Automate installing the iOS configuration profile
When you use a third-party EMM, you can deploy the iOS configuration profile for Sophos Intercept X for Mobile through the EMM, which automates profile installation for users.
On iPhones and iPads, Sophos Intercept X for Mobile uses a configuration profile to provide web filtering. If you don’t deploy the profile through the Enterprise Mobility Management product (EMM), users must install it when Sophos Intercept X for Mobile enrolls with Sophos Mobile.
- You manage your devices with a third-party EMM. See Use Sophos Intercept X for Mobile with third-party EMM software.
- The third-party EMM supports custom iOS configuration profiles.
