Centrify Backs BYOD Initiatives with Day One Support and Interoperability of Apple iOS 7 Operating System -- Centrify Cloud Service for Identity and Access Management of Mac and Mobile Devices Supports Apple's New iOS 7 OS Released Today
 


SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 18, 2013 -- Centrify Corporation, the leader in Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and mobile, today announced that its Centrify User Suite offering supports the just-released Apple iOS 7 operating system for iPhones and iPads, enabling organizations 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 centralized 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 seamlessly integrated into Microsoft Active Directory, leveraging organizations' existing Active Directory infrastructures, processes and skill sets to deliver enhanced security and centralized management for IT; and secure Single Sign-On (SSO) access for users in the workplace. This unparalleled integration with an organization'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 organizations 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 organization to ensure safe and productive use of Apple devices in the workplace."

I think that there are a lot of benefits to a large MDM and SAAS system like Centrify, but I also feel that for some companies/industries, that the new build your own BYOD app concept has some real advantages with compatability, easy of use and flexability. Example, we are looking at developing our own app for our employees and doctors, using the Tigertext Tigerconnect API for HIPAA compliant texting and Dropbox integration, this will allow an increase in security and compliance but not burden the users will a lot of security protocols and restrictions.
