Mac-Based Security Threats are Growing Concern for IT Service Providers

One of the great benefits of having a Mac has been the reduced threat of malware and other security threats. However, with the increased popularity of Macs, IT service providers have seen the security threats grow as well. As reported by the threats grew in the last six months of 2011, and we can expect similar increases in 2012.

What does that mean for businesses running Macs? While the security threats to Macs are still much lower than Window machines, they are growing to a point where business managers should be concerned.

Skyriver IT recommends making some immediate changes to your Mac out of the box. This includes setting up the firewall and encrypting the hard drive. Also, educating users on security threats can help to prevent inadvertent downloading of malware and viruses. With a few simple steps, you can greatly reduce the security threats to any Macs on your network.
