LATEST – August 2020
KACE Cloud Mobile Device Manager
We are excited to announce our most recent update to KACE Cloud Mobile Device Manager.
In our August release, we’ve added functionality for macOS managed apps and configurations made available with the release of Big Sur (10.16, 11.0). There is also an Android Agent update, which includes a new Active Policy section, new options under Settings, and a new Play store restriction for Android end users.
We’ve also enhanced the user experience with a new Multi-Device Summary view. This view provides data visualization and interactive cards to provide a detailed overview of device inventory that can be quickly filtered.
Existing macOS DEP capabilities that have been made available to BYOD devices include:

Android Agent App
The KACE Cloud MDM Android Agent app now has a new Active Policy view that lets admins and end users see which restrictions are active on the device.
The Unenroll functionality has been moved under Settings. Also under Settings, on fully managed Android devices (7.0+), a bug report can be captured by the admin.
And from the main screen of the Agent app, an inventory report can be manually generated.
With this release, Android users will now be restricted to their Managed Google Play account by default. Apps previously installed by users under their personal account will not be removed from the device, but they will no longer be able to use their personal account in the managed version of the Play store. For devices with a work profile, the personal account outside of the work profile will be unaffected.
For full information, visit Android Fully Managed in documentation.
The new multi-device summary provides data visualization for an entire device inventory, a single device, or a multi-device selection. If no devices have been selected, the data shown represents all devices in inventory. Summaries include device enrollment status, compliance, platforms, and labels.
As filters are updated, the visualization in the right panel is updated. Filter selections can be made in multiple panels as shown below. In the right panel changes can be updated in each section using the filter icons.
