To connect iOS devices to a Wi-Fi network:

  1. Open Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud Management Console.
  2. Select the Security managementSecurity profiles section.

    The Security profiles section contains a list of security profiles configured in Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud.

  3. In the list, select the security profile for the devices on which you want to configure access to the Wi-Fi network.
  4. Click the link with the profile name to open the security profile properties window.

    The security profile properties window displays settings available for all devices.

  5. In the iOS group, select the Network settings section.
  6. In the Wi-Fi is not configured section, click Settings.

    A page opens listing Wi-Fi networks.

  7. Click Add.

    A page opens for configuring a Wi-Fi network connection.

  8. In the Service set identifier (SSID) field, specify the name of a wireless network that includes an access point (SSID).
  9. To prevent the Wi-Fi network from appearing on the list of available networks on iOS devices, select the Hidden network check box.

    In this case, to connect to the Wi-Fi network, the user will have to manually enter the network SSID set in the Wi-Fi router settings.

  10. For the device to connect to the Wi-Fi network automatically, select the Automatic connection check box.
  11. In the Security type section, select a security protocol for the wireless network (open or protected with WEP, WPA / WPA2).

    If you have selected the corporate or dynamic network security type in the Security type list, you can select EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol) types in the Protocols section for user authentication in the Wi-Fi network.

  12. Configure device user authentication in the Wi-Fi network if you selected a protected network in the previous step:
    1. In the Authentication section, click the Settings link.

      The Authentication settings window opens.

    2. Enter the credentials for user authentication in the Wi-Fi network.
    3. Click OK.
  13. If necessary, configure the device connection to a proxy server:
    1. In the Proxy server settings section, click the Settings link.

      The Proxy server settings window opens.

    2. Configure the device connection to the proxy server.
    3. Click OK.
  14. Click Save.

    The new Wi-Fi network appears in the list.

After the security profile is applied to the device, the user can connect to the Wi-Fi network that has been added, without specifying the connection settings or by only specifying the SSID if the network is hidden.
