Mac Consulting

Macintosh IT Consulting

Our specialty is the Mac Consulting. Our team holds several Apple Certifications, including Apple Certified Systems Administrator and Mobile Technical Competency. The Mac operating system, OS X, has evolved into the most advanced computer operating system in the world. Despite the Mac’s ease of use, it is an extremely complex platform. Many IT providers only support Macs on a very small level, if at all. The team at TechTonic has been working with, and supporting Macs since they were introduced in 1984. We have a very deep understanding of all the technologies and systems that make the Mac such a powerful platform. Corporate and Education IT is changing. We are now seeing employees, teachers, and executives wanting to use Macs on their corporate networks more than ever. We can help internal IT staff better understand how Macs integrate into current infrastructures, and help break down some of the barriers that have prevented Macs from being widely used on corporate networks. For smaller organizations without a large IT infrastructure, we can show you how Macs can have a signifcant impact on the overall value of your IT.

Here are just a few things that TechTonic can do with your Macs:

  • Certified in Mac OS X Server and Client
  • Integration into Windows enterprise and education environments
  • Deep knowledge of underlying BSD UNIX system
  • Deploying Macs in corporate and education, ranging from a single Mac to thousands
  • Central management of large Mac environments
  • Troubleshooting all aspects of the Mac, including complex software configuration and hardware diagnostics
  • Custom tools, from shell scripts to AppleScripts, to full blown Cocoa applications

The data breach at Equifax is somewhat unfathomable because of its scope and magnitude. Sure, there have been large hacks of data in the past such as Yahoo in 2016 and LinkedIn in 2012 - but who cares about email addresses? The Equifax breach contained identity information for 200 million Americans and this could systematically cause massive amounts of identity theft. From the outside, it would seem not that this is expected: surely Equifax had major security software, systems, and tools in place to prevent this from happening. This is certainly true. The problem with cyber attacks is the asymmetric nature of offense and defense. Protecting yourself from a data breach like the Equifax one is like building a house that can withstand an F5 Tornado. house2 As hurricane Harvey and hurricane Irma worked their way up the Gulf of Mexico, one thought that would go through people's mind was "Hurricane's have hit here before - we'll probably be OK". To some degree, there is some logic to this. Modern buildings can withstand hurricanes ok and can even be safe to be in during the store. Millions of people stayed in their houses during these storms and there was only a tiny percentage of life lost. There are some anomalies and bad luck associated with hurricanes, but for the most part they are survivable
