Extending support for macOS

ZuluDesk is proud to announce additional support for macOS. We’ve created brand new applications and features to make ZuluDesk the best MDM for macOS.


ZuluDesk Self Service

Users have different needs, not one setting works for everyone. To help keep things flexible on macOS, we’ve created ZuluDesk Self Service. The tool gives users restricted control over their own devices, allowing them to install applications and profiles on-demand as they need them.

With ZuluDesk Self Service, managing Macs is now easier than ever! Setup printers, manage dock layouts, and more. With the new Self Service tool, teachers can login to Teacher Online with a magic link.

Let’s keep it simple

ZuluDesk Self Service: Allows users to install and remove on-demand apps and profiles. Soon support for downloading on-demand iBooks will be available.

Where’s my Mac: Same as Lost Mode on iOS devices. Allows the device to be locked, with a custom message on screen, with an optional alert sound playing. Can be turned on and off from the ZMS.

Where’s my Mac?

Finding lost macOS devices is now easier than ever. We’ve released a new feature which allows devices to be locked, and optionally play an alert at full volume. Helping missing devices to be restricted until they are returned or found.

Where’s my Mac? can be enabled and disabled from the ZuluDesk Management System.

Deploy Applications

Deliver and install apps through integration with Apple’s Volume Purchase Program (VPP) or by uploading a .pkg file containing any kind of application.

Onboarding Assistant

Coming Soon

Setting up new devices can be a pain, to make this less of a chore we’ve created ZuluDesk Onboarding Assistant. The assistant launches when the user logs in for the first time. The tool displays a list of items being configured, and the status of each item.

With the tool, users can confidently know their device is working as expected, and can follow the progress of the setup.

Additional features

  • Zero-touch

    Automatically enroll and configure new devices without requiring hands-on support from IT. The easiest and most efficient way to do this is by using Apple School Manager or Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP).

  • Directory Binding

    Seamlessly integrate your Macs with Open Directory, Active Directory or another LDAP server by setting up a profile that will bind in a safe and easy way.

  • Create Local Users

    Define local user settings such as the password and account type to enable users to safely login to their Mac.

  • Security & Privacy

    Configure FileVault, Firewall and Gatekeeper settings to protect Macs from downloading apps from unknown sources.

  • Configure the Dock

    Easily configure what the Dock looks like by adding Applications, Web Clips and Folders.
