Have your Apple products become problematic? Do you need help with your various Mac devices? Despite paying high-end prices, if you’re a regular Apple consumer, your options to get your computer issues resolved are slim. The right Mac support and management might be challenging to find.
If you’re lucky and your Mac is new, you have, “one year of hardware repair coverage through [a] limited warranty and up to 90 days of complementary technical support,” but most people who buy Macs look at them as investments and chances are, you aren’t getting a new one each year. Sure, Apple has some small support subscription options available but they’re priced on the very low end, meaning there’s tons of other people waiting in queue, just like you.
Need on-the-spot technical support? Or sooner-rather-than-later troubleshooting? Want to drop off your device? More often than not, you can expect a wait time and business owners don’t have time to waste. After all, Apple has a reputation for making people wait in line.
Many companies chose to operate on Mac computers exclusively and that’s okay but the question is: is your technical support up to par for both your devices and your level of operation? Having reliable and prompt IT support and management for all of the devices on your network isn’t just ideal, it’s critical. Without it, so much could go wrong.
As a part of our business IT services, we offer support for Mac operating systems and Apple products, including iOS devices. Computero’s certified technicians specialize in device monitoring and support services for Mac devices. If your small-to-medium sized business currently has, or is planning on implementing Macs in the office, Computero can assist with all of your in-office (also known as field services or on-site support) and remote IT support needs.
Your Mac Is Not Invincible: Debunking the Myth
Some Apple users, including many business owners, have become convinced that, “Apple devices can’t be hacked,” and that they’re completely impenetrable when it comes to any form of compromise. It’s time for some tough love: Your Mac is not invincible. Sorry.
So why do many Apple users think this way? What’s the origin of this modern myth? In the past, Apple devices were (technically) virtually free from viruses and malware but this was largely due to Mac’s lack of popularity, at the time. Hackers didn’t want to attack devices that weren’t utilized by many; there wasn’t enough incentive. Most hackers strive to get the largest pool of victims possible, so in a way, Mac’s were seen as unhackable but only because they were viewed as “untouchable,” in the old school definition of the word (as in social outcast). But in today’s world, the statement that, “Macs can’t be hacked,” is no longer true.
Macs, along with many other Apple products, are just as popular and common as Windows devices, so you can expect hackers to target them just the same. Additionally, the threat actors’ toolbox has only become more advanced in recent years, and they’ll exploit any vulnerabilities they can identify in a system. Just like technology is evolving, so are modern-day hackers, as well as the severity of their attacks. If your Mac – or any device for that matter – isn’t secured and managed properly, you could easily become the target of a cyber attack, and the aftermath could be detrimental. Simply put, your Apple devices are not invincible. Having a managed IT service provider to help you upkeep, support, and protect your office Macs is critical.
