MacAdmins.org Podcast, Episode 34: Munki + Centrify with Peter Havens


What’s it like to integrate an open-source project into a commercial product? What’s it like for a commercial product to contribute back to the open-source community as a whole? This week, Pepijn, Marcus and Tom sit down with Peter Havens from Centrify to talk about how they’re working with the Munki open-source project to contribute code and to benefit from what the community has helped create. A discussion of malware, MDMs, and new Chrome security options follows.

Our Guest:

  • Peter Havens, Director of Product Management Endpoint Solutions, Centrify [@pehavens]
