Displaying the Mac login page with the name and password fields instead of the list of local Mac accounts improves data and device security and complies with the security requirement for CIS (Center for Internet Security) benchmark and other security standards. For hackers, knowing the login name is half the battle. Prompting the user to enter both their username and password makes it twice as hard for unauthorized users to gain access to the system since they must discover two attributes. Centrify enables the ability to manage this setting on the Mac through Active Directory Group Policies.
Step 1. Enable: Computer Confiugration > Policies > Centrify Settings > Mac OS X Settings > Accounts > Set login window settings
Step 2. Select "Name and password" from pulldown list for Display login window as.
The policy will apply after the next group policy interval and logout.
