How to deploy the Securly SmartPAC to your MacOS devices via Meraki System Manager?


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

To deploy Securly using Meraki System Manager you would need to undertake the following steps:

  1. Login to Meraki and navigate to Systems Manager > MDM > Settings
  2. Click the '+ Add profile' button and select “Device profile (default)”. Click “Continue”. meraki1.png

  4. Change ‘Profile Removal Policy’ to ‘Require password to remove this profile’ and enter a password. meraki2.png

  11. Click ‘+ Add settings’ and select  ‘macOS System Preferences’.
  12. Uncheck the box next to ‘Network’ and ‘Profiles’. This will prevent users from removing the proxy configuration and the profile. meraki4.png
  13. Click ‘Save’.
  14. Click ‘Save’ again to complete the process.

 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.
