Centrify adds iOS 7 support to User Suite

Allows IT administratiors to manage and secure iOS 7-based devices

Unified identity services provider, Centrify, has added support for the latest version of Apple mobile operating system (OS), iOS 7, to its User Suite product.

Centrify User Suite provides centralised access management and reporting of enrolled devices and installed applications. It is designed to provide IT staff with a quick and secure means of bringing large populations of Apple iOS, Mac, and Android devices under management via Active Directory identity infrastructure.

“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,” Centrify product management senior direction David McNeely said.

“As an Apple partner, we’ve always endeavoured to provide ‘day one’ support of every new OS release to allow end users to embrace the latest innovations while enabling the organisation to ensure safe and productive use of Apple devices in the workplace.”

The added support means mobile devices running the OS are integrated with Microsoft Active Directory, leveraging an organisation’s existing infrastructure, processes and skill sets to deliver enhanced security and centralised management for iOS 7-based devices. This includes single sign-on (SSO) access for employees.

Centrify support for iOS 7 applies to all User Suite editions.

Why is this news? Is there any vendor who did not have that?

What about the major MDM, MAM and MAS vendors that really are $1B companies, not ones with a handful of clients trying to get there via PR wind?
