IBM MaaS360 Integrations Courses:

MaaS360: Configuring the User Visibility module

The User Visibility module manages mobile devices based on your corporate directory structure. With this IBM Security MaaS360® Cloud Extender module, administrators can manage the user devices that belong to specific groups.  They can target apps, policies, and content to the user devices that are members of a specific directory group.

Configuring Verify (Cloud Identity) and ADFS for zero-touch authentication in MaaS360

In this lab, you explore integrating IBM MaaS360, IBM security Verify (Cloud Identity), and Active Directory Federation Service (ADFS).
