Group Policy and Cloud-based Policy Enforcement

Centrify supports the broadest range of centrally enforced user and device policies via Microsoft Group Policy and the cloud-based Centrify Identity Platform. From a single IT console, policies can be defined and enforced for all devices based on type, user role, location and more. Security policies can be applied to Mac, Linux and mobile devices just as they are on Windows. Centrify's Mac policy enforcement automates management via MCX settings, profiles for newer Mac OS X, plist settings, and custom policies to manage other configuration files.

As a complement to its proven, agent-based approach for Group Policy management, Centrify includes a cloud-based option for enforcing policy on Macs that are remote or not connected to the corporate network. To support remote Macs, Centrify leverages Apple’s mobile device support and profile-based management for laptops and devices.
