    How Google handles its large scale Mac infrastructure

    Basically, they have to make their own tools as Apple simply won't do anything for the enterprise space.
    C'mon Google, release those tools for the oppressed masses of sysadmins out there. You need to build your karma!

    CanHazImage sounds similar to AutoDMG and FileWave Lightning. Google released Cauliflower Vest early last year.
