Apple device management startup Mosyle raises $196 million and launches new platform
Apple Inc.’s device management startup Mosyle Corp. today revealed that it has raised $196 million in new funding and announced the immediate availability of its unified Apple platform.
Insight Partners led Series B, with participation from StepStone Group, Elephant and Album VC. Including the new round, the company has raised over $215 million to date.
Founded in 2012, Mosyle offers device management software designed to streamline device management. The company’s cloud-based software offers monitoring, simplified license management, system reporting and alert notification. Mosyle’s software supports management of iPad, iPhone, Mac and Apple TV devices, enabling technology teams to simplify technology adoption and design workflows.
Mosyle’s new Apple Unified Platform is touted as the first and only solution designed to integrate five mission-critical applications into one Apple-only solution. The solution combines mobile device management, endpoint security, internet privacy and security, identity management, and application management.
Platform MDM for macOS, iOS, and tvOS includes zero-touch deployment support, automated ongoing management, shared device support, bring your own device support, and integrations with Google LLC, Microsoft Corp. and Active Directory from Microsoft.
On the security side, the platform’s endpoint security deploys protection 24/7, regardless of location, ensuring that devices leverage the latest security tools, follow leading cybersecurity standards and adhere to industry compliance mandates. The solution provides native antivirus and malware detection and continuously scans, isolates, locks and wipes infected devices.
The Apple Unified Platform offers an encrypted DNS feature that automates web filtering and encryption on Apple devices. The company says that by focusing on the device rather than the network, customers benefit from fast, secure, and reliable web privacy and security at work or on the go.
Identity management on the platform combines single sign-on features with two-factor authentication to enforce security standardization across all Macs while simplifying how employees use work credentials to authenticate the Macs. Support is provided for Okta Inc., Ping Identity Corp., Microsoft 365, Google Workspace and other services.
Finally, in-platform app management allows organizations to remotely deploy, update, and manage any compatible app on Apple devices, whether or not the app is available on the Apple App Store.
“Over the past year, we have aggressively deployed innovative security and management features that used MDM as a way to extend protection to other layers of the device,” said Alcyr Araujo, founder and CEO of Mosyle, in a statement. “Our new Apple Unified Platform is a direct result of this effort and delivers on our vision to combine cloud-native architecture, automation, usability, and best-in-class customer support for a radically new and entirely integrated management and security of Apple devices.
The company has seen triple-digit revenue growth since 2020, on an undisclosed basis, and has more than 32,000 organizations using its services.
