Device Management Requirements for Financial Servi...

Financial services is an interesting business when it comes to what you need to do to meet your regulatory requirements. With so much data and the services that enable you to access data moving to the cloud, it can be hard to keep up with how solutions meet any regulatory requirements you might have. At the end of the day, you’re primarily concerned about customer data leaking out of your environment and making sure that you can report on every single thing that happened in an environment. Whatever help we can provide in this article, make sure that you vet anything against what the individuals that review your regulatory requirements say.

Manage Profiles To Control Settings On iOS Devices...

Enter Apple Configurator 2, a free tool on the Mac App Store. This tool basically fixes most setup challenges for iOS, but does so over USB. This means that Apple Configurator is not necessarily a replacement for MDM. In fact, you can deploy Trust and Entrollment profiles for MDM and automate the MDM enrollment for a device through Apple Configurator 2. Instead, Apple Configurator 2 is a tool that can either help to manage iOS devices during a mass deployment and do so in a manner that is easy enough that you don’t need a firm background in IT to manage devices on a day-to-day basis.
Here is what Apple Configurator can do:

  • Update iOS devices to the latest version of iOS.
  • Rename devices using a numbered scheme (e.g. iPad 1, iPad 2, etc).
  • Erase (wipe) iOS devices.
  • Backup and Restore iOS devices.
  • Deploy profiles/policies (e.g. no Siri for you,... | Read more »

Video conferencing nightmares and how to avoid the...

No matter what industry you’re in, you’ve probably experienced at least a few video conference calls. While these calls require slightly more equipment than audio conferencing, they fill a need for face-to-face time that can’t quite be met without in-person gatherings. In fact, the popularity of video conferencing has exploded in recent years and that is for a number of reasons.
First, video conferencing saves time and money. According to a study by PGi, companies that regularly use video conferencing find a 30 percent dip in the cost of travel overall, which includes hotel, airfare, gas, taxi, car rentals and food stipends. In addition, video conferencing can lead to higher efficiency and productivity—it holds attention longer than a regular call (35 minutes compared with 23 minutes,... | Read more »

The Rising Tide of Mobile Devices in Small Busines...

The articles continue, on this site and others. Just did an article on The Rising Tide of Mobile Devices In Small Business for Re/Code. It’s available here. 

And in case you’re curious, the reason I post a link and clip of them here is so I have all the articles in a central location to go back and reference… I don’t post links to the Bushel ones I write, ’cause they’re already centralized in one place. Although I have considered an auto-slug based on the RSS feed of my author page there… But that’s something I’ll look at one day when I have a little free time…

Apple Configurator has always been able to upgrade devices. But it can also now upgrade apps that are on devices. To run an upgrade, first open Apple Configurator 2.

Once open, right-click on a device and click on the Update… option.

You can update all assets on the device concurrently, using the default option. Here, we’re going to select to update only the items we need to in the drop-down menu.

Select Only Some Apps and then you’ll see a list of each app that needs an upgrade on the device. Check the box for the apps to be updated and then click on the Update button.

Using Apple Configurator 2 Blueprints to Manage iO...

Blueprints are a new option in Apple Configurator 2. Blueprints allow you setup a template of settings, options, apps, and restore data, and then apply those Blueprints on iOS devices. For example, if you have 1,000 iOS devices, you can create a Blueprint with a restore item, an enrollment profile, a default wallpaper, skip all of the activation steps, install 4 apps, and then enabling encrypted backups. The Blueprint will provide all of these features to any device that the Blueprint is applied to.
But then why not call it a group? Why call it a Blueprint? Because the word template is boring. And you’re not dynamically making changes to devices over the air. Instead you’re making changes to devices when you apply that Blueprint, or template to the device. And you’re building a device out based on the items in the Blueprint, so not entirely a template. But whatever on semantics.
To get started, open Apple Configurator 2.

Office 365 Exchange Online Archiving now meets SEC...

In-Place Archiving for Office 365 offers vast amounts of storage for our customers. Our innovative In-Place approach coupled with a seamless archiving experience has significant adoption in the marketplace with several million archive mailboxes being used actively in Office 365 today.
While our existing archiving solution serves most scenarios, some of our customers are subject to industry-specific regulatory requirements about record keeping. For example, financial institutions such as banks and broker-dealer organizations are subject to Rule 17a-4 issued by the Securities and Exchange Commissions (SEC) regarding electronic data storage. Rule 17a-4 has specific requirements pertaining to length, format, quality, availability, accountability and many other aspects of record retention. Whether the archiving solution can support Rule 17a-4 requirements is often a key consideration for SEC-regulated customers in technology adoption.
To help these customers better... | Read more »
