Apple Device Enrolment Program (DEP)
The Device Enrolment Program (DEP) is a part of the Apple Deployment Programs (ADP), which help education institutions and businesses easily deploy and configure iOS and macOS devices. DEP provides a fast, streamlined way to deploy organisation-owned iPad and iPhone devices and Mac computers.
Zero-touch configuration for IT
Get your users up and running quickly without having to physically touch or prep devices. By automating Mobile Device Management (MDM) enrolment for large-scale macOS and iOS deployments, your users get the out-of-the-box experience of a new device whilst also having the benefits of automated policy configuration and app assignment over the air.
Mandatory and lockable MDM enrolment
Your macOS and iOS devices can be preconfigured through DEP to require automatic enrolment in MDM. This ensures that all your devices are configured based on your organisation’s specific requirements, and guarantees that all users get those configurations on their devices. You can also lock users’ devices into MDM for ongoing management.
Supervision provides a higher level of device management for corporate-owned macOS and iOS devices. You can wirelessly enable this mode during setup, allowing additional restrictions such as turning off iMessage or AirDrop. Supervision also gives you additional device configurations and features, such as web content filtering and single-app mode.
DEP makes it even easier to set up users on iPad and iPhone. After devices are linked with your MDM server, users are guided through the activation process with the built-in Setup Assistant. You can streamline the setup even further for your users by specifying that certain screens be skipped during the initial device setup.
