Deploy the Atmos Agent using an MDM

You can deploy the Atmos Agent on MacOS and Windows mobile devices using your organization’s Mobile Device Management (MDM) platform.

An MDM enables IT administrators to centrally manage and monitor all their corporate devices, including how applications are pushed out, which applications are allowed on the devices, security settings, logins, and more. With MDM, organizations create profiles to manage their mobile devices. Profiles are a set of instructions, settings, applications, logins, user accounts (SSO and identity management) and security protocols that you can push to a mobile device.

Prerequisites

Windows

Download the Atmos Agent MSI file from the Management Console at Settings > Enrolled clients > Download Atmos Agent button > Download for Windows.
