Understanding macOS Catalina and Jamf Connect

With the announcement of macOS Catalina for on-premises Active Directory users at Apple's 2019 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), we wanted to let customers know that Jamf Connect remains unchanged.

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 Okta, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud credentials.

If you are using on-prem Active Directory, macOS Catalina simply introduces additional functionality — including the ability to automatically authenticate to Active Directory credentials for certain services, such as websites and apps.
