Important Notice: Banyan is releasing Access Tier v2, which features a guided installation flow and architectural updates. See Important Notices to learn more about the upgrade path from v1 to v2.

Generally Available Features

    • Banyan is introducing Trust Profiles, which apply admin-defined Trust Factors to a specific subset of devices in an org.
    • Trust Factors can be applied to specific groups of devices (based on device serial number, OS, device ownership type, and user group), offering admins granular control over devices’ security posture.
