Session 3: Mac & iOS Security. Security is a hot topic, ever more so following the events of the last year, for both consumers and corporate users. This session will take a look at the processes available to you and what you should be (and should not) doing in order to create a more secure environment for your clients.
Session 4: Mac & iOS Management. We’ll delve into the world of managing a large Mac & iOS estate, which has become increasingly important topic as more organisations integrate Apple devices into their IT infrastructure. This session will include a thorough discussion on delivering configuration profiles using packages, use of the profiles command, using MCXtoProfile, a quick review of the MDM infrastructure and delivering settings via MDM.

Session 5: OS X Yosemite & iOS 8. We will be discussing the newest, biggest changes to Apple’s latest software, which were announced at Apple’s recent WWDC Keynote, and how they will affect System Administrators in Education and the Enterprise once they are released in the Autumn.
Demo Sessions: Hands on OS X and iOS management solution demos will be available for you to try out throughout the day, plus ample opportunity to get your questions answered by our fully certified team.
Panel to Close. Our panel will spend the closing session answering your questions, based on either the topics discussed during the conference, or from your own current experiences.
