As we approach the end of 2018’s second quarter, the Addigy team has been working hard to deliver the very best device management experience for Apple available today. Continuously evolving to meet the needs of our users, we’re excited to share a brief update with our community regarding the latest Addigy release available now for all our users.
Advancing Zero-Touch Deployment
Zero-touch deployment for Apple devices should be a natural and intuitive process for both the end-user and device administrator. We have invested a significant amount of time fine-tuning the areas of our platform that support Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP) to provide a more robust and granular zero-touch deployment solution for Apple administrators managing corporate-owned devices. These new features help our users to scale this process efficiently and ensure every end-user has a fully provisioned machine in a timely fashion.
We have enhanced our User Interface to facilitate an easy and intuitive DEP configuration at a policy level. In addition to an updated user interface, we have also made advancements in the core functionality of our integration. Addigy users are now able to skip initial setup options and set them to a default value for a convenient and an expedited onboarding experience. Behind the scene, both local admin and standard accounts can now be created during the DEP enrollment process. To begin leveraging Addigy to configure zero-touch deployment, head to Policies -> select a policy -> Integrations -> Device Enrollment Program (DEP) and complete the steps outlined there. Be sure to learn more about our DEP integration and how you can begin supporting institution-wide deployments with ease.

Product Enhancements, UI Updates, & Bug Fixes
We spent a significant amount of time fine-tuning areas of our platform crucial to our users' experience. To streamline service delivery to a device, Addigy users are now able to start an SSH session to a particular device right from the Devices page. Just head to the Devices page, find the machine to which you would like to connect with SSH, and select the LT icon in the Remote Control column.
Additional product enhancements include resolving smaller issues and bugs to elevate support and service for your Apple device ecosystem continuously.
Privacy By Design
We are proud to announce that Addigy has acquired both the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework certifications. We support all customers that operate in the Europe Economic Area and have made necessary changes to ensure current and ongoing compliance with all EU Data Protection Laws, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that came into effect May 25, 2018. The EU Parliament approved GDPR on April 14, 2016, replacing its previous Directive 95/46/EC, to provide EU Citizens with more protection, visibility, and control over their data. Be sure to read a bit more about Addigy's stance on privacy, our Privacy Shield certifications, and our support for EU data protection.
Take Control Of Your Data
In addition to these recently acquired certifications and our work to maintain compliance with international regulatory frameworks, we have also updated processes and workflows within our tool to ensure our users have more control over their data. Existing users can immediately begin taking control of all personally identifiable information processed by Addigy by heading over to Support -> Users. Once there, users can export their data, delete it entirely, or both.
Export/Delete User Data.
These recent changes reflect our commitment to protecting customer data, maintaining a privacy-first company culture, complying with all relevant regulatory frameworks, and empowering all of our users with the necessary tools to become compliant.
Once again, we would like to give a big thanks to our Addigy users for their continued support. Because of you, we continue striving towards being a little better than we were yesterday.
