Auto-launch Okta Verify on macOS devices

Currently, when using Chrome, the silent Okta FastPass experience only works if Okta Verify is running. When it's not running, the user will see a Sign in with Okta FastPass button to launch Okta Verify. To make the experience smoother for the end user, you can set Okta Verify as a Login Item through the Apple MDM payload.
