Ensure Mac and Windows Devices Are Compliant
Using these interoperability tools, IT admins can see which devices are not in compliance with the organization’s policies and security standards.
“If you want to take it a one step further, we can even stop that device from accessing corporate data,” Kasparian said. “For instance, we can stop them from accessing email or utilizing any web application that has a single-sign-on utility.”
Businesses can set up conditional access policies that process user data and activity against compliance policies and automatically stop anyone that does not meet the requirements. This can protect companies from employees who click on phishing emails or engage in other risky behavior.

Other software solutions, like Jamf Protect, an endpoint detection and response utility for Apple users, can help IT leaders see if malware is running on any MacOS device. Together with tools such as Microsoft Sentinel, which gathers security logs from the Microsoft side, IT can unlock interoperability for security monitoring.
Additionally, with the integration of Microsoft Sentinel, organizations can access utilities such as remediation playbooks. “Playbooks can set up automation rules to help you triage incidents in Microsoft Sentinel,” Kasparian said. “You can use them to automatically assign incidents to the right personnel, close noisy incidents or known false positives, change their severity, and add tags.”
