How to Add Certificates for Apple TVs?

Apple devices support digital certificates and identities. A digital certificate plays a vital role in identifying the legitimacy of a client or a server across network communications and encrypting the information exchanged between them.
Trusted Certificate Authorities (CA) issue certificates to be used in several ways. Organizations add certificates on employee devices to assure the user’s digital identity and streamline access to corporate resources. Hexnode Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution enables you to install certificates on the devices automatically. Generally, certificates are restricted to specific users and employed for particular usages. Hexnode lets you push the certificates to particular users or devices.
