While it might be desirable to standardize end users on one or two types of devices that all run the same operating system, most organizations don’t have that luxury. Today’s users demand an extraordinary level of flexibility and convenience—which means most organizations support a vast assortment of endpoints, including laptops and desktops (both PCs and Macs), tablets and hybrid devices, smartphones, and even wearables and IoT devices.

The Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmark for macOS is widely regarded as a comprehensive checklist for organizations to follow to secure their Macs. This white paper from Jamf—the Apple Management Experts—will show you how to best implement the independent organizations’ recommendations
"When contemplating offering Macs to your workforce, the question of cost inevitably comes up. “Macs are great, but I can buy two PCs for the same price as one Mac,” is a common mentality within IT departments.
However, when comparing the total cost of ownership associated with providing basic services, software, management and support, the outcome (surprising to some) favors Mac over PC. But how can this b

The enterprise landscape has changed dramatically with the influx of millennials — and their preferred devices — into the workforce. As a result, Macs that were once limited to mostly niche usage are now rapidly expanding their enterprise footprint. These devices require the same level of security and oversight that organizations apply to all of their other devices. Otherwise, the risk of leaving Macs either unmanaged or secured by point products creates security gaps that can leave the enterprise open to cyberattacks and compliance violations.
The good news is, MobileIron makes it easy to secure Macs the same way all other devices in the enterprise are managed. No integrations, additional training, or learning curves are involved. The time has come for a modern approach to Mac management that is seamless for end users, improves operational efficiency, and simplifies IT operations across the entire device lifecycle. MobileIron makes it all possible.

Meaning it’s up to you to support a vast assortment of endpoints, including laptops and desktops (both PCs and Macs), tablets and hybrid devices, smartphones, and even the Internet of Things (IoT).
And not only do your users expect support for a wide variety of form factors, but they also require cross-platform support for all major platforms, including iOS and macOS, Android, and Windows.
To complicate the situation further, they run different versions of those platforms—for example, they may run Windows XP SP3, Windows 10, or anything in between.

At a time when organizations are being asked to do more with less, these deployment
changes couldn’t come at a better time. By centralizing Mac provisioning activities in the
cloud and decentralizing the hardware deployment, you can efficiently set up, manage
and re-provision Macs without ever physically touching them.

Today’s threat landscape has forced us, once again, to evolve how we think about and deliver effective security to protect endpoints (PCs, Macs, Linux, mobile devices, etc). Malware today is either on an endpoint or it’s headed there. Advanced malware is dynamic, can compromise environments from an array of attack vectors, take endless form factors, launch attacks over time, and can quickly exfiltrate data from endpoints. Such malware, including polymorphic and environmentally aware malware, is very good at masking itself and evading traditional security tools, which can lead to a breach. As a result, it’s no longer a question of “if” malware can penetrate defenses and get onto endpoints, it’s a question of “when”.

Adding Macs to a Microsoft-based corporate network can be a challenge. This paper will explore how Centrify can quickly and easily provide the necessary tools to allow Macs to be managed in the same way PCs are managed today.
Apple began aligning management profiles in Mac and iOS software years ago so that Macs could be managed alongside iOS devices with mobile device management (MDM). Each macOS update has delivered additional MDM controls, enabling IT to manage more endpoints together. Unified endpoint management brings together traditional client management with a modern enterprise mobility management framework to simplify the management process for IT. This whitepaper summarizes the key challenges of Mac management and outlines considerations and product features to help ensure a successful deployment.
