Mobile Device Management
Managed Lost Mode
If Find My iPhone is turned on, the user who signed into iCloud on the device activate Lost Mode on iCloud.com. Use Lost Mode to lock a missing device, display a message on its screen, and determine its location.
With iOS 9.3 or later, you can also use MDM to place a supervised device into Managed Lost Mode. Managed Lost Mode is a dedicated mode that must be disabled by the administrator before the device can be used again. Like Find My iPhone, an administrator can send messages to the device while the device is in Managed Lost Mode. Unlike Find My iPhone, device location information can only be accessed by the MDM server when Managed Lost Mode is enabled. When enabled, the user won't be able to unlock the device until Managed Lost Mode is turned off and the user is notified if location information was accessed during that time.
Many enterprise applications require users to enter URL, port, email address, and various configurations as part of a one-time setup of an application. These manual configurations can impact the adoption and success of an organization’s mobile app initiatives, increase the burden on a help desk fielding calls from users, and adds the burden of maintaining documentation that needs to be updated frequently as new updates to the application are made available.
By leveraging the native APIs recommended by the AppConfig Community, these configurations can be automatically set remotely by CapaInstaller. This simplifies the setup process for end users and alleviates the help desk and documentation burden.
The communication layer in the CapaInstaller Desktop Management Agent has been improved - which places fewer demands on the network utilization and deployment servers.
Microsoft has made a clear prioritization, and new hardware models are Windows 10 ready and no longer Windows 7 compliant. As Windows 10 becomes the new standard for business, we have added even more features to support seamless deployment using CapaInstaller.
