MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Addigy, a leading SaaS-based Apple device management provider serving enterprise IT teams and managed service providers (MSPs), today announced it has received a strategic growth investment from PSG, a leading growth capital firm that partners with software and technology services companies to accelerate their growth.
Over the past two years, use of Mac laptops in the workplace has jumped 63%, and more than half of IT teams report growing demand for Apple devices in their business. With this growing popularity of Apple devices, we believe enterprise IT teams and MSPs are facing unprecedented challenges in securing and scaling Apple devices.

Addigy’s differentiated multi-tenant implementation can enable customers to deliver one of Apple’s highest levels of security and efficiency in scaling operations across multiple organizations, all at within a single interface.
Additionally, Covid-19 has led to a proliferation of work-from-home devices and perimeter-based security vulnerabilities. Consequently, enterprises had to look at endpoint security and, most importantly, identity-based management. In our opinion, Addigy provides one of the most advanced IT management platforms to achieve this by offering one of the highest levels of security, scalability and end user productivity. The company’s MDM and integrated remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform is used by more than 1,500 customers supporting more than 4,000 organizations worldwide.
