As of tomorrow macOS Sierra (10.12) will be publicly available for your users to upgrade. Apple has a very high rate of user upgrades since making the upgrades FREE, and we have good reason to worry about the upcoming Sierra release. As we mentioned in Top 13 Reasons to block users from upgrading to macOS Sierra, Apple has dropped certain system calls that have been widely used for a very long time. Some software vendors have made sure to update their software to support Sierra, but Macs are typically a 2nd Class Citizens in business software support.
For many of these reasons, we recommend that you hold back on allowing upgrades to macOS Sierra. Addigy provides the only way to block Sierra upgrades and takes only moments to apply:
On the other end of the spectrum, Addigy highly recommends ensuring your portfolio is upgraded to 10.11 El Capitan. Apple macOS, unfortunately, took the top spot for vulnerabilities in 2015, and Apple security patches are only being applied to El Capitan 10.11… Therefore, it is extremely important that you upgrade your portfolio to 10.11 El Capitan, and hold there until Sierra is stable after public release.
If you would like to use Addigy to block your users from upgrading to Sierra immediately, please use Addigy Today.
Keep I.T. Real,
