    MDM App Deployment


      Article Summary

      Welcome

      Welcome aboard the MDM App Deployment section at Perimeter 81's Help Center!
      This guide offers you a sneak peek into this category and the must-visit resources.

      The deployment process of Perimeter 81 varies depending on your MDM (Mobile Device Management) provider and is done utilizing a public app deployment process.

      If you are managing the Perimeter 81 client deployment using MDM you should disable the Update client functions in the Perimeter 81 Web Console to prevent looping client installation issues.
