On June 19th, Apple released a document describing how loading secure kernel extensions (.kext) would change with High Sierra and how this would impact enterprise customers.
At my current employer, we have been moving from a traditional MDM to a hybrid approach, with a focus on dynamic configuration management and desired state using Chef as the primary mechanism.
Last night I announced that as of AirWatch 9.1, macadmins now have the ability to begin work on custom MDM.
Last month I outlined an upcoming feature for a major MDM vendor. In this time, I have received a lot of amazing feedback, but there have also been some questions that have come up.
For the past five months, I have been working tirelessly on this feature. I must commend this MDM vendor as they are legitimately excited for this new future. I cannot wait for others to try this out and I genuinely hope it will help with their future deployments of macOS.
