With ManageEngine MDM providing a whole suite of options for iOS device management, there are high chances you might not know what is the most ideal option for enrolling iOS devices. Here, we'll see what are the various options for iOS device management available in MDM.

iOS device enrollment

The two major types of device management are:

Container Management

Ideal for personal devices, whereby you can have full control over the corporate space without managing the personal space. This especially useful for BYOD whereby the IT admins manage the workspace while having zero control over the personal space. Devices can be provisioned under container management when enrolled via Enrollment via invite or Self Enrollment.

Advantages of Container Management
  • Secure corporate resources from unauthorized access
  • Prevent unauthorized data sharing
  • Pre-configure basic settings such as Wi-Fi, E-mail on the device.

Complete Device Management

Ideal for corporate devices, with the organizations getting to exercise full control over the device in addition to all the aforementioned benefits of containerization. This done when the device is enrolled using Apple DEP or Apple Configurator.
