San Francisco, CA, 14th October 2022: Hexnode UEM, the enterprise software division of Mitsogo Inc., announced the launch of a new feature, Hexnode Gateway (formerly called as Mac Onboarder). This new enrollment method assists IT admins in seamlessly migrating their macOS devices from a previous management solution to Hexnode.

Owing to its improved efficiency, security, and longevity, macOS devices have seen massive deployment within workplaces, paving the way for mobile device management (MDM) solutions. However, companies occasionally outgrow the capabilities of the MDM software in use, necessitating the need for a change. This new feature released by Hexnode aims to smoothen the enrollment procedure for macOS devices, assisting IT in bulk deployment.

The Hexnode Gateway application enables administrators to remotely migrate their entire macOS fleet to Hexnode without having to handle the deployment process manually. The enrollment procedure complements the current authenticated enrolment and ABM/ASM enrollment methods. Before pushing the gateway’s PKG file remotely, admins can configure the application’s settings from the Hexnode portal. Additionally, the app installation process can be automated, eliminating the need to initiate installation manually.

Furthermore, data monitoring and user enrollment features are now available for iOS users. The data monitoring feature benefits IT in keeping tabs on data consumption within the enterprise, preventing a surge in telecom expenses. Admins can set limits and remain notified when the usage limit has been crossed. Benefitting the BYOD users, Hexnode’s user enrollment method automatically creates a separate container and encrypts the data, respecting the user’s privacy and enterprise’s security simultaneously.

“We are planning on expanding our work device capabilities by introducing Hexnode’s suite of enterprise applications,” said Sahad M, Chief Technology Officer at Hexnode, during Hexnode’s third annual user conference, HexCon22. “We also have some updates in mind to build on our application management assemblage,” he continued.

Businesses subscribed to MacOnboardingMate (MOM) from Agnosys shall profit from the integration with Hexnode UEM, which raises the bar for macOS management. The latest feature release comes after Hexnode’s recent announcement of extending support for Android TVs.
