DirectControl does a better job of integrating the Mac experience with Windows than any other solution.
Once confined to a few departments inside the enterprise, Macs are now being adopted from the executive suite down to administrative staff and contractors, driven in large part by their tight integration with Apple's iPhone and iPad. Meanwhile, the maturity of open source platforms such as Ubuntu and Fedora have driven the growth of Linux on the desktop within cost-conscious organizations.
But Microsoft Active Directory remains the foundational infrastructure for organizations large and small. While many platforms have individual utilities for joining systems into Active Directory, IT needs a single, unified solution that also takes advantage of the powerful configuration and security enforcement features of Group Policy.
Centrify for Mac addresses this need by joining Mac systems to your Active Directory domain easily and non-intrusively, enabling centralized authentication and access control. Robust Group Policy support for Mac lets IT use familiar Windows-based tools to manage Macs without advanced domain knowledge.
