Enterprise star Jamf hits latest Apple OS updates with zero day support
Jamf was once again in position to support Apple’s latest operating system (iOS, iPad OS and tvOS) releases out of the gates, introducing a range of newly possible new features designed to help manage enterprise and educational deployments of Cupertino kit.
What it improved
For Jamf, this release introduced features to help organizations in three areas:
- Enterprise workflows
- Security and privacy
- Distance learning
The company published a press release detailing these enhamcenemts, which you can read for yourself right here.
The Shared iPad enhancements are particularly interesting. These let IT apply profiles at a user level for shared iPads, and also enables IT to deploy “configuration profile payload” – like a Web Clip – to be available to each user as they log into the device.
Better VPN config
Another great feature is in the VPN configuration. Admins can now specify which apps and domains can use the Per-Account VPN connection, and set these up for specific apps.
The capacity to skip setup items for mobile devices – the idea is that you don’t need to fill in every setup box, accelerating deployment.
What Jamf said
“Jamf is proud to have offered same-day support for Apple’s latest operating systems over the years. Whether a customer wants to immediately adopt new OS features or has needs to assess updates before deployment, Jamf’s commitment to compatibility and key feature support helps customers advance the world-class Apple experience that end users expect,” said Jason Wudi, chief technology officer, Jamf.
“This year, Apple has made important updates in user provisioning, powerful enterprise workflows, and ensuring security while upholding user privacy, and we’re excited about what these advancements mean for IT and the end users that rely on Apple’s platforms.”
The bottom line is that Jamf continues to find new ways to supplement Apple’s offerings with solutions tailored for the enterprise.
