Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Jamf Pro allowed us to patch and manage endpoints while collecting log data to help improve operational efficiency.""The most valuable features are the Jamf agent and the API.""Users love that instead of having to wait for tickets to be resolved, they can open an app and run a specific policy.""We were able to dramatically enhance our cybersecurity, and better support our users.""It's a great way to keep track of all of our licenses and the software we use daily.""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."

More Jamf Pro Pros »

"The most valuable feature is the graphical-based reports of software updates that have been successful, the ones that have failed, and a summary of where the failures are what security breaches may occur.""This solution helps us by automating the patching of our system.""This has made the management of our environment easier.""This solution has made life easy with respect to patching, compliance, and OSD.""The most valuable features are Remote Connect, SUP, Cloud functionality, Report, Query, and third-party patching.""The most valuable features are application deployment and task-sequenced imaging.""Patching is the main feature because SCCM is made to control the entire environment without manually interpreting. So it is good to use for patching.""Microsoft is being very competitive right now, and they are really investing in a lot of new features to be more competitive in the marketplace."

Cons
"The list of applications for patch management isn't sufficient.""There are known issues with the mobile configs that need to be fixed.""If it could do ticketing and non-Apple devices then that would be huge.""This solution would benefit from more focus on Self Service, such as Office 365 and GSuite integration.""There is still no feature for properly patching T2 Security Chip-enabled Macs.""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."

More Jamf Pro Cons »

"I would like to see an agentless version of the solution.""This solution should be simpler, and more consistent across modules/sections.""Not everything is readily available, and there are a lot of commands that are only executable via PowerShell.""This solution needs to be supported on all Operating systems.""The cost of the product can be improved.""The operations could be faster and you need some patience with this tool.""The main room for improvement is the on-screen display. I think it would be good if some improvements were made.""We'd like the solution to make it easier to manage remote users."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The setup cost is in the training, which is the most important step of your journey.""The cost of this solution is expensive but worth it.""If you have the in-house capability to support Jamf, then paying for onboarding / JumpStart training is a no brainer.""With respect to pricing, Jamf Pro is the better bet.""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.""Licensing cost is dependent on the footprint and foreseen growth."

More Jamf Pro Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licensing is good because they have various options, depending on what you are looking for.""Pricing is negotiable with Microsoft, depending upon which of their packages you choose.""When you compare this solution with other tools in the market you might actually find a lot of variation in the pricing and that's why people opt for the other tools rather than Microsoft tools."
