OnGuard agent on Macs and SSO

    Hi everyone,

    We're introducing OnGuard in our environment and while it's mostly working for us for the Windows 10 machines, we've noticed an interesting behaviour on the Macs.  On Windows, the agent will automatically grab your login credentials so there's little input required from the user.  On Macs though, we're not seeing the agent's login window auto populate with their login credentials.  

    Is this the norm for the Macs or is there some kind of setting that we should look into either in OnGuard or on the Mac?

    Thanks.

    I have not seen such a feature. Moving to client certificate authentication may make it easier for users to authenticate, but I think the MacOS does not expose the credentials used to sign in to the computer. In my experience, if you connect to file-servers, you need to individually authenticate as well, but that may be how I use my Mac.

    Thanks for the response Herman.  Certificates are certainly an interesting option and we'll see if it's something we can use in our environment.  But this would be something that also gets applied to Windows and not just Macs, right?

    Not necessarily, but if you start with it for Macs, it is logical to make the Windows clients more secure in the same effort.
