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 »

"It's all about centralizing your data and making sure that your data is centralized and secure.""We used to have a system before, Mac OS Open Directory server and this open directory became obsolete because Apple decided to stop the enterprise market, so there was no other alternative for us to use. We chose this to replace the open directory and we found that it has many more features than the previous solution. We totally rely on it right now to manage all the devices on campus.""The feature that we find most valuable is the corporate email pushing.""Cloud-based VMware Workspace ONE is very good. It is easy to deploy and manage. Maintenance is also quite simple.""A very easy to use solution.""The most valuable feature is policy-driven control of the devices.""The remote management and location capabilities are good.""The most valuable feature is the interface with SCAP, which is the Security Content Automation Protocol."

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."

"The setup was very difficult. It was not as easy as I had expected.""The solution needs to adapt to the cloud based reality of the current world model. Some customers may have reluctance to this, but it is the next level for all of the big providers. Azure, AWS and Google are all on the forefront of cloud-based solutions.""The mobile device repository is somewhat difficult to manage with a large user base.""Pricing is the only challenge right now. The licensing fee should be simplified a little bit. They have kept too many products as add ons. These need to be bundled with the low-cost, standard version. This will help customers in adopting this technology at a faster pace.""Cost of licensing is quite high.""When it comes to deployment and maintaining security, there should be an integrated console where you have a singular view of all of the products from the same OEM.""The app installer is something that they should really change. It creates a lot of confusion for the user.""The reverse proxy is not intuitive and it takes time to get it right, so this is something that can be improved."

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 »

"I think the pricing of the product needs advisement. It would be great to bundle the VM products together. I think the actual box itself should be included in the license. At present, it is not paired with the mobile device.""If you purchase it for one year, it is very expensive. If you get it for three years or up to five years, then you can bargain a better price.""There is a separate cost for technical support and extra premium features. The pricing should be simplified.""The cost is a little bit high.""VMware Workspace ONE is not cheap; it's quite expensive. However, in the end, they gave us a reasonable price.""If you have a host of custom requirements (including licensing), make sure to set aside enough time for the initial setup because it can take up to a few weeks depending on how complex your environment is."
