What is apple business manager/ DEP

How apple business manager (DEP) can help you manage your Apple devices
If you have a business that uses Apple devices, such as iPhones, iPads, Macs and Apple TVs, you know how difficult it can be to configure, secure and update them all. You may have to manually set up each device, enter passwords, install apps, apply policies and more. This takes a lot of time and effort, and can also lead to errors and security risks.

Fortunately, there is a better way to manage your Apple devices: apple business manager (DEP). This is a free web portal that lets you register, assign and deploy your Apple devices from one location. You can also manage your apps and accounts, and remotely wipe or lock your devices if they are lost or stolen.

Apple Business Manager (DEP) works seamlessly with your Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution, such as BizMobile Go!, KPN Business or Amac Pro Services. An MDM solution lets you remotely manage, configure and secure your devices through a Web interface or an app. For example, you can set policies, distribute apps, encrypt data, restrict access and much more.

With apple business manager (DEP) and an MDM solution, you can set up your Apple devices automatically and wirelessly, without physically touching them. You can register your devices in bulk with apple business manager (DEP), then assign them to your MDM server. When you take a new device out of the box and turn it on, it is automatically activated and configured according to the settings you specified in your MDM solution. Just log in with your Apple ID or a managed Apple ID, and you're ready to go.

Apple business manager (DEP) also gives you more control and flexibility over your Apple devices. For example, you can choose whether to allow your users to install their own apps, or to allow only the apps you have approved. You can also determine whether you allow your users to wipe or reset their devices, or whether you can only do that yourself. You can also prevent your users from deleting their devices from your MDM solution, so you always have visibility into your inventory

How works DEP?

 In just a few simple steps, you can get started streamlining Mac and iOS deployments using the Device Enrollment Program.

1. Enroll

Create an account by providing basic information about your business including a D‑U‑N‑S number. You’ll also be asked to create a dedicated Apple ID for administering the program.

2. Set Up

Create administrative accounts to manage device enrollments across your business. You can create administrators for the entire company or by department.

3. Configure

Link your account to multiple MDM servers and assign devices by serial number or by order number. And choose to automatically assign all future orders to a default MDM server you designate.

4. Assign

Assign user profiles through your MDM solution. As the user completes Setup Assistant, the device will be automatically enrolled in MDM and configured with the proper settings.
