Understanding macOS Big Sur and Jamf Connect

With the announcement of macOS Catalina for on-premises Active Directory users at Apple's 2019 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) and the 2020 release of macOS Big Sur, we wanted to let customers know that Jamf Connect remains unchanged whether you are on either operating system.

Specifically, if you are using cloud identity, all the benefits of Jamf Connect are exactly the same: you will still enjoy seamless sign-on, synced credentials, and enhanced security. With Jamf Connect, an end user can still unbox their Mac, power it on and access all of their corporate applications after signing on with a single set of cloud identity credentials.

If you are using on-prem Active Directly, macOS Big Sur simply carries over the functionality that was introduced in Catalina - including the ability to automatically authenticate to Active Directory credentials for certain services, such asa websites and apps.
