Overall Satisfaction with Centrify Identity Service

As a predominately "Windows" shop, we realized that the Macintosh OS was a sore spot. After much research, I realized that Centrify was a perfect fit as a scalable, easy to use way to reign these devices in. I'm implementing this solution across all lines of business.
  • Allows central "group policy" administration, much like Windows.
  • Easy to use tools and methods of management.
  • Great support staff!
  • Maybe a little more in initial setup assistance.
  • Maybe allow for some central patch compliance reporting.
  • More straight forward logging?
  • Allowed a much more solid support structure.
  • Allowed a stronger corporate enforcement around Macs.
  • Helped us realize some of the security implications that this space creates.
  • jamf and altiris
In my opinion, Centrify has a very specialized purpose and I have not yet seen direct competition.
Any environment with a Macintosh/UNIX population would benefit from this solution if your backbone lies with Microsoft. If the OSX devices under your control number less than a dozen, it may not be necessary but the ability to make large scale changes on these elusive computers is worth a fortune!
