Today’s enterprises support an assortment of end-user devices,
including laptops and desktops (both PCs and Macs), tablets and hybrid devices, and, of course, smartphones. Not only do employees use a variety of form factors, but they run a variety of platforms on those devices, including:
• Apple iOS and Apple macOS
• Google Android
• Microsoft Windows
The Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmark for macOS is widely regarded as a comprehensive checklist for organizations to follow to secure their Macs. This white paper from Jamf—the Apple Management Experts—will show you how to best implement the independent organizations’ recommendations

The enterprise landscape has changed dramatically with the influx of millennials — and their preferred devices — into the workforce. As a result, Macs that were once limited to mostly niche usage are now rapidly expanding their enterprise footprint. These devices require the same level of security and oversight that organizations apply to all of their other devices. Otherwise, the risk of leaving Macs either unmanaged or secured by point products creates security gaps that can leave the enterprise open to cyberattacks and compliance violations.
The good news is, MobileIron makes it easy to secure Macs the same way all other devices in the enterprise are managed. No integrations, additional training, or learning curves are involved. The time has come for a modern approach to Mac management that is seamless for end users, improves operational efficiency, and simplifies IT operations across the entire device lifecycle. MobileIron makes it all possible.

Microsoft is ending extended support for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020 and it’s time for companies to make critical technology choices. After nearly a decade, Microsoft will no longer be required to put out security patches or provide support for the Windows 7 operating system (OS).
In 2018, BlackBerry Cylance observed many trends in the threat landscape, such as a decline in overall ransomware attacks, an increase in malicious coinminers, and a marked evolution of popular threats like Emotet. Additionally, overall malware attacks rose by 10% as attackers continue to hone their tools, skills, and tactics to threaten Windows, macOS, and Internet of Things (IoT) platforms.
Read the BlackBerry Cylance 2019 Threat Report to understand these trends in greater depth, and to learn our recommendations to improve your security strategies.

Apple began aligning management profiles in Mac and iOS software years ago so that Macs could be managed alongside iOS devices with mobile device management (MDM). Each macOS update has delivered additional MDM controls, enabling IT to manage more endpoints together. Unified endpoint management brings together traditional client management with a modern enterprise mobility management framework to simplify the management process for IT. This whitepaper summarizes the key challenges of Mac management and outlines considerations and product features to help ensure a successful deployment.
The whispers of “imaging is dead” accompanied macOS High Sierra as Apple introduced Apple File System (APFS) to the Mac. Now, whispers have turned to shouts as macOS Mojave takes yet another step further in rendering imaging a thing of the past.
This white paper examines all things imaging and looks at the reasoning behind the transition, what new provisioning workflows are available to you, and the benefits of adhering to a more modern deployment method.
