For information about how to configure your MDM, see your MDM’s documentation.

1. Install the Cisco Security Connector App

  1. On your iOS device, download and install the Cisco Security Connector app.
    Get the Cisco Security Connector app from the App store. Depending on your MDM, you may be able to deploy the Cisco Security Connector to supervised iOS mobile devices through your MDM.

2. Add an Organization Administrator’s Email Address
