The future of Apple Endpoint Software is here and Mosyle is leading the way

Over the past two decades, Apple has seen tremendous growth in enterprise adoption due to its ease of use, advanced security and privacy tools, and the fact that employees prefer to use Macs. With Apple adoption becoming the norm in the enterprise, some organizations may struggle to manage and protect these devices. As a result, IT administrators can struggle with cumbersome, time-consuming workflows and legacy solutions that are not automated or unified.

Mosyle changes that dynamic with a new generation of Apple endpoint software. The company started out as an MDM provider and has quickly grown into an innovator in the Apple device management market. Earlier this year, Mosyle rocked the industry with the introduction of its Apple Unified Platform concept.

The idea behind Mosyle’s Apple Unified Platform It may sound simple: it integrates five critical security and management applications into a single Apple platform. However, it has fundamentally changed the way vendors position themselves competitively in the endpoint solutions market.

Traditionally, B2B IT management providers position themselves in one of the “Unified” categories, such as “Unified Endpoint Management” or “Unified Endpoint Security”. This designation suggests that they provide solutions for all platforms – Apple, Windows, Linux, and others – with a specific focus on one problem, such as device management. But this strategy leaves gaps in the enterprise IT environment because a single solution cannot address the organization’s other needs, such as protection, identity management, patch management, compliance, and more. So IT teams are forced to use various other solutions that support these use cases. In fact, cross-platform solutions make it virtually impossible to deliver quality experience, coverage and performance across all operating systems.

The result? A complicated, generalized technology stack.

As the modern workplace evolves, this traditional approach has had a major impact on business outcomes and the experience of IT administrators. And leaders want change. Mosyle recently surveyed a group of small and medium-sized businesses and found that approximately 70% of organizations prefer a single solution to multiple service providers for security and management support.

Mosyle’s Apple Unified Platform complies with that request. The specialization is around the operating system – in this case Apple. Mosyle’s solutions address the unique needs of that operating system, including MDM, endpoint security, identity management, content filtering, and more. With the Apple Unified Platform approach, an enterprise adopts a single solution that addresses all of its Apple device needs. Reducing the number of carriers needed to cover the entire fleet of devices.

Currently, Mosyle offers the Apple Unified Platform concept through a product built specifically for enterprise environments called Mosyle Fuse. This product contains the following features:

Enterprise mobile device management Identity management Automated patch management Endpoint security, including device hardening and compliance, next-generation antivirus and privilege management Online privacy and security through encrypted DNS-based content filtering

By targeting macOS, iOS, iPadOS, and tvOS, Mosyle delivers a level of efficiency that is unbeatable for multiplatform solutions. But that’s not the only added benefit. The new approach offers:

Easy onboarding with automation

Only IT administrators understand the unique challenge of deploying multiple solutions on endpoints and ensuring they work across all corporate devices. That’s because most endpoint solutions are designed to be deployed and used independently of other solutions; they just don’t work with products from other suppliers. As a result, IT administrators have to take multiple steps on each individual device to ensure that each tool runs smoothly.

Mosyle’s Apple Unified Platform concept eliminates this whole process. With Mosyle’s specialized automation capabilities, IT administrators have nothing to worry about. Mosyle uses its own MDM to natively configure and install apps, while also enforcing content filtering, endpoint security, and much more. This means that when a new employee boots up a brand new Apple device for the first time, they (and the device) are ready to work.

Improved communication with native integration

Another problem with the traditional approach to endpoint solutions is that they are not built to communicate or share data with other endpoint solutions running on the same device. This leads to gaps in security and controls. Often this leads to each solution blocking the other from doing its job and giving the IT admin the challenge of trying to figure out which system is blocking the other, adding manual tasks to a process that is supposed to run smoothly. in an automated way.

Mosyle integrates the different endpoint solutions in one platform and communicates between the different functions. This allows Mosyle to deliver the best performance without delays or unnecessary interruptions.

Cost and time savings

The collaboration of all these separate endpoint solutions is a breakthrough for IT administrators. Not only does it improve device performance, but it also saves IT teams valuable time that can now be used to perform higher-priority tasks for the enterprise.

These impressive performance results show that this concept of an Apple Unified Platform is the way of the future. Businesses can’t afford to go back to the old ways of isolated, multi-platform solutions that struggle to work together. But can they afford this new approach? Yes! Mosyle has proven that an Apple Unified Platform can cost less than one of the five separate independent solutions it currently replaces.
