We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The main control page and the ability to manage all our users from a web-based portal are the most valuable aspects of the solution. That's particularly useful because we're a heterogeneous network."
"The Cloud Identity is well advanced in terms of features, applications, and the components that it is offering."
"Although we have not looked at the whole product and explored it completely, we find that all the authentication features that we are using now are valuable."
"The most valuable feature is the performance."
"The most valuable feature is that you can manage users from one central location."
"I think the first thing that is great is that it gives you a lot of features, like login, and then vaulted passwords and secure LDAP. It becomes easier for the end customer to leverage all those features without going to a higher SKU of G Suite."
"The full API lets us write custom scripts and apps to enhance even further the end-user experience."
"The features that have been the most life-saving for us are pre-stage enrollments and self-service."
"Policies are a great feature that allows us to push certain restrictions to devices that require them, such as the younger generation of students we have."
"The design of the GUI, as compared to other solutions, really makes a difference."
"The Self Service feature, which allows us to make apps available to our staff and students was essential."
"The time that we save in hours for new deployments, redeployments, application upgrades and OS upgrades more than makes up for the cost of the product."
"The most valuable features are the restrictions, Lost Mode, Self Service, and full implementation of anything Apple will let MDM manage."
"The Smart Groups have been very beneficial for quick reporting when a critical, out of cycle patch is required."
"The solution needs to better integrate with Mac's OS."
"The interface could be improved by simplifying it further."
"To improve the product, the integration with third-party products could always be smoother."
"The pricing for this solution is a little bit higher than AWS and others, which is something that should be improved."
"In the next release, I would like to see integration with different systems, mainly wireless SIEMS and other analytical systems that we want to introduce."
"They are going ahead and adding a few more things to the Google Cloud premium edition. Their stock management and remote computer management can be improved."
"A more modern UI in the next release will make the product absolutely perfect."
"The ability to ask a device to run a policy regularly would be a real advantage."
"An in-house chat room would be a great way to communicate with your team when you aren't physically present with them."
"I would love to see an integrated ticketing system built-in, better reporting templates to help analyze the data (software usage, etc.), and integration with FREE SSL Cert (letsencrypt.org) with auto-renewal."
"I would like to be able to see what policies and configuration profiles are tied to what Smart/Static groups."
"Jamf doesn't make the Cloud file system visible so there are rare occasions where the local repository and Cloud repository get out of sync."
"Technical support is in need of improvement."
"I can only say that I would love to see a more customizable dashboard."
"We probably spend about $50,000 a year on licensing."
"Licensing fees are on a yearly basis."
"The product is billed on a monthly basis depending on the number of users."
"The fees are paid monthly and there are no additional costs other than the licensing fees."
"The total ROI is worth every penny."
"The setup is pricey upfront for support and setup."
"Setup and licensing prices are getting to be too high."
"The cost of Jamf is certainly worth the investment."
"I know that as a school we get a discounted price, which is good because without it we would not be able to afford it."
"Don’t go into a sales call without knowing all the details of your system because Jamf has a ton of tools outside of Jamf Pro to offer and knowing them ahead of time is a must."
"JumpStart is available at an additional cost."
"This is a pricey solution."
