A distributed environment introduces unique challenges for the modern Apple IT administrator. One of these challenges is finding efficient ways to ensure that new machines are properly configured, secured, and fully managed without the traditional manual set-up process. Addigy’s Truly Touchless Deployment solution allows IT administrators to accomplish this task quickly and at scale. Many vendors are tackling this problem head-on, but what separates Addigy’s solution from the rest are industry-first features including Spoof-Proof Deployment™, fastest setup in the market, and pre-encrypted disk configuration.
So you’ve deployed all these machines using Apple Business Manager or legacy DEP to your users in the field. They’ve got a new fully provisioned & managed Apple device, the end-user is happy, and your RMM has everything running smoothly on the back-end. However, unknowingly, you’ve just introduced a new vulnerability into your organizational network and may have given malicious actors access to sensitive company information. Since DEP does a simple check against a device’s serial number to assign an MDM server, hackers can spoof a device’s serial number from your organization (via a virtual machine or other methods) and provision the dummy device as a corporate-owned asset. So you’ve just provisioned a hackers’ device with everything they need to be successful…in hacking your network.
Fortunately for Mac Admins everywhere, Addigy has got you covered. Our industry-first solution addresses this little-known, yet wide-spread, vulnerability by ensuring that the end-user authenticates via Active Directory or Okta before any sensitive information gets pushed down to that machine.
“…pushing down a minimal enrollment profile, and then only pushing down sensitive profiles after you do a stronger authentication, should be a clear best practice.”
