Simple to deploy. At any scale.
Apple makes it easy for IT teams to administer devices, manage their configuration, distribute apps and content, and secure corporate data. With Apple Business Manager, devices can be distributed directly to employees and used right out of the box, all without manual configuration. And with flexible deployment models across all Apple platforms, IT can get employees up and running faster than ever with the best tools for the job.
Apple devices have a built-in mobile device management (MDM) framework, making it easy for IT to deploy devices, distribute apps and books, configure settings, and ensure the security of each device. Paired with a third-party MDM tool, IT teams can remotely manage and update devices over the air. And if devices ever go missing, IT teams can remotely and securely erase them.
iOS, iPadOS, tvOS and macOS support flexible security policies and configurations that are easy to enforce and manage. Through them, organisations can protect corporate information and ensure that employees meet enterprise requirements, even if they are using devices they’ve provided themselves — for example, as part of a bring your own device (BYOD) programme
Secure by design.
Apple cares deeply about security — both for the user and for protecting corporate data.
Advanced security is built into Apple products from the ground up, making them secure by design.
And this is done in a way that’s in balance with a great user experience, giving users the freedom to work the way they want.
Secure software requires a foundation of security built into its hardware. That's why Apple devices have security capabilities designed into silicon.
These include custom CPU capabilities that power system security features, as well as additional silicon that’s dedicated to security functions, such as a boot ROM, dedicated AES engines for secure encryption and decryption, and a Secure Enclave.
Building on the unique capabilities of Apple hardware, system security is responsible for controlling access to system resources in Apple devices without compromising usability.
System security encompasses the boot-up process, software updates, and protection of computer system resources such as CPU, memory, disk, software programs and stored data.
Apple devices have encryption features to safeguard user data and enable remote wipe in the case of device theft or loss.
The secure boot chain, system security and app security capabilities all help to verify that only trusted code and apps run on a device.
Apple provides layers of protection to help ensure that apps are free of known malware and haven’t been tampered with.
Additional protections ensure that access from apps to user data is carefully mediated. These security controls provide a stable, secure platform for apps, enabling thousands of developers to deliver hundreds of thousands of apps.
Apple has built a robust set of services to help users get even more utility and productivity out of their devices.
These services provide powerful capabilities for cloud storage, sync, password storage, authentication, payment, messaging, communications and more, all while protecting users’ privacy and the security of their data.
Users must be able to access corporate networks from anywhere in the world, so it’s important to ensure that they are authorised and that their data is protected during transmission.
To accomplish these security objectives, iOS, iPadOS and macOS integrate proven technologies and the latest standards for both Wi-Fi and mobile data network connections.
Compatible with your existing systems.
Apple devices work with most enterprise systems and apps that your company already uses — mail and messaging, network connectivity, file sharing, collaboration and more — giving your employees access to everything they need to do their jobs.
> Connect to your infrastructure
iPhone, iPad and Mac support WPA2 Enterprise to provide secure access to your enterprise Wi-Fi network. With the integration of iOS, macOS and the latest technology from Cisco, businesses everywhere can seamlessly connect to networks, optimise the performance of business-critical apps, and collaborate using voice and video.
> Work with your existing enterprise systems
Apple devices work with key corporate services, including Microsoft Exchange, giving your employees full access to their business email, calendar and contacts across all their Apple devices. Your employees can use the built-in Apple apps, including Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Reminders and Notes, to connect and use Microsoft Outlook on Mac for working with Microsoft Exchange. Popular productivity and collaboration tools like Microsoft Office, Google Workspace, Slack, Cisco Webex and Skype are all available on the App Store and deliver the functionality you know and expect.
> Access all your documents and files
The Files app in iOS and iPadOS lets you access your Box, DropBox, OneDrive and Google Drive files all from one place. Get files directly on your iPhone, iPad or Mac and work on your files seamlessly, across devices, from wherever you are. And Mac offers desktop support for the latest file sync and share technologies, for an intuitive, user-friendly experience.
> Create apps with powerful system integration
With developer tools like Swift, Xcode, and SDKs for iOS, iPadOS and macOS, every business can build amazing apps that connect to your core systems and incorporate powerful device capabilities. Use the built-in camera to scan inventory or overlay design concepts in real environments with augmented reality, or use machine learning to process and analyse large amounts of data.
