We've just rolled this out to our employees with laptops. I'd love to see integration with it in the future. It works with iOS and Android as well.

Employee joins network with their iPhone. It doesn't allow them to join until the Umbrella client is installed (basically a VPN profile on the iPhone).

We are a K-12 school and are in an identical situation (Aerohive customer and utilizing Umbrella for our 400 students with 1:1 laptops). This would be interesting as an option. I would think that functionality, such as the approach employed by Aerohive for MDM integration (like JAMF), would be a good way to go. Allow the client into a walled garden where they could download the Umbrella client from an internal server.

The bigger question for me (now that 6.0 is here) is if the traffic on these clients is being inspected by Aerohive's DPI. With the link encrypted between the client and Umbrella/OpenDNS I'm guessing that this might interfere with the great new reporting and functionality of HMOL 6.0. Just upgraded my HMOL so I will see soon if this is the case.
