Over the past two decades, Apple has seen phenomenal growth in business adoption due to its ease of use, advanced security and privacy tools, and employee preference for using Macs. As Apple's business adoption becomes in the norm, some organizations may find it difficult to manage and secure these devices. As a result, IT administrators can struggle with cumbersome, cumbersome workflows and legacy solutions that aren't automated or unified.

Mosyle is changing that dynamic with a new generation of software for Apple devices. The company started out as an MDM provider and quickly became an innovator in the Apple device management market. Earlier this year, Mosyle revolutionized the industry with the introduction of its Apple Unified Platform concept.

The idea behind Mosyle's Apple Unified Platform may seem simple: it integrates five critical management and security applications on one Apple-only platform. However, it has fundamentally changed how vendors in the endpoint solutions market position themselves competitively.

Traditionally, B2B IT management vendors have positioned themselves in one of the "unified" categories, such as "Unified Endpoint Management" or "Unified Endpoint Security." This designation suggests that they provide solutions across all platforms: Apple, Windows, Linux, and others, with a particular focus on one topic, such as device management. But this strategy leaves gaps in the company's IT environment because a single solution cannot meet other organizational needs, such as protection, identity management, patch management, compliance, etc. Therefore, IT teams are forced to adopt other solutions that support these use cases. Additionally, platform-independent solutions make it nearly impossible to deliver quality experience, coverage, and performance across all operating systems.

The result? A complicated and pervasive technology stack.

As the modern workplace evolves, this traditional approach has had a dramatic impact on business results and the experience of IT administrators. And leaders want change. Mosyle recently surveyed a group of small and midsize businesses and found that approximately 70% of organizations prefer a single solution to multiple service providers for security and management support.

Mosyle's Apple Unified Platform meets that demand. His specialization revolves around the operating system, in this case, Apple. Mosyle's solutions address the unique needs of this operating system, including MDM, endpoint security, identity management, content filtering, and more. With Apple's unified platform approach, a business adopts a single solution that meets all the needs of its Apple devices. Reduce the number of providers needed to cover the entire fleet of devices.

Mosyle currently offers the Apple Unified Platform concept through a product designed specifically for enterprise environments called Mosyle Fuse. This product includes the following features:

  • Enterprise-grade mobile device management
  • identity management
  • Automated patch management
  • Endpoint security, including device hardening and compliance, next-generation antivirus, and privilege management
  • Online privacy and security with DNS-based encrypted content filtering

With a specific focus on macOS, iOS, iPadOS, and tvOS, Mosyle offers an unmatched level of efficiency for cross-platform solutions. But that's not the only added benefit. The new approach provides:

Easy integration through automation

Only IT administrators understand the unique challenge of deploying multiple endpoint solutions and ensuring they work across all enterprise devices. This is because most endpoint solutions are designed to be deployed and used independently of any other solution; they just don't work with other vendors' products. This forces IT administrators to perform multiple steps on each device to ensure that each tool works properly.

Mosyle's Apple Unified Platform concept eliminates this entire process. With Mosyle's specialized automation capabilities, IT administrators don't have to worry about a thing. Mosyle uses its own MDM to natively configure and install apps while enforcing content filtering, endpoint security, and more. This means that when a new employee starts up a new Apple device for the first time, they (and the device) are ready to work.

Improved communication with native integration

Another problem with the traditional approach to endpoint solutions is that they are not designed to communicate or share data with other endpoint solutions running on the same device. This leads to loopholes in security and controls. This often results in each solution preventing the other from doing its job and leaves the IT administrator with the challenge of trying to figure out which system is blocking the other, adding manual tasks to a process that is supposed to be working properly. automated way.

Mosyle integrates the different terminal solutions on a single platform and communicates between the different functions. This allows Mosyle to deliver best-in-class performance without unnecessary delays or interruptions.

saving time and money

The fact that all of these separate endpoint solutions work together is a game changer for IT managers. This not only improves device performance, but also saves IT teams valuable time that can now be used for higher-priority business tasks.

These impressive performance results show that Apple's unified platform concept is the way of the future. Businesses cannot afford to go back to the old way of siled cross-platform solutions struggling to work together. But can they afford this new approach? Yes! Mosyle has shown that a unified platform from Apple can cost less than any of the five stand-alone solutions it currently replaces.
