MacVoices #18212: Yev Pusin on Backblaze, macOS Mojave, and Security

Yev Pusin, the Director of Marketing for Backblaze, addresses some of the changes in Mojave that have required user intervention with their online backup service. Apple upped their game on security in the newest version of macOS, and that means that users need to be sure their software is up-to-date with the latest version, and that they understand what permissions they are giving. Yev talks about how Backblaze addressed the issue, give us a behind-the-scenes look at how their processes, and explains why he was visiting from the show floor of the JAMF Nation User Conference.
