Mac and Mobile Management

Manage Macs as you do PCs while empowering mobile workers with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives. Provide secure access to cloud, mobile and on-premises applications with integrated Mac, mobility and identity management.

What is Mac Management?

Macs are increasing in popularity and creating a shift from historical Windows endpoints to more heterogeneous environments. With traditional directory service infrastructures, access management for Macs has been challenging. Centrify provides a suite of tools to manage Macs with existing Active Directory infrastructure and mobility capabilities from the Centrify Identity Platform.

Why Mac and Mobile Management?

Today’s IT landscape is complex. As more employees rely on mobile devices and Macs for work, companies need to authorize and manage these devices with consistency. Smart Mac and mobile management — including application provisioning, automated device configuration, and self-service enrollment — reduces user frustration, lowers helpdesk calls, and ensures uniform security.
