About group policy for managing EAS and iOS MDM devices

To manage iOS MDM and EAS devices, you can use the Kaspersky Device Management for iOS management plug-in, which is included in the Kaspersky Security Center distribution kit. Kaspersky Device Management for iOS allows you to create group policies for specifying the configuration settings of iOS MDM and EAS devices without using iPhone® Configuration Utility and the management profile of Exchange ActiveSync.

A group policy for managing EAS and iOS MDM devices provides the administrator with the following options:

A policy for managing EAS and iOS MDM devices is special in that it is assigned to an administration group that includes iOS MDM Server and Exchange ActiveSync Mobile Devices Server (referred to collectively as "Mobile Device Servers"). All settings specified in this policy are first applied to Mobile Device Servers and then to mobile devices managed by such servers. In the case of a hierarchical structure of administration groups, slave Mobile Device Servers receive the policy settings from master Mobile Device Servers and distribute them to mobile devices.

For more details on how to use the group policy for managing EAS and iOS MDM devices in Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console, please refer to the Kaspersky Security for Mobile documentation.
