Our primary use case is managing our one-to-one iPad environment for our lower school students and maximizing our efficiency. By utilizing Configuration profiles, we are able to push out all of our apps to our classroom sets of one-to-one iPads. They install without us having to handle the devices, and then auto-update. We can then wipe the iPads all at once at the end of the year, by simply performing the startup procedure, everything will reset for the next school year. Ultimately, it saves us a lot of time and headaches.

The primary use case is to manage everything Apple in our environment. This includes everything from assigning the asset to the user, controlling licensing via the App Store, custom policies, and configurations. The goal is to ease the burden on our Service Desk, while also enabling the user to be more self-sufficient. In the past, I have used many MDM solutions and most of the time it came down to poor documentation with them compared to Jamf. We found the resources provided were more then enough to get us up and running. Plus, the continued support from their staff has been awesome!

Jamf Pro is used to manage our fleet of Apple devices consisting of both macOS & iOS devices. With Jamf, we are able to effortlessly deploy devices, in a consistent manner, with minimal involvement from IT team members.

The primary web application is responsible for syncing data from the configured Apple School Manager instance and Jamf Pro. This includes recurring scheduled syncs, as well as manually initiated syncs performed while logged in to a secondary web application. This monitor collects information about devices that have been added to Automated Device Enrolment (formerly DEP) portals and assigned to the Jamf Pro MDM server. It is run by the primary web application. Any manually initiated refreshes are performed by the web application the user is logged in to.

We use Jamf to manage our school's new 1:1 inventory of devices. Everything is in one place for our OS X and iOS deployments. We are now starting to integrate with certificates for our new wireless system and it has been wonderful to work with the teams at Jamf. Jamf Pro has helped us to have the best management for all of our devices. I was a manager of iOS devices in the past, and it was extremely cumbersome to use some of the other software out there. Jamf has made it so that I don't have to worry about anything.

We want to manage unmanaged macOS devices using Jamf Pro Cloud Solution. Secondly, we want to migrate Intune-managed macOS devices to Jamf Pro. We would like to comply with our company security policies that we achieved using CIS Benchmarks. We want to manage productivity applications such as Office 365 suite apps, VPN, Google Chrome, NoMAD, and other business apps as required in real-time. Our users want to access intranet sites, which we were able to achieve smoothly. Finally, we are able to manage the admin rights process on macOS.

We manage about 2,300 macs in our enterprise. Most of the devices are used by developers. Right now, we manage only basics in our mac fleet. Like having a compliant mac, get the VPN Anti Virus, Firewall NoMAD, and other basic software on it. Also, users have the option to get additional software via self-service. So, when a user gets a device from us, it is pretty "vanilla" and they can customize the device themself. Additionally, we configure the device for printing and proxy usage. We are aiming to manage a lot more with Jamf, which is certainly possible. At some point, we also want to make the mac available for all users, not just developers. Jamf will immensely help us with this goal.

We use Jamf Pro Cloud to manage 500+ Apple iPads, MacBook Airs, and Mac minis across both our campus and distance learning environments with 50+ employees and 300 students. Jamf Pro facilitates all device provisioning, software deployment, security profiles, and network access. The printer setup is managed by static groups. Device monitoring is simple using smart groups to monitor for device health, battery charge, storage, and OS version, among other options. Jamf Pro Cloud is simple to use, powerful and it empowers our IT workflow to provide excellence in customer service.

Our primary use case is automated enrollment for clients. We use Apple Business Manager and leverage it for new computers. For existing computers, I created an automated enrollment process, enlisting machines that can remotely wipe and re-install the OS and bring down the entire suite of applications on enrollment, which is very powerful.

We have a mixed Windows/Mac environment, and needed a good MDM solution to efficiently handle the Mac side. We use Jamf Pro to image and deploy new systems utilizing DEP and pre-stage enrollment. We also push out policies and configurations to install software and settings for specific users that are role-based. With Jamf Pro, we're able to work fully remote as an IT team, which is something that would have been very difficult prior to its implementation. Luckily we installed the software before Covid!

We manage our Macs entirely with this solution and have it tied to our directory. Users, apps, and settings are all managed in this tool. We create accounts at first start, with their directory credentials. It encrypts the disk, it reports back stats and installs the most important apps for them. It also saves time with setting up mail, having optional apps in self-service, etc. With our setup, it's a complete tool for managing our fleet of Macs and iPhones. It saves time, keeps us secure, and is easy to use.

Our main use of Jamf is to manage our ever-growing Apple environment. We are 90:10 Windows to Mac ration environment which means that the adoption rates for macOS are also increasing after our pilot project for our choice program. 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.

In my highly secure government infrastructures, Jamf is an absolute must for staying in tune with continuous monitoring (critical patching, STIG application, and reporting), especially from a central location. When we were in pursuit of our authority to operate, we were almost shut down by a Windows-specific IA group until I explained what Jamf was and how it would help implement and prove how secure Macs can be. After that, it was a requirement for our ATO to even be considered, much less approved.

We use Jamf Pro to manage 1300+ iPads for students and teachers, as well as 100+ MacBooks for teachers and several Apple TVs for classrooms. We push out apps and software, manage updates, and restrict content. We keep our users working and focused on what they should be doing during school, while giving them freedom to do what they want to do in off-hours, in a safe environment. We get alerts when users violate policies and can take immediate action to disable a device if need be. We can also find lost iPads using Lost Mode.

We use Jamf to deploy our Macs and iPads. We have 700 Macs and 700 iPads that we manage using Jamf. We typically refresh around 200 new devices every year. This is a lot to manage. We can give a user an iPad still in the box and when they open it, they log into the device using their network credentials and Jamf sets up and configures the device automatically. For Macs, we have minimal set up prior to deployment. Jamf installs all of our company applications and then we use Jamf to keep the Mac up to date.

The primary use case for us is MyChart Bedside, as we work to provide in-house iPads for different areas of our hospital. The iPads have entertainment apps, as well as tools to help improve their stay in our hospital. We also use this solution for macOS deployment. We use the hosted Jamf Pro and cloud app shares. We internally use Jamf for the healthcare listener and the AD proxy.

We have about forty-five hundred devices in total that we use Jamf Pro to manage. We use Jamf Pro to push out apps to our staff and students, to set certain restrictions for our students, and to make the best user experience possible.

Using this solution has brought order to chaos. We use Jamf to manage labs and laptops. It was a huge pain bringing in the different Mac computers/setups/software under one roof. No one knows what life was like before automated enrollment (formerly DEP). We currently are on-premises but are strongly moving toward the cloud. I think the price difference to NOT MANAGE our own servers is small compared to saving me hours of headaches looking for and testing solutions/upgrades.
