macos vpp app
Deploy Apple VPP Apps for macOS using Task Bundles. We can do this for mobile devices, but still need to use other MDM tools for macOS in order to achieve this.
Sophos Mobile 9.0 will add support for .PKG files as apps, which can be installed. This might allow you to install the required VPN app.
Is there any specific format requested to be supported?

We released support to install macOS VPP apps with Sophos Mobile 8.5. Have you used this version?
In addition .PKG support comes with Sophos Mobile 9.0
Best regards, Thomas

Thanks for the update.
This request concerns Apple VPP (Volume Purchase Program) Apps for macOS devices. Deployment of Apple VPP Apps for iOS is supported by Sophos Mobile, but not for macOS, despite that it uses the same licensing mechanism.
We've had to move away from Sophos Mobile and use a competitor's product, and haven't been able to move customers to Sophos Mobile as this is a requirement (and is supported by many competitors already, and has been for some time).
Hope this clarifies the issue.
