[Mac] Require an administrator password to access system-wide preferences

By Centrify Advisor I ‎11-08-2016 12:03 PM

Requiring an administrator password to access system-wide preferences prevent users from changing locked system preferences without an administrator’s password. This setting helps to improve data and device security and complies with the security requirement for CIS (Center for Internet Security) benchmark and other security standards. Centrify enables the ability to manage this setting on the Mac through Active Directory Group Policies.

 

Step 1. Enable: Computer Configuration > Policies > Centrify Settings > Mac OS X Settings > Security & Privacy > Require password to unlock each secure system preference

 The policy will apply after the next group policy interval.
