Abstract:
Abstract As our lives increasingly go digital, Data Protection has become one of the critical concerns. With data breaches on rise, companies must remain vigilant in safeguarding their assets. Breaches in data security can appreciably cost company customers, reputations and significant fines or damages. OS X is designed from the ground up with an eye toward providing and maintaining system security in an automatic and easy-to-use way. Apple strives to ensure that OS X provides protection to systems, software, and data without the need for advanced configuration or specialized tools. Apple also implements many security features designed to protect the confidentiality of both user and corporate data. Some of these features protect data stored on a local or removable volume (data at rest), while others protect data shared on a local network or traveling across the Internet (data in transit). Many of these technologies are inherent in the design of the operating system and are active without requiring configuration. Others, such as FileVault, can be easily enabled and configured by both users and IT departments. This paper will explore the features provided by Apple in Mac OS X for Data Protection. Keywords: Disk Image, FileVault, Keychains, Mac OS X
