Enterprise Connect

Seamless AD integration for Mac

Apple Professional Services will help you integrate Mac into your Active Directory (AD) environment — without binding.

Enterprise Connect provides an easy way for your Mac users (whether in the office or in the field) to connect securely to your enterprise services. It re-establishes the single-sign-on trust as soon as a Mac user connects to your network via VPN or wakes from sleep. A customizable audit script verifies Mac compliance with your security requirements.

Enable your Mac users. Easily.

With Enterprise Connect, you can help your Mac users access enterprise resources — without binding the Mac to AD and without users calling IT. Enterprise Connect provides features such as password management, Kerberos support, account management and share management.
