Bootstrap Package Deployment

This feature gives admins the ability to have installer pkgs deployed to devices immediately after enrollment has completed.

Without using Bootstrap, the AirWatch Agent must be installed first, and the Agent handles the installer pkgs (via Product Provisioning). However, sometimes this process can be too slow and happens several minutes after enrollment completes. This could potentially cause problems if the user begins to use the machine before all software and tools are installed & configured. With this feature, Admins can deploy pkgs as soon as technically possible with or without the Agent installed.

This solution allows admins to deploy any distribution packages on MDM enrollment. When used in conjunction with DEP, can be used as a bridge to move from high-touch imaging to a modern management deployment.
