Encrypting Mac computers
Automate security settings on your device.
One way to mitigate risk is to encrypt client machines. To help with this, Apple offers an encryption tool called FileVault 2.
What is FileVault 2?
Built-in disk encryption for macOS that encrypts the entire drive using XTS-AES 128 encryption technology.
How does FileVault 2 work?
Creates a pre-boot login partition where the user enters their password and FileVault 2 decrypts the drive and it boots up normally.
How to turn FileVault 2 on?
In the System Preferences, under the Security & Privacy Panel.
With Jamf Pro, you can automate FileVault 2 settings for each device, ensuring they are encrypted — all without touching a device. And because this is a built-in Apple feature, you are not adding unnecessary components that slow down your users.
