Addigy Enhances Apple Device Management with Advanced Compliance Capabilities

Addigy, a leading provider of Apple device management solutions, announced significant advancements in compliance capabilities, further solidifying its position as the only solution offering live, real-time, and continuously connected Apple device management. The new enhancements include extended compliance benchmarks for iOS and iPadOS devices and improved customization options for all Apple devices, providing IT administrators and managed service providers (MSPs) with a powerful, flexible tool to secure Apple devices at any scale.

Strengthening Compliance for Apple Devices

Addigy's latest update focuses on expanding compliance support for Apple’s mobile and tablet operating systems. This includes immediate compliance for macOS, iOS, and iPadOS devices, featuring seamless, one-click deployments of comprehensive benchmarks that meet standards set by the Center for Internet Security (CIS) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The company also announced plans to offer compliance for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) soon.

Bob Gendler from NIST praised Addigy’s innovative approach, stating, “When we developed the macOS Security Compliance Project, we had a vision that vendors could just take the library of rule files and implement them into their product. Addigy was able to see that idea, take it, and build on it in a way to really benefit their customers and the Mac community.”

Enhanced Flexibility and Customization

Addigy’s extended solution now supports Apple’s next-generation mobile device management protocol, Declarative Device Management (DDM). This enhancement allows IT admins to create and enforce multiple compliance policies tailored to specific departmental, user group, and geographic requirements without logging out of the platform. This extreme flexibility ensures that compliance measures are applied efficiently and effectively across varied organizational structures.

Sam Middleton, Head of IT at Bloom & Wild Group, highlighted the practical benefits of Addigy’s tools: “We utilize Addigy compliance tooling to audit and remediate our Apple devices against the NIST and CIS standards. This approach enables us to quickly and effectively understand the risk profiles while minimizing the impact on the employees' experience and productivity.”

Empowering MSPs with Scalable Solutions

The platform’s architecture allows MSPs to modify pre-built policies and manage unique rule sets for individual clients from a single portal. This capability not only enhances service responsiveness but also supports business growth by allowing MSPs to provide high-quality, customized compliance solutions efficiently.

Georg Dauterman, Founder and President of Valiant Technology, noted, “Addigy masterfully simplifies the dual challenges of technical deployment and practical execution for MSPs, enabling them to roll out comprehensive compliance frameworks to multiple customers seamlessly. Its robust platform automates the intricate technical processes, ensuring MSPs can focus on smooth implementation with minimal disruption to end-users.”

Persistent Compliance and Instant Remediation

Addigy’s solution ensures near-continuous device check-ins, which help eliminate compliance gaps and set a new industry standard. The option for auto-remediation across Apple devices allows for instant, non-intrusive fixes, ensuring ongoing compliance and security without disrupting end-user productivity.

Jason Dettbarn, Addigy Founder and CEO, emphasized the importance of these advancements: “More and more businesses are relying on Apple iOS, iPadOS, and macOS devices. IDC expects to see a 20% increase in business use of Macs alone this year. Companies need a sure-fire, efficient, and non-invasive way to ensure device security. Making this possible – and easy – has been Addigy’s mission from day one. Our latest compliance benchmark enhancements deliver the comprehensive coverage they need to keep their growing Apple fleets secure.”

As the use of Apple devices in business continues to rise, Addigy’s enhanced compliance capabilities provide a vital resource for organizations aiming to maintain security and operational efficiency in an increasingly complex digital landscape.
