Centrify Corporation has announced that its Centrify User Suite offering supports the just-released Apple iOS 7 operating system for iPhones and iPads, enabling organisations to leverage Centrify’s proven Active Directory-based security service to manage users and devices and address enterprise mobility and BYOD challenges. The Centrify User Suite solution maximizes security and visibility through centralised access management and reporting of enrolled devices and installed applications, allowing IT staff to quickly and securely bring large populations of Apple iOS, Android and Mac devices under management by leveraging existing Active Directory identity infrastructure and skill sets.

With Centrify User Suite, both mobile devices and Macs are integrated into Microsoft Active Directory, leveraging organisations’ existing Active Directory infrastructures, processes and skill sets to deliver enhanced security and centralised management for IT; and secure Single Sign-On (SSO) access for users in the workplace. This unparalleled integration with an organisation’s on-premise Active Directory infrastructure and Group Policy-based management tools makes it easy to enforce and update Mac and mobile security settings. From locking or remotely wiping devices to securing access to email networks and enforcing use of passcodes, the Centrify solution enables administrators to easily assign devices to users and manage the associated properties and settings for each user’s device without the hassle of deploying complex new infrastructure or a separate management console.

“With the wave of mobile devices operating alongside Macs in organisations today, it is imperative that solutions securing these devices support the latest available operating systems versions,” said David McNeely, Centrify senior director of product management. “As an Apple partner, we’ve always endeavored to provide ‘day one’ support of every new operating system release to allow end users to embrace the latest and greatest innovations while enabling the organisation to ensure safe and productive use of Apple devices in the workplace.”
