Managed OS

AUTHOR: The Kandji Team

 ㅤ   With Managed OS updates for macOS, a much-anticipated release by our customers, Mac admins can now enforce operating system updates across their environment. Consistent and recent OS updates are crucial for following security best practices and meeting compliance standards. Kandji has taken a unique approach to OS management in order to give our customers the best of both worlds: maintain a great user experience while ensuring admins can easily meet compliance standards and follow security best practices. That’s why we’ve created our OS management tool that is built into our platform (no scripting required) and fully enforced. Admins can set up OS management by simply adding the Managed OS item from the Library, as shown below. Managed OS capabilities support both major and minor OS updates (for example, upgrading to macOS Catalina 10.15.4 from macOS Mojave 10.14.0) and can be enforced with an automatic or manual enforcement deadline.
