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 features are visibility and remote access.""The remote control we have helps us a lot.""We can do auto patch updates using SOTI. SOTI has been well placed in terms of the number of endpoints it can handle.""The most valuable features are remote control and geo-fencing.""All features are useful. It is useful for preventing the use of unauthorized software on corporate-owned devices. It provides an option to lock the devices for unauthorized software. The devices can only be used under the supervision of the device manager.""The installation is very straightforward."

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 »

"There is room for improvement when it comes to the ability to customize devices and choosing what information goes onto them.""The solution could use better reporting.""In the next release, they should make it easier to migrate.""Adding more features for iOS devices would be an improvement.""The pricing policy of SOTI is not stable. You buy it today at one price, and the following year, it becomes something like 5% or 7% higher. From my point of view, SOTI is a little bit weak in terms of implementation on the new Windows 10 devices, and they have to work on this. It can't compete with Intune and other solutions when it comes to Windows implementation. It almost doesn't work with iOS. It works well with Android.""It would be helpful if the product offered more integration and more features around the iOS and macOS platforms."

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 »

"There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""Its pricing policy is not stable. The licensing is on a one-yearly, two-yearly, or three-yearly basis. There is no monthly fee."
