Managing Macs at Work

Joshua Wood Joshua Wood Profile: Joshua Wood

Hi all, managing your mobile work force is tough, difficult, tricky always changing and never ever as easy as management thinks it should be. Now add Macs to the mix. With the introduction of the iPhone, iPod and iPad along with the series of desktops, laptops and netbook style devices they have their growing in popularity. Their flashy trendy cases and eye candy OS make them tough to keep away from for execs and other management. So how do you manage them with the ease that you do your PCs now?

One option that I have seen deployed is Centrify Suite for Mac OS X. The feature list is pretty nice and it ties into your current AD/OU strategy like you would expect a PC. They can even force password policies and turn on the firewall. It isn’t as fully featured as the support for a standard Windows 7 PC but it is a darn good start. Check it out.
