ManageEngine promises day one iOS 11 support

ManageEngine, a real-time IT management company, announced that their enterprise mobility management solution, Mobile Device Manager Plus, will support the features released with iOS 11 right from day one.

This will allow IT admins to take full advantage of the features added in iOS 11, including QR code scanning and enhancements to the Classroom app.
 
In terms of managing mobile devices, enterprises spend a large amount of time and resources on device onboarding and troubleshooting.

While there are various methods available to automate these kinds of device management tasks, there is always room to improve by further reducing the amount of time admins and users have to spend configuring devices.

Apple’s latest release of iOS 11, which includes the new screen recorder feature and support for adding any device to the DEP portal, is slated to streamline mobile device management tasks for IT admins.

Mobile Device Manager Plus will support the new iOS 11 features right from launch day for both cloud and on-premises users.

Mathivanan Venkatachalam, ManageEngine director of product management says, “With iOS 11, Apple has released a large number of enhancements that allow us to provide admins with extensive device management capabilities.

“By supporting these features right from day one, we are staying on top of market demands while ensuring enterprises benefit from these enhancements at the earliest.”

Mobile Device Manager Plus will support a number of iOS 11 features, including:

  • QR code scanning: 

Now that the native iOS camera app supports QR code scanning, users can easily enrol their devices in Mobile Device Manager Plus just by scanning a QR code with their smartphone or tablet.

  • Additional security for AirPrint: 

Admins can now prevent users from using iBeacons to automatically detect AirPrint printers.

  • Classroom app permissions: 

Admins can configure Classroom app permissions to automatically allow teachers to take control of students’ devices.

Mobile Device Manager Plus is a web-based mobile device management solution that helps manage a wide range of devices from a central location.

It automates the complete mobile device management lifecycle, from enrolling devices and managing apps, profiles and assets to securing mobile devices.

ManageEngine aims at bringing IT together for teams that need to deliver real-time services and support.
