App management Microsoft 365 Apps for macOS devices are now universal apps When you deploy Microsoft 365 Apps for macOS devices from Microsoft Endpoint Manager, it now deploys the new universal versions of the app that runs natively on Apple Silicon Macs. The same deployment will install the x64 versions of the app on Intel Macs running macOS 10.14 and higher. To add Microsoft 365 Apps for macOS, in the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center > Apps > All apps > Add. Select macOS in the App type list under Microsoft 365 Apps. For related information, see Assign Microsoft 365 to macOS devices with Microsoft Intune.
As the mass of information that is transferred and stored online grows every day, so does the desire of undesirables to access it - resulting in the number of data breaches involving endpoints growing at an alarming rate. So although you may believe your business to be protected, it may be time to look again at the security options available to you.
CASE STUDY: Deploying a mobile device for use at a gas-processing facility where any spark could be catastrophic was an interesting challenge for Australian managed mobility vendor, VoicePlus.
VoicePlus IT has deployed the Deputy application to 700 iPads across Australia utilising Microsoft Intune MDM and Apple DEP programs.
VoicePlus has utilised the AirWatch MDM environment and Apple Volume Purchase Program to rapidly deploy Kronos and Aptos apps to over 700 retail stores Australia-wide.
Many enterprises are grossly under-utilising the capabilities of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) and should look beyond smartphones and tablets to enable digital business opportunities, says Gartner.
Microsoft has added 'Android for Work' to its Intune MDM platform with significant benefits for companies with Android fleets, or both BYOD and Corporate-owned devices.
Mobile management has traditionally fallen into the lap of the IT department for many Australian businesses. Yet so many mobility tasks are not really IT… Is outsourcing mobile management the answer for the time-poor IT department?
By the end of 2017 demand for mobile apps will grow at least five times faster than internal IT has capacity to deliver them, predicts Gartner. The need to manage these apps is driving interest in Mobile App Management (MAM) tools.
