My thanks to Kolide for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed to promote Osquery, a great utility for Mac admins. Osquery is an open source agent released by Facebook. It transforms your Mac fleet into a database that you can query with real SQL. You can get instant and accurate answers from any device (it works on Windows and Linux too).
Getting started with Osquery has always been a challenge for newcomers. To help, Kolide (a new startup co-founded by Osquery’s creator Mike Arpaia) recently released Kolide Fleet, an app to help organizations use Osquery.
Like Osquery, Kolide Fleet is also 100 percent free and open source. Download it today, and hang out with the Kolide team in the Osquery Slack at #kolide.
