Apple products are well-loved in the world of tech startups and in the homes of consumers for many reasons — but enterprise-level administration and security controls are typically not one of them. While Macbooks, iPhones, iPads, and Apple TVs have a wide range of powerful features, Apple doesn’t offer a very comprehensive business management solution.
That’s where Jamf comes in.
What Is Jamf?
Jamf is a powerful program designed to help your organization manage its Apple devices. Jamf makes IT administration tasks simple for iOS, macOS, and tvOS. It makes the experience of using these devices smoother for both your business and your employees, with capabilities like automatically installing applications across multiple devices and remotely wiping or locking devices that have been lost or stolen.
Jamf is an especially useful solution for high-growth businesses, where quick deployment is essential for keeping pace with a rapidly expanding team. Some of Jamf’s customizable features include activation lock behaviors, encryption settings, virtual private networks, and other elements that traditionally require manual configuration by an IT technician. For some of the simpler components, Jamf has a self-service app where users can access authorized or suggested applications, tailored to your company’s needs.
Another useful part of the program is its authentication process. Jamf is able to link up with Okta or Azure Active Directory credentials. Users are then able to log into their Apple device with one set of credentials and access their cloud-based services registered within the directory.
Whether you’re interested in the straightforward setup of Jamf or its ongoing management options, you may be wondering what the deployment process actually looks like. At Kinetix, Jamf is one of our specialties, and we help make deployment as smooth as possible. Let’s take a closer look at that process.
Deployment is one of the most convenient aspects of Jamf. When Jamf is integrated with your company’s Apple Business Manager account, a user can simply open the box, power the device on, and start using it with all of their business tools instantly available to them. Jamf can have everything set up for a seamless and quick experience, with tech that’s ready to use right away. Easier than you thought, right?
