How to deploy Securly to iPads with AirWatch MDM?



You can choose to deploy the Securly solution to your iPads using any of the MDMs such as FileWave, TabPilot, Airwatch etc. We support most of the popular MDM solutions.

To deploy Securly using AirWatch MDM you would need to undertake the following steps:

  1. Login to AirWatch and navigate to Devices > Profiles > Add Profile.
  2. Select ‘Apple iOS’.
  3. Add a Profile name and set the other fields as follows:
    1. Version - 1
    2. Deployment - Managed
    3. Assignment Type - Auto
    4. Allow Removal - Always
    5. Exclusions - No
  4. In the left side menu, scroll down to ‘Global HTTP Proxy’.

  5. Select the Proxy type as ‘Auto’.

  6. Input the PAC file URL provided by Securly in the ‘Proxy PAC File URL’ field.
  7. Check the checkbox for ‘Allow bypassing proxy to access captive networks’.
  8. Navigate to ‘Credentials’ and upload the ‘new_securly_self_signed_cert_exp_20200130.der’ certificate attached at the end of this article.

  9. Click ‘Save & Publish’.  

Later this Fall, Securly's current SSL Certificate will expire. We have provisioned a brand new SSL Certificate available below which expires in 2034. While to get up and running today you only need to have the original SSL Certificate Installed, we recommend that you install both SSL Certificates at the same time to ensure when the original expires, you are at no loss of service.
