Mac® Deployment


At Apple, we believe employees can do their best work when they have access to the best tools and technology. All of our products are designed to enable employees to be more creative, productive and work in new ways, whether in the office or on the go. This aligns with how employees want to work in today’s world—with better access to information, frictionless collaboration and sharing, and the freedom to stay connected and work from anywhere.


Setting up and deploying Mac computers in today’s business environment has never been easier. With key services from Apple, in concert with third-party mobile device management (MDM) solution, your organization can easily deploy and support Mac at scale. If your organization has already deployed iOS and iPadOS devices internally, it’s likely that most infrastructure work needed to implement macOS is already complete.


Recent improvements in Mac security, management, and deployment allow an organization to transition from monolithic imaging and traditional directory binding to a seamless provisioning model and deployment process that centers around each user and relies almost exclusively on tools that are built into macOS.


This document provides guidance on everything you need to deploy Mac at scale, from understanding your existing infrastructure to device management and streamlined provisioning.
