Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, today announced that Centrify Identity Services (which includes Application and Endpoint Services) delivers day one support for the just-released iOS11 and day one support for macOS High Sierra for Macs, which according to Apple will release next week on September 25th. This continues Centrify’s long-standing track record of delivering day one support for macOS and iOS releases, enabling organisations to confidently adopt the latest Apple technology and address enterprise mobility and BYOD challenges.
Continuous growth in the adoption of cloud contributes to the increasing desire to access cloud apps from any Apple device — including Macs, iPhones and iPads. Today, the onus is on IT to deliver secure access to applications from any device. Centrify customers can rest assured that as users upgrade to the new iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra releases, Centrify Identity Services will have them covered.
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. Centrify’sMac and mobile management empowers mobile workers, supports BYOD iniatives and provides secure access to cloud, mobile and on-premises apps with integrated Mac, mobile and identity management.
“As Apple continues its rise in the enterprise, Centrify is proud to deliver day one compatibility support for the latest macOS and iOS releases, helping secure access to the boundaryless hybrid enterprise,” said Bill Mann, chief product officer for Centrify. “With users accessing data across a myriad of applications, organisations need to completely rethink their security approach, and move away from a legacy static perimeter-based approach to protecting millions of scattered connections. Centrify’s mobile-centric identity management solutions let organisations realise seamless, context-aware policy across all the applications, endpoints and devices their users prefer — all from a single integrated solution.”
