Mac is designed to keep your business data safe and secure

 ·1 Jun 2023

At the heart of every successful business lies a need for security. The security of a loyal customer base, the security of a unique selling proposition, the security of a hard-won reputation for value and service.

But there’s an equally important element that needs to be taken into account, and that is the security of your data.

In a digital-first world, it’s vital to protect your computer against hackers, viruses, and other threats to the safety and integrity of your information.

Thankfully, there’s an easy, all-in-one way to do this. Get a Mac. Here are a few reasons why the new generation of Mac, supercharged with M1 and M2 chip are the best options for keeping your business data safe and secure.

Mac defends and protects your data at a hardware level

The first line of defence on a MacBook, before you even boot-up and login, is a powerful security feature called the Secure Enclave.

It’s a separate and secure subsystem — think of it as the holding area of your own Fort Knox — that automatically encrypts your data and shields against attack, ensuring that you, and only you, are granted access.

Mac keeps viruses and malware at bay

Built into every MacBook is a series of sophisticated technologies designed to monitor, detect, and neutralise any threats to your data. It’s an early-warning system, running unobtrusively in the background, that looks out for potential intruders and looks after you, your employees and your business.

Mac’s powerful FileVault system offers even more protection for your sensitive data

While Mac’s Secure Enclave automatically encrypts the data on your MacBook M1 or M2, you can choose to enable FileVault for even greater peace of mind. This gives you an extra layer of full-disk encryption, backed by a unique Recovery Key that is created just for you.

Mac keeps the security of your system up to date

The best way to maintain the safety and security of your Mac is to install the latest macOS updates and patches as and when they become available. You can opt to have updates installed automatically in the background, or install them at your convenience when you get a notification. Either way, regular security updates ensure that your Mac will be protected from any new threats or potential attacks.

Mac keeps you safe as you surf with Safari

Apple’s powerful built-in browser, Safari, has been purpose-designed to keep you safe and secure on the web. Safari uses Intelligent Tracking Prevention to stop website trackers from profiling or following you. You can easily hide your IP address and location, block all cookies, or browse privately by default. As a further safeguard, Safari will confine any suspicious code to a single browser tab, to prevent unauthorised access to your data.

Mac puts you in charge of the features your apps can access

If an app wants to access the camera or microphone on your Mac, or capture an image or video of your screen, you’ll be asked for permission first. The choice is yours. macOS keeps a close eye on apps you download online, checking them for malicious code and blocking them from launching if required. Apple’s strict App Review system ensures that you can install apps from the App Store without any concern.

You can keep track of your Mac if it goes missing or gets stolen

In the nightmare event that your Mac goes astray or falls into the wrong hands, you can at least rest assured that your data will be safe from access or harm. Using the built-in Find My app, you’ll be able to track and locate your missing Mac, even if it’s offline or in sleep mode. And as a last resort, you can securely lock your Mac with a passcode, or erase its contents completely with a remote command.
