KACE Cloud Mobile Device Manager

 

Sorry for the delay, we are excited to announce our most recent update to KACE Cloud Mobile Device Manager!


What’s New

In our June release, we’re launching an open beta of Windows 10 functionality, which will allow administrators to manage and secure Windows devices in KACE Cloud MDM. We’re also introducing a new co-managed license that builds upon our Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) strategy. Subscribers can now use both KACE Cloud MDM and KACE Systems Management Appliance (SMA) under a single license.

Our new KACE Cloud Settings functionality lets an admin enable or disable manual enrollments and user password settings—as well as inventory of unmanaged apps on corporate and personal devices.

And as part of our ongoing effort to improve the end user experience, we’re introducing a new Device Details pane available in each individual device’s overview section. Now, when viewing and managing the functional information on a device, you’ll find ownership/assignment, location, device specs, and auto-enrollment status under the Device Details tab—as well as mobile, cellular, network, and security information.

And finally, the Samsung Knox integration for KACE Cloud MDM is now out of beta and available to all users. The integration enables zero-touch enrollment capabilities and additional configuration and restriction options for Samsung devices.

Product / Functionality / Usability

KACE Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) Co-Management License 

The KACE UEM Co-Management license is a new subscription type that allows the use of both SMA and MDM under one license.  Your Windows 10 and macOS devices can be managed traditionally through the SMA and also in a modern management style using KACE Cloud MDM under a single subscription.  Subscriptions and licenses can be managed on the Settings page in KACE Cloud MDM.

  • Enrollment of personal devices on iOS, Android, macOS or Windows.
  • User password settings for reset emails and LDAP defaults.
  • Device inventory of unmanaged apps on corporate or personal devices.


New Device Details Tab

The new Device Details tab contains everything you need to know about enrollment, compliance, ownership/assignment, location, device specs, and auto-enrollment status—as well as mobile, cellular, network, and security information.
