We are very proud to keep the MacSysAdmin conference independent from any kind of sponsorship or advertising and to give our speakers total freedom to say anything they like, bad or good, about any relevant technology, product or company.
We do, however, welcome sponsorship for the evening activities from companies that we recognize as value adders to the Mac community. So your beer might be paid by one of these companies.

For more than 18 years, FileWave has assisted business, education, and government customers to take control of their software deployments, giving you granular control of all files in any installation, both pre and post-deployment. FileWave develops, integrates, and supports the FileWave and Inventory products across the globe.

With FileWave, it is as if you have a technician at every system, ready to accomplish whatever you need, whenever you need it. Unlike other methods of software distribution, FileWave gives you complete control of every file, in any installation, even after deployment.

With the Version 5, FileWave integrated Apple’s Mobile Device Management (MDM). Simply deploy iOS configuration profiles with Drag and Drop within the FileWave Administrator Console, choose Apps from the Apple Store inside FileWave and place VPP codes to it before you send it to all your devices. An app portal webclip, which is specific for each device, displays all of your associated Apps on each of your iOS devices. FileWave supports all of the MDM functions that Apple has made available  and additionally direct Enterprise Apps deployment without using the Apple App Store.
