Despite offering unmatched functionality, Defendpoint starts simple and stays simple. Policy rules are flexible enough to meet the most complex business and security requirements while remaining easy to understand how they will affect outcomes for any user in any role.
Powerful: achieve least privilege for Mac
While most Mac users typically use admin accounts, Defendpoint allows you to remove admin rights while still giving users the flexibility they need to do their jobs. Assign privileges to the applications, tasks, and scripts required rather than to the individual.
Customizable: messaging tailored to your organization
Working seamlessly with macOS, Defendpoint for Mac suppresses standard, restrictive messages and allows you to create your own customized authorization prompts to handle exceptions and enable users to request access.
Advanced: Sudo control for command line tasks
Empower advanced Mac users who need Sudo to perform privileged command line tasks. Whitelist or blacklist the use of the Sudo command line or in scripts to prevent misuse and audit all use of Sudo to see who is using it and what they are doing with it.
Compliance: least privilege is required for many mandates
Implementation of a least privilege environment with endpoints is essential to address the constantly moving target of compliance. Eliminating admin rights reduces risk and simplifies your approach to compliance.
