Fun with User Approved MDM enrollment and Privacy Preferences Policy Controls in Mojave with FileWave!
With changes in Mojave, managing Privacy Preferences Policy Control payloads to generate expected behavior takes some careful planning. While these changes are a good thing, they do change behavior of how apps interact with the users. We'll cover when and how to create and implement them in FileWave as well as giving some background on how they work. We'll review User authenticated MDM and how that ties into kernel extension whitelisting and the Privacy profiles (also known as Transparency, Consent, Controls, aka TCC profiles).

Balancing User Security and Privacy with Device Management and how Addigy can help
One of the things that separates Apple from others is their emphasis on privacy and security for the device user. This emphasis can make it seem that Privacy and Security are contradictory to supporting your organizations goals with Device Management, but the two are complementary. In this session we will discuss the privacy and security measures that Apple is building and how they will help you get your job done. And, how Addigy and the Addigy community can further help!
