Finally, easier to use!

2018-02-06

Significantly eases Apple device management.

Pros

Latest UI is soooo much easier to understand and error reporting is actually informative - keeps getting better with every revision.

Cons

In earlier versions, the UI was very confusing and difficult to understand.

The MDM you are looking for

2021-04-29

I am very happy with Jamf Now as our Mobile Device Management platform.

Pros

The thing that I like the most about Jamf Now is that it is very quick to make everyday changes, has a very simple and intuitive interface that isn't too busy, and it just works very well for a company of our size (medium sized).

Cons

Sometimes app installations may become stalled, but you can easily check out which devices are having any problems and you may re-install the app once more to address the issue.

Good solution to entry level device management

2018-04-24

Inexpensive and easy to use device management.

Pros

We are able to easily push apps, update software, and track our equipment.

Cons

For our purposes, the only negative aspect that I have encountered is that it does not provide the option to automatically remove some of the default apps that Apple includes with the iPad. Not being able to automatically delete TV, Home Kit, Tips, etc. still means that we have to touch each device. I wouldn't have anything to complain about if this was added.

Jamf Now used for Apple mobility tracking and production in a law firm

Everything has been great so far. Very helpful support staff on duty to help.

Pros

I like the portal for management. Clean, crisp, and very easy to use.

Cons

I was looking for something that was Android and Apple, but couldn't pass up this software for our Apple management.

I Love Jamf Now

2019-06-11

We finally could kill our outdated Google spreadsheet once we deployed Jamf Now, and for that I am eternally grateful. We also had a couple of thefts in the months following deployment and were able to remotely wipe the machines.

Pros

Jamf is the industry leader for enterprise Mac management, and it's clear why.

Cons

It is pretty simple as far as features go, and I would love it to inherit even just a little more from Jamf Pro.

Really poor software and service

2021-03-08

Jamf barely supports this software and it shows. This software's features are

Pros

The interface is clean, was easy to setup, good email notifications about certificates needing to be rotated.

Cons

Their customer support always provided "wiping the computers" as the best solution to any real issues, which is unreasonable to ask.

Easy and simple way to manage Apple devices in the workplace

2019-10-21

I can’t rate Jamf Now highly enough; it’s been the perfect solution for our small business to make deploying new devices easy and maintaining a robust management system for our clients.

Pros

Jamf Now is really intuitive and user-friendly and everything from setting up email accounts, WiFi networks and user privileges can be done before the device even arrives at the office (or to a remote worker if delivered directly to them).

Cons

I honestly can’t think of any cons for Jamf Now; I can’t rate this service highly enough!

A Small Business Dream

2019-03-05

Pros

As far as I am aware it is the best software available for mobile device management becuase it is specifically designed to communicate with the core Apple operating system.

Cons

However, once you set up the backend, adding new devices is easy. I was able to walk someone through the steps of adding an iPad to our company JamfNow over the phone.

Jamf Now is easy to use and our account manager has been extremely helpful for us.

2017-12-04

Pros

It's a clean interface and easy to navigate through.

Cons

It's not very easy to pull reports that let us see our inventory or to dig deeper into the details of our inventory.

Makes life so much easier

2019-01-15

Very good. So easy to implement and it has always worked.

Pros

We used mac os server before for device management but this is so much easy to manage.

Cons

I wish we could change passwords for individual accounts on devices but I realize this is hard with just as simple device manager. Also I wouldn't have to change the password for the admin account on devices every 3 months (company requirement) by logging into the device. I would love just to do this through my jamf account.

OCCK's Review

2021-03-25

I would highly recommend this product for use with mobile devices.

Pros

I like that once a blueprint is developed I can tweak it and apply it to devices and randomly push out apps to certain devices very easily.

Cons

Unfortunately I had trouble with my apple push notification and ended up having to start all over so I am still in the process of restoring over 100 devices.

Great software. Makes it easy to get a big picture of all the devices.

2021-03-25

We love it and use it for all our mobile computer devices.

Pros

I like the clear UI so you can get a good picture of everything without digging down too much.

Cons

The renewals of licensing/connections are a pain but I don't see that as a fault of Jamf. More that you guys have figured out how to make it less painful.

Great for Small Business Device Management

2019-09-26

I have met the developers, sales people, and other technical support teams while at the JAMF User Conference 2018 in Minneapolis before, and they are just a fantastic, honest, and high quality company.

Pros

It allows you to set security policies from denying the use of a camera if you are in a sensitive area, to can a personal iCloud account be used on a business device.

Cons

After using the full capabilities of a full Jamf Pro system, there are many features that I would like to see integrated into their Now product. Jamf Now is not intended to be as complex and Jamf Pro is, but there a couple of things such as the ability to setup a WiFi profile to support connecting to an enterprise network. Right now you can only setup a PSK network. Not a big deal, but something that would be nice without having to upgrade you plan.

Jamf Now is a dream!

2019-08-15

Pros

Also- setting up the blueprints for your different devices and levels of access is so simple.

Cons

Not a huge deal, but annoying at the time. And locking of iPads once someone has turned it off and it’s in lock mode.

Great for small to midsize business

2017-04-14

We have also had computers stolen from our office before, so it's great to have the feature where we can remotely wipe them.

Pros

I like the interface and also the support is great.

Cons

Sometimes app deployment from the App store is slow, or will come back with an error.

Excellent way to manage multiple Apple devices

2021-02-07

They can access the files and apps I give them access to and that's it.

Pros

This software is so user friendly once you figure out how to use it.

Cons

There is a bit of a learning curve when you first start but their excellent support helps keep you on the straight and narrow. It is intimidating just thinking about how you could possibly mess up an expensive device but their FAQs and setup videos are indispensable.

Outstanding, Understandable MDM

2019-05-22

As an IT provider, I manage dozens of Apple device deployments. Jamf Now allows complete oversight of all devices in the organization from a single browser window.

Pros

Outstanding tools to deploy Apple devices securely within your organization.

Cons

Inability to seamlessly upgrade to their more advanced product, Jamf Pro. But I know they're working hard to find a solution...!

Get Jamf Now NOW

2021-03-25

Pros

This was easy to integrate with our DEP for automatic enrollment and ensures that our iOS devices don't go missing or get locked.

Cons

I wish that Apple had this as a native functionality, but since it doesn't, then this is the best option.
