Meraki MDM App by CiscoCisco Meraki MDM App

Cisco Meraki Systems Manager provides over-the-air centralized management, diagnostics, and monitoring for the mobile devices managed by your organization — from iPads and Androids to Macs and PCs. Systems Manager monitors each of your organization’s devices, showing useful metrics such as client hardware/software information and recent location, and even lets administrators remotely lock and erase devices.

Systems Manager also makes it easy to define and deploy network settings like wireless connectivity, security settings, and remote VPN access to all devices on your network at once. Instead of manually provisioning devices for network connectivity, or relying on end users to do so, configure settings such as WPA2-Enterprise in the dashboard, and let the cloud push the settings to end-user devices.

Layer 7 client fingerprinting technology integrated into all Cisco Meraki products lets you see all the devices on your network, with no configuration required. Client devices are automatically identified and classified, letting you distinguish between mobile devices, desktop PCs, see device operating systems, and even see device hardware manufacturers.
