[How-to] Enhance Apple Device Management with Mosyle Manager and AssetSonar Integration


Mosyle Manager is a leading mobile device management (MDM) platform designed for educational institutions and school districts with an Apple-oriented infrastructure. Schools, colleges, and universities leverage Mosyle Manager to streamline the deployment, management, and security of their Apple devices.

For educational institutions, especially the ones that have implemented or are considering 1:1 device programs, Mosyle Manager provides an efficient way to manage, monitor, and secure student devices. 

With this integration, users can effortlessly import details of their Apple devices into AssetSonar, ensuring a unified asset database that is accurate and up-to-date. This integration empowers our customers to seamlessly monitor, manage, and maintain their Apple device inventory, access detailed asset analytics, and enhance device utilization across the institution. It enhances proactive maintenance strategies and improves asset lifecycle management across the education institution, to ensure they can scale at the pace they want to.

1. Benefits of the Mosyle Manager Integration

AssetSonar integrates with Mosyle Manager to allow organizations to automatically sync devices and populate device information from Mosyle Manager to AssetSonar. This enables users to view data from a centralized platform and helps in more accuracy and efficiency while managing devices remotely. Now, IT professionals won’t have to manually enter Apple device information each time a device is deployed. 

Here is how AssetSonar and Mosyle Manager’s integration can bring value to your enterprise and improve your bottom line:

  • Enables IT administrators to manage all their IT assets, including mobile devices, from a single platform. This reduces the complexity of using multiple systems and streamlines management tasks.
  • Mosyle Manager provides robust security measures for Apple devices. Integrating with AssetSonar ensures that asset data is kept secure and that devices comply with organizational security policies.
  • When a device is enrolled, configured, or updated via Mosyle Manager, the changes can automatically reflect in AssetSonar’s records, keeping asset inventories up-to-date without manual intervention.
  • By optimizing device usage and eliminating redundant or unnecessary assets, organizations can save costs. The integration helps identify underutilized resources that can be reallocated or retired.
  • Mosyle Manager can manage and push updates to devices, while AssetSonar can track these activities, ensuring that all assets are up-to-date and reducing the risk of vulnerabilities due to outdated software.
