Most organizations have Windows, MacOS and Linux in their environment. Typically many of the security controls that are applied to Windows are not applied to MacOS or Linux, due to the size of the footprint and the difficulty of implementation. This can lead to holes in an organization's overall security posture as well as a poor end user experience.
Recently, Azure AD has released some new functionality to help improve the overall environment security posture for MacOS and Linux, both servers and clients. We'll discuss how these pieces work deep down and some best practices on deploying them.
