When it comes to standardizing configurations for thousands of Mac systems, the process has to be simple and centralized.

When employees use mobile devices to do work, they will store data on them. And, when employees move around with these devices, there is a fair chance a few of the devices will get lost. When an employee reports the loss of a mobile device, you might immediately want to wipe the data stored on it. But a data wipe must be done only after confirming the loss of the device.
