With Mac labs being a major presence on university campuses, many IT admins rely on imaging to ensure computers do not fall prey to viruses and costly data breaches, and to provide students with the education resources they need to be successful. The problem is imaging machines is a tedious and manual process, requiring lots of IT time.
In this white paper, we examine a better way to manage a Mac lab and explain how to:
- Leverage Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP) to automatically configure and enroll Mac devices into management
- Make apps and resources readily available for students to use, regardless which computer they choose
- Ensure students only have access to the resources relevant to them by binding machines to your school’s directory services system
