Apple devices may be relatively fresh in the enterprise, but they are 100% capable of playing in a Windows world! Throw away preconceptions and learn how modern IT manages Mac and iOS.


Active Directory

Binding Macs to your Active Directory has been possible for many years, but what are the benefits we gain from this practice today? In this talk we openly challenge old school Windows habits that are often used (without question) to manage Macs. Concepts like AD Binding and GPOs will be put on trial and a much more robust solution that involves the Robot Cloud will be presented as the solution for Windows admins who want to successfully “Cross the Chasm” into the Mac Admin world. Target Audience: Enterprise IT Admins, or anyone still using Windows Group Objects to manage Macs. [53 min]


Mac Security

When it comes to securing Macs, we see a lot of outdated practices in use — sometimes, they are completely ignored. In these sessions we share how modern IT teams can meet security and compliance requirements on the Mac. Also listen to this Audio recording (22 min).


Native Deployment

If you're still maintaining images (even just one) to manage your Macs, STOP and watch this presentation to discover a better way.
