In order to start managing your mobile devices or Windows 10 desktops with Miradore Online, the devices need to be connected to the service with a process that is known as enrollment. Basically, the device enrollment process means installing an agent or an MDM profile on the device.
Miradore Online supports multiple different device enrollment methods. This article lists which device enrollment methods are available for different device platforms.
The enrollment method that is applicable or most suitable for your needs depends on your devices' operating system versions, your current Miradore Online plan, the level of management that is needed, and also on the ownership of the devices (company-owned vs. employee-owned).
Before you start
The management of iOS devices requires the use of the Apple Push Notification service (APNs). To access the service, an installation of a company-specific certificate is required. Please see here on how to create an Apple Push Certificate.
