How Pareto Auditor keeps you safe
Here are a few completely scenarios that can happen if you have your Mac's security misconfigured.
Mike forgot to enable FileVault disk encryption after OS reinstall, then someone stole his MacBook, and now they have all of his photos, documents, and business files.
Suzie turned off the Firewall to debug a router, did not remember to turn it back on, and accidentally exposed her local webserver to the entire Starbucks network.
James lent his MacBook to mom for a weekend, forgot he enabled automatic login for her convenience, then found his son playing on his company's Slack.
Paul needed to turn off Gatekeeper to install an app he found on the Internet, then failed to turn it back on again, and his Mac got infected with malware.
Marie did not set auto-updating of apps and got hacked because she was not running a recent app version with the security patch applied.
Mia used her MacBook for a presentation, disabled automatic screen locking, forgot to re-enable it, only to find coworkers having fun with her Facebook.
The simplest security is the most important

A few months after I bought my new Air, I was checking some settings, and I noticed with horror that FileVault was turned off. When I started thinking of all the travel I did and where I left my Mac, I broke out in cold sweat. I have important company documents on my computer that would be easily accessible if anyone got their hands on it.
So I was telling this story to my coworker, and we were musing at my carelessness. Then I asked him to check his computer with our app, then in just the alpha version. And, lo and behold, his FileVault was also disabled. He couldn't believe it. Same as me, he was 100% sure he had it turned on.
Macs have great security out-of-box. But it's not worth anything if it's not turned on. Pareto Auditor makes sure it is.
