314: Give Your Dough To The Baker

Topics:

-Sam has some follow up regarding his “Ubiquiti Hell” from a few weeks ago.  In the end, it turned out to be a bad UniFi USG device.

-Joe has some wise sayings to share that ring true in our industry and the value we bring as consultants:
"Let the Baker Bake the Bread, even if he takes half the Dough" - Persian Saying 

“Give your Dough to the Baker, even if he will eat half the bread.” 

-Sam says we are like bomb technicians.  “You are paying us to know which wire to cut.”

-Jerry has some follow up about two factor authentication being baked in to one of our favorite apps, 1Password.  This was brought to our attention by long time listener, Michael Reinhart.

-Jerry is curious about the various methods of how 1Password can sync you data and what Joe & Sam use

-1Password’s secure options for recovering your security related data can sometimes be off-putting for some users and drive them away from password management tools

-1Password has an affiliate program that is fairly easy to sign up for.  It is run by commission junction.

-Moving back to Addigy territory, Joe expresses his frustrations with the interface at times

-Joe shares a tip about creating a custom table view. There is a view option in the column toggle icon in the top right of the Devices list.  Then you can adjust it and Save the changes using the table view menu in the top left of the Devices list.

-Joe encourages the group to scratch beneath the surface of Addigy and find resources available in the community

-For Sam, he’s been utilizing Addigy to enable MDM features like white listing Kernel Extensions (KEXT) and deploying PPPC profiles.  In the case of PPPC, there is a great Git Hub project that makes the process easier for those who are not familiar with these profiles:

-Joe covers the topic of User Approved MDM and Sam tags along with a discussion of Apple Business Manager and enrolling into MDM at Setup Assistant.

-Another Git Hub project, UMAD, provides a nice GUI interface to encourage your users to onboard and enroll into UAMDM
