@mgosto Okta Mobility Manager? i thought that was deprecated (or are you using it from before...)

We are currently using OMM with Device Trust, have been using it for maybe 3-4 years. It is depracated but they will still sell it at a big discount, however the MDM features are lacking. We are getting ready to migrate our iOS devices to another MDM but continue to use Device Trust

it was my understanding that Okta stopped selling it (and upgrading it) years ago. they still support it, though, for legacy customers.

but, i could be wrong....

Although Okta may not be selling it anymore, we we have access and Okta support reassured me they’re still supporting it.

@ryan.donnon did you notice that an end user can remove the management profile from a device and the managed account will remain in a managed app like Gmail?

@mgosto yea i think that is true, it checks the first time you try to add the account. unfortunately with mdm unless you use dep for all devices the profile can be removed from the device by the end user. we state that an employee is not allowed to remove it in our employee handbook which they have to sign so if someone did that they would be in breach of their employment agreement

Thanks for the guidance. That's good to know. We'll likely end up doing something similar.

we use to dep the phones we purchased for employees but since the phones remain their property we had a lot of issues with getting everything unenrolled and off dep when employees left (it required a wipe of the phone which a lot of people didnt want to do), so now we only dep laptops which stay with the company so we dont have to worry about removing dep

OMM also doesnt work with DEP

so if you wanted to use DEP youd have to use another MDM that worked with Device Trust

Interesting. Care to share what MDM solution you’re migrating to?

We are on Kandji now (disclaimer we invested in them)

Have been using them for MacOS for maybe 6-8 months now and very happy

They recently released functionality to integrate with Device Trust so will be migrating iOS to them

Thanks I’ll check it out
