Addigy to Feature Cloud-Based Apple Device Management at the 2019 MacTech Conference in Los Angeles
Addigy, a leading provider of cloud-based Apple Device Management software, today announced that the company will highlight its latest generation macOS/iOS management platform at the 2019 MacTech conference in Los Angeles. With 2020 on the horizon and a number of businesses already adopting macOS 10.15 Catalina, Addigy will showcase several new capabilities that allow administrators and users to take full advantage of the new operating system. Additionally, Addigy will discuss new workflows that Catalina presents to IT administrators. 

The MacTech Conference is a major event for Apple IT pros, enterprise, and consultants. This is the event where Apple's announcements of the year-including new operating systems and hardware-meet reality. Educational sessions from speakers around the world will share their knowledge at the 2019 event. And, there will be activities to give computing professionals time with their peers. Finally, attendees will have direct interaction with the most useful vendors, to allow the building of relationships with inside contacts. At this year's event, Addigy will support admins in optimizing their experience with Catalina, with a recently enhanced platform to facilitate the management of business environments.

Catalina is the latest generation operating system from Apple with significant upgrades to end-user privacy and system security. With Catalina, administrators can now create Mac apps from iPad apps and run them natively alongside existing Mac applications so that they can drag and drop content between them. Full advantage can be taken from a larger screen and more powerful macOS architecture to provide a more productive user experience.

Addigy's full-stack cloud-based Apple Device Management platform allows for centralized management of Catalina and iOS 13 computing environments. The solution provides 24x7x365 oversight of Apple devices to ensure systems are secure, up-to-date, and running at the highest levels of efficiency. IT administrators can thoroughly audit their Apple assets quickly, without server setup to identify which OS versions and applications are installed, and whether updates have been applied to all machines on the network. Catalina is a big turning point in the hardening of Apple machines and Addigy's ongoing support is simplifying the large-scale management of these systems.

"32-bit apps will not run on Catalina, and that's a good thing," said John Sutcliffe, Head of Product, Addigy. "32-bit apps are not able to leverage the power and sophistication of 64-bit processors or all the memory available in the equipment. Plus, they cannot take advantage of the new security enhancements that are continually being added to the mac operating system. At the event, Addigy will demonstrate how to simplify the migration to Catalina and make a checklist available to show attendees."

"Addigy is currently in the process of supporting hundreds of business users migrating their macOS systems to the new operating system," said Jason Dettbarn, CEO, Addigy. "Our comprehensive management suite allows users to get the most out of Catalina and we invite MacTech attendees to learn how to get the most out of this new environment."
