add-on to its already solid security baseline. With Macs being today’s preferred endpoint choice, we believe that our partnership with MacOnboardingMate will assist businesses in their Mac deployment endeavor”, says Sahad M, Chief Technology Officer at Hexnode.
Hexnode UEM brings together a wide range of security solutions under the umbrella. From setting up passcode requirements to dictating advanced feature restrictions, Hexnode offers IT Admins with granular control over their corporate macs. In addition, admins can manage the app repository of devices by blacklisting malicious and unproductive websites. OS updates, FileVault, firewall, and VPN configurations are a few other defence mechanisms Hexnode offers out of the many.
Hexnode’s device enrollment process is carried out by technicians with administrative privileges. With MOM, standard users can be granted administrative privileges, which is essential for the macOS enrollment in Hexnode UEM. Additionally, this elevation in privileges is actively monitored by an autonomous daemon capable of revoking the grant if an interruption is detected. On the other hand, MOM users can copy information based on asset tag, description, department etc., from Hexnode’s device inventory.
“In a landscape centered around mobility where more and more end users are empowered with preparing their Mac, providing the best onboarding experience is critical. And when comes the time to migrate an onboarded Mac to a new MDM solution that better fits the business needs, both end-users and IT Support deserve the same level of attention. Companies implementing MacOnboardingMate with Hexnode MDM can now facilitate those onboarding and migration processes with an affordable and multilingual turnkey solution”, said Franck Sartori, developer of MacOnboardingMate.
While the pandemic pushed corporates to opt for remote work culture, remote onboarding solutions made the transition easier. However, admins must also ensure the security of these onboarded devices. Device management solutions like Hexnode help corporates in securing their distributed device fleet. Hexnode is thrilled to collaborate with Agnosys in making the mission of Mac management easier for our shared clientele.
