Device Enrolment Program
The Device Enrolment Program (DEP) is a part of the Apple Deployment Programs which help Education institutions easily deploy and configure IOS AND OSX devices. DEP provides a fast and streamlined way t deploy organisation-owned iPad and iPhone devices and Mac computers.
The DEP simplifies initial setup by automating Mobile Device Management (MDM) enrolment and supervision of devices during setup, and enabling you to configure the devices without touching them. To further simplify the process, you can skip certain Setup Assistant screens so users can start using their devices straight out of the box.
Zero Touch Configuration
With the DEP, large-scale deployments of iPad, iPhone and Mac are seamless. Once users activate their devices, you can immediately configure account settings, apps and access to IT services over the air. You don’t need to use staging services or physically access each device to complete the setup.
The DEP also makes it easier for users to set up their own iOS devices and Mac computers. Using an MDM solution to configure your devices, users are guided through the activation process with the built-in Setup Assistant. You can streamline the Setup Assistant even further by specifying that certain screens be skipped.
Supervision provides a higher level of device management for institution-owned iOS devices. It allows additional restrictions — such as turning off iMessage, AirDrop or Game Center — and it provides additional device configurations and features, such as web content filtering and single-app mode. With the DEP, you can wirelessly enable supervision mode on a device as part of the setup process.
