MacVoices #19189: Josh Long of Intego On Malware, Security, Privacy, and Safety Online

Josh Long, Chief Security Analyst for Intego, outlines some security practices that we should all be aware of…and not just using multiple passwords. Josh covers issues such as why you can have malware problems even if you don’t visit questionable web sites, why you might not want to use one of those “free” VPN services, and how to find out if your information has been compromised in any of those highly publicized hacks…and in some of the not-so-publicized hacks.

MacVoices #19186: Sam W. Klambour On The Push To Bring Zentyal Server to macOS

When Apple discontinued macOS Server, there was a gap in the software market for Mac Admins. Sam W. Klambour, Product Evangelist for Zentyal macServertalks about the need for a native macOS server, and the Indiegogo campaign he is coordinating to do just that. Sam explains why there is still a need for small and medium-sized businesses to run their own server, and why such a server needs to be both simple and powerful. We get a look at what such a server would look like, and learn how we can help fill this hole in the solutions that the Mac, as a platform, offers.
