Alectrona's expertise is in integrating Macs & iOS devices into enterprise and mid-market businesses, assisting in modernizing traditional IT towards a user-centric model. We help IT organizations solve problems with integrating their Macs with AD (either natively or via configuring Apple Enterprise Connect, Jamf Connect/NoMAD), providing seamless Kerberos authentication for in-house services, as well as working with more cloud-forward organizations to integrate SSO (G Suite, Okta, OneLogin, Azure) and automate device setup (with help from Apple's Deployment Programs) and automating common manual IT processes such as user account management. We help IT teams develop user self-service solutions to traditional software deployment and patch management through automated tools and scripting mechanisms. Whether in house or BYOD, we can assist develop good practice security models and assist in balancing risk with end user experience.

Our team also has developed a number of custom apps/automations for our customers, including end-user self service Mac migration, workflows to help provide a better user experience around software updates and application patching, and automated remediation of some of the most common IT problems on the Mac.

Alectrona delivers a majority of Jamf's instructor led training in the Washington DC market (currently all Jamf 200 & Jamf 300 courses), combining instructor-led lessons with hands-on labs, every student has a chance to demonstrate each new lesson learned. We have also delivered custom training engagements to enterprise, K-12, and higher education IT teams around Apple device management and Jamf Pro.
