Parallels Mac Management 8.5 for Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager Adds Free iPad and iPhone Management to Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) for Windows Server until the End of 2020
BELLEVUE, Wash., June 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Parallels today released Parallels® Mac Management 8.5 (parallels.com/mac-management) for Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (formerly known as Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager or SCCM). Version 8.5 adds the ability for enterprises to manage iPad and iPhone mobile devices at no cost until the end of 2020 in addition to the Mac device management features it already brings to Microsoft SCCM. It is the only solution that enables SCCM management and central inventory of all Apple devices—along with Windows devices—through the Microsoft SCCM control panel, eliminating the need for a separate expensive infrastructure and resources to manage Apple devices.
Parallels Mac Management supports mobile device management (MDM) on Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) for improved security, stability and scalability. Administrators can now also deploy the Parallels MDM server and internet-based client management (IBCM) proxy on one host in the demilitarized zone (DMZ) for streamlined efficiency.
“As Microsoft SCCM and Endpoint Configuration Manager continue to evolve, IT managers need tools to properly integrate management of all devices—Mac, iPad, iPhone and PC—securely and cost-effectively on one infrastructure,” said Nick Dobrovolskiy, Senior Vice President of Engineering and Support at Parallels. “Parallels Mac Management 8.5 blurs the lines in IT infrastructure management by bringing iPhone, iPad and Mac devices into Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager on premises. IT admins can now easily enroll, manage and secure more devices than ever on one infrastructure.”
