ABSTRACT:

 


In the previous article in this series, we showed you how to secure a Mac using the functions built into its operating system, OS X.

 

These functions range from simple password protection and patch management through to full-disk encryption.

 

However, these are not the only security functions available. Indeed, OS X has a whole security and management infrastructure available for administrators called Managed Preferences, which can be managed most easily using OS X Server.

 

Capable of running on any Mac that can run OS X 10.8, it is priced at £13.99 for unlimited client connections, so easily affordable.

 

Apple also sells a customised Mac mini desktop computer with improved storage capabilities, which comes with OS X Server installed for small and medium-sized companies, as well as workgroups, which want a dedicated machine.

 

In this article, we’ll show you just a couple of the security features of OS X Server: global password policies and data loss prevention

 

Contents:

           

  •  Configuring Mac OS X Server for the first time
  • Types of user account
