Kaspersky Security Center lets you manage mobile devices running iOS. iOS MDM devices are iOS mobile devices that are connected to an iOS MDM Server and managed by an Administration Server.

Mobile devices are connected to an iOS MDM Server through the following steps:

  1. The administrator installs the iOS MDM Server.
  2. The administrator gets an Apple Push Notification Service (APNs) certificate.

    The APNs certificate lets Administration Server connect to the APNs server to send push notifications to iOS MDM devices.

  3. The administrator installs the APNs certificate on the iOS MDM Server.
  4. The administrator creates an iOS MDM profile for the user of the iOS mobile device.

    The iOS MDM profile contains a collection of settings for connecting iOS mobile devices to the Administration Server.

After the iOS MDM profile is installed and the iOS MDM device is synchronized with the Administration Server, the device is displayed in the Mobile devices folder, which is a subfolder of the Mobile Device Management folder in the console tree.
