Parallels Mac Management
for Microsoft SCCM

A plug-in that extends Microsoft SCCM to manage Mac, iPhone and iPad.

View one central inventory of Windows, macOS and iOS—all in Microsoft Endpoint Manager (MEM).


“System Center Configuration Manager is designed for extensibility, and the Parallels Mac Management plug-in was built to help expand and enhance System Center’s management of Mac in enterprise environments.”

Andrew Conway
Sr. Director Product Marketing, Microsoft

Unified Endpoint Management of Windows, Mac, iPhone and iPad in Microsoft SCCM

Enroll and manage Mac endpoints the same way you manage Windows PCs. With added support for managing Apple mobile devices, you need no other solutions or infrastructure to manage all these devices in Microsoft Endpoint Manager.

Full Lifecycle Management of Mac Endpoints

SCCM administrators don’t have to learn much about macOS to manage it—our solution extends the existing SCCM processes and skills. Manage Mac computers and their software discovery, distribution, updates and inventory just like PCs.

Apple Mobile Device Management (MDM)

Enroll iOS and iPad devices in SCCM and secure them with the help of Configuration Profiles without having to use any additional solution for managing mobile devices only. Leverage familiar workflow in the Configuration Manager for creating iOS inventory reports.

Streamlined Processes and Improved Workflow

Without the right tools, Apple computers and mobile devices take up a disproportionate amount of IT support time compared to Windows PCs. Optimize IT resources by administering your entire fleet of devices and applications in a centralized manner.

Designed for Microsoft SCCM Infrastructure

Improve daily IT performance, reducing duplicate work and incident resolution time. Have accurate reporting for hardware and software licenses to make informed business decisions and perform quicker software audits.

Discovery and Enrollment of Mac Devices

Standard SCCM Active Directory System Discovery and support for Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP)—and the unique integration with SCCM—enables administrators to seamlessly set up and provision new Mac computers.

One Central Inventory of Windows PCs and Apple Devices

Have the same view on all devices in one place; different kind of endpoints are just device collections in Microsoft SCCM. Stay focused on managing devices and not enterprise mobility solutions themselves.

macOS and iOS Device Compliance

Enforce compliance on Apple devices via SCCM configuration items and baselines. Configuration items tailored for Mac include macOS configuration profiles, FileVault encryption and shell scripts. Monitor compliance for macOS and iOS via native SCCM reporting.
