Active Directory-based Identity Management

Centrify provides best-in-class Active Directory support for Macs and Mac users — both on-premises while joined to a domain, and mobile via the Centrify Identity Platform. Once users login with their Active Directory credentials they're granted seamless access to corporate resources and apps, based on IT-defined roles and policies. 

Centrally-controlled Enhanced Security

Bring true enterprise-class security capabilities to Macs in your enterprise. Administrators can centrally manage PKI certificates, 802.1x settings, Wi-Fi security, VPN setup as well as FileVault2 disk encryption. You can further secure your Macs with smart card authentication to Active Directory for compliance with security standards and mandates.

Application Management

Increase end user productivity by ensuring users have immediate access to the applications they need based on their role in the organization. Centrify delivers applications silently right after IT or the end user initiates cloud enrollment of their Mac — regardless of whether the Mac is on the corporate network or in a remote location. Centrally manage all of your Mac applications and assign them based on Active Directory group membership. Ensure applications are only delivered to Macs that meet company security policies.

Inventory and Asset Management

Keep track of all of the Macs and mobile devices in your organization and get the latest system status. Centrify Identity Service ships with a rich set of Mac-specific reports providing a clear summary of the status of all the Macs in your organization — including FileVault 2 status, Mac OS X version, last check-in time, system details, cloud enrollment status and more. Build your own reports leveraging Centrify’s rich SQL based reporting engine and data dictionary.

Group Policy and Cloud-based Policy Enforcement

Get granular control — from within Active Directory or the cloud. Configure Macs to meet security requirements. Control Mac firewall configuration. Manage Internet sharing to prevent Macs from becoming a rogue access points. Deploy login scripts and automount configurations to simplify user access to network shares. Control is back in your hands.

Robust Mac Smart Card Support

Centrify supports CAC, CAC NG, PIV and PIV-I smart card-based login to Active Directory in the same fashion as Windows systems, ensuring strong authentication and single sign-on to other applications and services for Active Directory users.
