17 July 2024

ID 141784

An iOS MDM profile is a profile that contains the settings for connecting mobile devices running iOS to Kaspersky Security Center. After installation of an iOS MDM profile and synchronization with Kaspersky Security Center, the device becomes a managed device. Mobile devices are managed through the Apple Push Notification service (APNs). For more details on installing an iOS MDM profile and working with APNs, please refer to Kaspersky Security Center Help.

Using an iOS MDM profile, you can do the following:

  • Remotely configure the settings of iOS MDM devices by using group policies.
  • Send device lock and data wipe commands.
  • Remotely install Kaspersky apps and other third-party apps.

An iOS MDM profile can be deployed on mobile devices within the corporate network in several ways. You can use the most suitable deployment scenario for your organization or combine several deployment scenarios.

Before deploying an iOS MDM profile, the administrator must do the following:

  1. Install an iOS MDM Server.
  2. Obtain an Apple Push Notification Service certificate (APNs certificate).
  3. Install an APNs certificate to the iOS MDM Server.

For more details on installing an iOS MDM Server and working with an APNs certificate, please refer to Kaspersky Security Center help.

For details on deploying an iOS MDM profile in Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud, please refer to Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud help.

Deploying an iOS MDM profile via Kaspersky Security Center

Deployment of an iOS MDM profile via Kaspersky Security Center can be carried out by sending messages containing a link to download the iOS MDM profile. Mass mailing is available.

The user installs the iOS MDM profile to a mobile device after receiving the message with a link to the Kaspersky Security Center Web Server. No additional preparations for the iOS MDM profile are required.
