We are pleased to announce the August 2018 update to KACE
Cloud Mobile Device Manager. This update includes support for paid apps
through Apple’s Volume Purchase Program (VPP) and Google’s Managed
Play Store. In addition, our European customers can now choose to
have their data hosted in our new European Data Center.
use KACE Cloud MDM to manage app licenses purchased through iTunes or the Play
store. For iOS, you can now connect your MDM subscription to Apple’s
Volume Purchase Program (VPP), then assign those licenses to users or devices.
For Android, your MDM subscription was connected to the Managed Play
Store when you created your Managed Play Organization. KACE Cloud MDM now
synchronizes app license information from both sources and lets an
administrator assign and reclaim licenses. This functionality gives the
device administrator full control over the lifecycle of app purchases and
visibility into license allocation.
MDM is now live in Europe. Although our European customers have been able to
purchase the product for some time, their data was stored in a US-based data
center. As of this release, new KACE Cloud MDM subscriptions for European
customers will be automatically provisioned in our European data center,
located in The Netherlands. In addition to the reduced latency, customers
will have peace of mind that corporate and institutional data will remain in
the EU. Note that SMA customers in Europe will need to contact support to
request an update to allow the SMA to talk to the European data center.
