New macOS devices can be easily setup by end-users within minutes through Apple DEP enrollment. AirWatch provides powerful, yet easy to use functionality to enable users with straight forward access to intranet resources, but keeping devices secure and compliant with enterprise policies.


VMware Workspace ONE UEM (known as AirWatch) has a rich feature set for macOS device management.

The below video demonstrates initial enrollment of a new device via Apple DEP (only takes bit over two minutes) and the immediate deployment of corporate applications through AirWatch, along with access to the corporate network through VMware per-app VPN.

VMware Workspace ONE UEM (AirWatch) key features for macOS management are

  • End-user self-enrollment of new devices within minutes with Apple DEP and existing device enrollment through web-enrollment or AirWatch Agent
  • Application distribution of internal apps with AirWatch Agent (utilizing built-in Munki open-source libraries)
  • Application distribution without personal AppleID through Apple VPP
  • Access to on-premise resources with Safari intranet browsing and 3rd party per-app VPN support through VMware Tunnel or VMware UAG
  • Setup and monitoring of best practice security baseline (firewall, software update, disk encryption, etc.) and settings distribution (Wifi, e-mail, login items, etc.)
  • Integration with VMware Workspace ONE Identity Manager for SSO access to any app
  • Setup of baseline
  • Automatic compliance checks and remediation actions
