It’s never been so easy to keep everyone on the same page.

The advanced features in macOS Server bring more power, control and collaboration to your organisation. So everyone on your team can work together more effectively.

Profile Manager.

The master multitasker.

Profile Manager simplifies the process of deploying, configuring and managing the Mac computers and iOS devices in your organisation. It’s one place where you control everything. You can create profiles to set up user accounts for mail, calendars, contacts and messages; configure system settings; enforce restrictions; set PIN and password policies; and more. Profile Manager simplifies the distribution of institution-licensed apps and books purchased through the App Store Volume Purchase Program. It also gives users access to a self-service web portal where they can download and install new configuration profiles, as well as clear passcodes and remotely lock or wipe their Mac, iPhone or iPad if it’s lost or stolen. And it allows you to perform push installs of macOS enterprise apps and iOS media assets including PDF, EPUB and iBooks Author files.*

Features for iOS and macOS

macOS Server lets you assign Volume Purchase Program (VPP) apps to devices — instead of a user’s Apple ID. This allows for the installation of VPP apps on iOS devices and Mac computers without configuring an Apple ID or sending an invitation. You can also migrate apps already installed on a device to a user’s Apple ID without deleting the app or user data.

Features for iOS

App Store apps — including newly assigned apps and app updates — can be installed even if the App Store is disabled. And apps configured to use Kerberos will automatically launch per-app VPN when a user logs in to that app. You can enrol iPad and iPhone in the Device Enrolment Program (DEP) and remove the “Move from Android” option. Network usage rules allow each group or company to specify how managed apps use networks — like restricting the app’s ability to connect over cellular or when roaming on other networks. And you can also update DEP-enrolled supervised devices to the latest iOS version.

macOS Server features restrictions for devices to prevent the use of Mail Drop or AirDrop. You can enable restrictions for supervised devices too, like preventing wallpaper changes, device name changes, modification of enterprise app trust settings, access to iCloud Photo Library or keyboard shortcuts, Apple Watch pairing or setting a passcode.

Features for macOS

You can automatically create an administrator account during initial system setup that can be hidden from standard users. Or create a standard account or skip account setup during DEP enrolment; configure the macOS Setup Assistant to create a new standard (non-administrator) account; or skip account creation entirely during DEP enrolment.

Xsan.

Advanced by volumes.

Xsan is a powerful and scalable solution for storage consolidation. Everyone in your organisation can have fast, concurrent access to terabytes of centralised data. Built into macOS, Xsan allows any Mac to access Xsan or StorNext volumes over Fibre Channel or Ethernet.

NetInstall.

Effortless. Across the board.

NetInstall is designed for administrators who manage operating system installations and software updates for their organisations. It’s the perfect IT assistant. It performs automated software installations — whether a new version of macOS, a specific suite of applications for a workgroup or both. It eliminates the expense of distributing software on discs. And it saves administrators from having to configure each system in person.
