Enable safe, secure mobility for your workforce

apple-ecosystem-blogThe Zones Apple Ecosystem

For 30 years, Zones has been the business user’s go-to resource for Apple® innovations.

Today, we’re leveraging our Apple expertise to enable corporations, healthcare facilities, retailers and other businesses to reap the benefits of a new generation of Apple products and become truly mobile organizations.

An Apple business is a connected business. Why? Because easy integration between Apple devices is designed into the Mac OS® and iOS operating systems. People can move easily and intuitively between the Mac Pro® or iMac® on their desktops and their MacBook Pro®, iPad®, and iPhone® without skipping a beat.

Managing the mobile environment

Enterprise mobility management (EMM) and mobile device management (MDM) platforms are essential to deploying a safe and secure mobile environment. MDM is the foundation of a modern EMM solution that allows you to keep employees productive on devices that they love to use, no matter where they’re located.

For IT departments, Zones and our Apple Ecosystem partners help ensure that security and compliance requirements are in place to protect important corporate data no matter the type of mobile device, and regardless of whether they are corporate- or user-owned.

The Zones Apple Ecosystem at-a glance:

Apple

With OS X® and iOS, integration between your Mac® and iOS device has never been better. And OS X and iOS use the same frameworks to enable IT to manage and deploy devices to their employees. IT can easily create profiles to manage user accounts, configure system settings, enforce restrictions, and set password policies — all from the same mobile device management solution that they use today for iPhone® and iPad®.

JAMF

The Casper Suite simplifies the life of system administrators by providing a comprehensive platform to inventory, provision, update, and maintain Mac OS X machines.
