Apple’s Rapid Security Response lets you manage your macOS and iOS devices by automatically installing new Rapid Security Response updates as they become available. If you allow the updates to be installed, you can also prevent users from removing the installed updates. Alternatively, you can disable Rapid Security Responses so that updates are not automatically installed.
JumpCloud provides two policies to configure Rapid Security Response:
- Mac Rapid Security Response – For macOS devices running macOS 13 Ventura and later.
- iOS Rapid Security Response – For supervised iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 and later.
For more details, see Rapid Security Responses on Apple Devices.
