A report by Statcounter (November 2015) states that 9.4% of all desktop browsers utilize a Mac OS version. This Mac OS ‘Reporting Parity’ release forms part of an ongoing programme to enhance the Administration experience for our Customers and Managed Services Partners administrating Mac OS devices within their environment. With this release Administrators will have visibility of all devices operating Mac OS, as this release is specifically designed to deliver data on Mac Endpoints in all views, reports, and management screens within the management console.
