KACE Cloud Mobile Device Manager
We are excited to announce our most recent updates to KACE Cloud Mobile Device Manager.
In our April release, we are introducing two new features—Always On VPN for iOS and QR Code/COPE Enrollment for Android. We also have an update on enrolling On-Prem Domain-Joined devices using provisioning packages.
- Per-App VPN configuration. Starting in this release, you can configure VPN connections on managed iOS, macOS, and Windows 10 devices so that they are established on a per-app basis. This allows you to have more control over data that goes through VPN. Use this feature to, for example, separate the transfer of personal and business data, while ensuring their integrity. Start by creating per-app VPN mappings in the Library for an existing VPN configuration. Next, apply that configuration to one or more devices, either directly, or through KACE Cloud MDM policies. For details, see Configure VPN app mappings for iOS, macOS, and Windows 10 devices.
- Microsoft Bitlocker for Microsoft Windows 10 devices. Microsoft BitLocker is a disk encryption technology for MS Windows systems. It prevents data from being exposed to unauthorized users by providing encryption for entire volumes. It also helps protect the integrity of data against firmware-level malware. MS BitLocker configurations can be created and managed in KACE Cloud MDM Library, and applied to devices, as applicable. A BitLocker configuration can also be applied to one or more devices using a policy. For details, see Using BitLocker for Windows 10 disk encryption.
- Enrolling on-premise domain-joined Windows 10 devices. You can now enroll and manage on-prem domain-joined Windows 10 devices by creating a Windows provisioning package, and deploying it to managed devices. Windows Configuration Designer is a free tool that allows you to create encrypted provisioning packages. Deploying provisioning packages is easy with the KACE Systems Management Appliance or the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance. Alternatively, run the generated provisioning package on each managed device. For details, see Enrolling on-prem domain-joined devices.
NOTE: KACE Cloud MDM has a new section for viewing Windows 10 device certificate details, including the expiration date. To access it, on the Devices tab, select a Windows 10 device in the Library, and them in the right panel, select Certificates.
