Using Mac’s in your enterprise?

You will want to read this article http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/08/26/mac_osx_lion_security_hole/

This is kind of a big deal, as it underscores that Mac OS X Lion machines simply fail at LDAP, a basic part of enterprise network integration.

In short, if you bring these Macs into your environment, once authenticated, they simply don’t care which password is entered, they simply say “yer in!”…

Those of you who believe Macs are super secure need to rethink that philosophy and accept that there are problems with all OSes that pose a threat.  About a week ago, I posted about a threat that involves a pure Mac server network, without any Microsoft involvement, just as bad as this current LDAP issue, no, actually worse.

If you would like to discuss integration of Macs into your Greenville / Upstate, SC Microsoft Windows environment, please give us a call at 864.990.4748 or email info@homelandsecureit.com…
