Jamf Pro Benefits

reviewer1297662
Senior Macintosh Systems Administrator/ Task Lead/ Information Assurance Officer at a government with 10,001+ employees
I am now able to easily manage all of my systems and patch when necessary, with little to no interruptions to the customer. It has saved me tons of time, as well as the IA team when I gave them rights for reporting. Jamf Pro has helped me educate a Windows-centric agency with an Information Assurance team that is also strictly experienced with Windows. Everyone was fearful of Macs and their integration into a Windows infrastructure and domain. Jamf Pro’s similarities to Microsoft’s SCCM for Windows assets helped me prove that Macs can be as useful, if not more than Windows in some cases, and very easy to secure and keep secure, even with major upgrades.

Things are more automated, so we can be much more hands-off while having greater visibility into what is going on in our environment. We used to have to touch every iPad multiple times per year; with the innovations that Apple has come out with that have been implemented by Jamf, like volume purchasing and device-based app deployment, we can set things up to work automatically. Things that would have taken us weeks in the past now take us mere minutes. With Jamf reset, we can save time at the end of the school year by having the end-users erase the devices for us. This is a recently-added function and the solution keeps getting better and better. View full review »

Director, Mac Technical Support at Marymount Manhattan College
Using this solution has brought order to chaos. The biggest things that Jamf Pro has done are: * Support my Tier 1 tech support to quickly help our users * Empower our users to help themselves with our Self-Service portal. * Save my sanity before I almost decide to change careers. I love what I do but Jamf Pro makes my job 'fun' to do, especially when the need to replicate solutions diminishes because of Self Service! View full review »

Head of Operatons and Data Protection at a tech company with 51-200 employees
We were able to dramatically enhance our cybersecurity, and better support our users. Through Jamf, we were able to enforce things like encryption (escrow keys), password policies, the firewall on the Mac, etc. We can also remotely wipe/lock devices as required. View full review »

Mobile System Administrator - End User Experience at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees
Jamf has improved patient care and our ability to be more productive when delivering our end-users a nearly zero-touch onboarding experience for their Macs. We have seen our patient care experience improve with the use of Jamf and the ability to take the work out of our nurses' hands. Automating the refresh of the devices is huge for both sides of the end-user experience. View full review »

Jamf Pro has made it possible to go to an almost 1:1 student to iPad ratio. Without Jamf Pro, that just would not have been possible to manage. With this 1:1 experience for students, learning and engagement are at an all-time high for our district. I feel overall Jamf Pro has made buy-in by staff, students, and parents that much more.

Jeffery Anderson
Support Team Lead at a media company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Without Jamf, it would be nearly impossible to manage 700 Macs and 700 iPads. With limited staff, we can manage this number of devices with ease. Imagine having to go to 700 devices to do a software or OS update. With Jamf, we don't have to touch each device. We can easily determine software and OS versions on the devices and push updates to the devices as needed. We also offer several macOS and iOS applications in Self Service, which is a repository where users can install company-approved applications with ease. View full review »

IT Support Technician at MLSE
It has made the management of macOS much easier and we are able to standardize and have our Macs in compliance. Although we're predominantly a Windows environment we've had challenges integrating our macOS devices but Jamf has made it simple with compliance deployments and when it comes to pushing out security patches and monitoring the devices remotely. It also helps monitor devices in our zero-trust environment. Being able to push out elevation policies to users on an Adhoc basis helps us when users are not in the office. View full review »

We could not do the scale and the consistency of support without Jamf. We would have to hire a team of employees and still not have the level of end-user support we can deliver with Jamf. We can automate the entire setup process, fix problems in a moment's notice and from anywhere in the world. View full review »

We use zero-touch deployment for all devices, meaning IT is freed up to work on other things. Apple’s deployment programs enable zero-touch deployment by automating enrolment and configuration from a central location, all without having to open the box. View full review »

Rolling out devices has never been easier, Jamf helps minimise the workload on our IT department. Managing a large number of devices requires a lot of manpower and Jamf helps reduce that. Zero-touch rollout at its best. View full review »

It provides an easier way to deploy apps to classroom devices. App requests are now made through a form, instead of giving teachers an iTunes gift card, and this has helped teachers be more conscious when reviewing apps, which has been better on the budget. View full review »

John Mahlman IV
Senior Desktop Engineer - Mac at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
Without Jamf we wouldn't be able to manage the systems at all. I have looked at many other solutions over the years. I have been a Mac admin, and Jamf provides the only complete solution for managing Macs at large and small scale. Currently, only a small team manages over 500 Macs with plans for growth over the next two years. In the past, I have managed over 2000 devices with only two administrators. This wouldn't be possible without Jamf Pro. View full review »

Device management is very much better with Jamf! Prior to using this solution, we only used ARD for management. Jamf takes the complication out of all of it. I can easily push scripts to end-users in the background without interrupting their workflow. This is something for which they are grateful. View full review »

Zero-touch deployment is very helpful to us. We deliver new or refreshed Macs or iOS devices directly to new employees. Also, we provide BYOD for iOS, so it is possible to check mail using private devices. We don't have to push all of the software, as the company store (self-service) allows for the downloading of all necessary applications. View full review »

Jamf Pro has improved the way IT supports education. It isn't just about device support anymore, we understand the power technology holds in the classroom. We are now able to collaborate with teachers to help them get the most out of their lessons. They have a goal, we have the knowledge to help them accomplish this. View full review »

The use of Jamf Pro has massively streamlined our process of working with Apple devices. Before Jamf, we would individually set up and install software on student and staff computers. This was a huge undertaking and has been made so much easier with the help of Jamf, being able to set this up for deployment beforehand. View full review »

Jamf simplified our deployment during our hand out events in the fall. It specializes in Apple devices, which for us was a plus since we didn't have Chromebooks or other non-Apple devices we needed to manage. View full review »

With so many devices and such a small technical staff to support them, we needed a tool that allows us to minimize tech issues. This tool allows us to push apps to student devices and teacher computers, lock down missing devices, and push an alarm to a misplaced device. All excellent tools to have in your belt for day to day operations. View full review »

Jamf changed our lives completely from configuration, compliance and management. We needed something like a complete Mac shop to help us manage devices all over the world. With Jamf Pro in the cloud, we are capable of managing these systems and devices with ease. View full review »
