To reduce the volume of notification displayed to the end-user from our software and ensure all our installed applications have the required permissions, from Mac Monitoring Agent 3.4.0 RC we utilize Apple’s Mobile Device Management (MDM) framework.

To use this functionality, you must first request an Apple Push Notification certificate and upload this to your Dashboard. Once the certificate association is in place, we will prompt the end-user to enroll in our Mac Device Management service and apply the related profile when the Agent updates to version 3.4.0 RC or later.
