Why you need Apple support to secure the C-suite

I get it. You’re one of those enterprises that doesn’t (yet) support Apple products among employees, but does that moratorium extend to the C-suite? I’m willing to bet it does not, and that’s why even Windows-only IT shops must learn how to secure Apple’s products.

Ignore the fantasy, this is reality

The reality is that Apple’s products are popular at work. And while there are many businesses that don’t officially support them, one section of civil society that pretty much always does their own thing no matter what are the boys and girls in the C-suite. I can still recall the number of CFOs I spoke with early on in the iPad days who were deeply interested in trying the Apple tablet. Many did. At a time when no one else could.

The rest is history.

That’s a pattern that continues today. Your employees may not be living like the Jetsons at work, but your CEO, CFO, COO and all the other Cs and near-Cs are far more likely to be giving it a go. Which means your corporate data is already on iPhones, iPads and Macs – and it’s not just any old data: This is the most confidential data your company holds – the information your executive teams use to run the business that pays your team’s wages.

That’s a valuable payload, which means those Apple devices are most certainly a target.

Are you protecting them?

What are the biggest threats?

There is a certain irony that one IT support chap I spoke with some years ago said his team didn’t pay attention to securing the CEO’s Mac because they were so much more secure. He seemed upset when I asked why, if that was the case, he was deploying other platforms across the company.

We don’t speak anymore.
