MacOS Software Deployment

Flexible deployment options allow you to customize all aspects of the software deployment experience. Support for both SCCM Application deployment and package deployment models make macOS application delivery similar to what you already do for Windows PCs. And Parallels Application Portal allows you to provision predefined macOS applications to end users so they can install them on demand.

macOS Image Deployment

Use familiar SCCM Task Sequence steps to capture and deploy macOS base images, applications, and settings to Mac computers.

macOS Patch Management

Manage macOS software updates using the native SCCM functionality that will download updates from Apple into SCCM for further deployment to Mac computers. Flexible patch management options give you more control over how updates are delivered to managed computers.
