To provide better service and improved cybersecurity, Hive IT is introducing a new management system for Macs in the College. This system will allow us to standardize configuration and update processes, bringing Macs in line with our support standards for Windows PCs on campus.
Welcome to the first installment Tech Tips from the Hive. Tech Tips will be a regular feature of the staff newsletter where we hope to provide you with useful information about technology for both work and personal use. We will also use this space to answer technical issues that our support staff sees regularly in the College. Additionally, we’ll try to provide information on programs, apps, technology, etc. that you may find useful at home or at work.
