Still the Gold Standard

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

It is very customizable, and the online community is second to none.

Cons

There have been a few features that have been missing for a long time. For example, renaming a device using user info during deployment.

Jamf Protect - seamless and invisible

Reviewed 3 years ago

We are very happy with Jamf Protect! The price point and functionality made the switch from another vendor a no-brainer.

Pros

Tight integration with Jamf Pro made setup and deployment extremely simple. I didn’t have to think about it after the initial setup.

Cons

I do wish there was more of a user interface on the client machine.

Jamf Protect, why would you not?

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

For a long time macOS security operations at an enterprise level was unheard of when it came to user friendly GUI and accurate reporting. Jamf Protect now makes this easy. We're now able to get a full spectrum of compliances on our macOS devices in one console, giving us the ability to be proactive in remediation when it comes to threat protection. We're given real-time alerts and insights that we were usually left in the dark with in the past.

Cons

I honestly don't think there are any cons to this product. It does exactly what we want it to do and even rivals our current Threat Protection solution for Windows. The other products could definitely take some queues from Jamf Protect.

Comprehensive endpoint security suite for macOS

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Designed exclusively, for macOS which can be easily seen in its architecture and implementation for any macOS Admin. It is feature rich and is one of the few solutions to leverage the new Endpoint Security framework to prevent (at process level) threats from even launching. Lightweight and by far the lowest impact of other solutions tested and used. Support is excellent and product is updated several time a month with new features and improvements based on feedback.

Cons

More documentation, examples and better marketing and comparison against other solutions would be useful. With its newer approach for security, large range of features and design exclusively for macOS and Endpoint Security framework, traditional security professionals often miss and don't see the benefits of Protect from a preventative (vs. reactive) approach.

Jamf Protect

Reviewed a year ago

Jamf Pro, has the scalability to support organizations of different sizes and growth stages. It provides automation capabilities that enable IT administrators to streamline repetitive tasks, such as device provisioning and configuration. This reduces manual effort, minimizes errors, and allows IT teams to focus on more strategic initiatives

Pros

Conditional access controls: Zero-trust security emphasizes verifying every user and device trying to access resources before granting access

Cons

Device compliance and security policies.

A Great Start

Reviewed 3 years ago

This has allowed us to gain strong endpoint protections.. especially when switching to M1 Macs that (at the time) other software providers didn't yet support.

Pros

I love the heuristic approach to protecting our endpoints. This has the potential to be very effective at mitigating, preventing, and isolating rouge processes/malware.

Cons

Assigning licenses and installing could be easier. Full integration with the Jamf dashboard would be nice. We look forward to more robust pre-canned mitigation workflows to work with.

Easy to set up if already using Jamf Pro

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Very easy to implement if you also are using Jamf Pro. Provides good security event monitoring. Insights for CIS Level 1 and CIS Level 2 are nice to get a good overview of the important settings and policies.

Cons

Default plan only reports, doesn't perform actions unless edited. Need SIEM or AWS S3 bucket for long term log retention as the 2 million event threshold is reached quickly on large deployments.

My simple thoughts on Jamf Protect

Jamf Protect let us use Mac first protection tool which is un-invasive to the users. This allows the user experience be more friendly which sets it apart from our other desktop computers protection software

Cons

Changing plans was a little confusing for me at first. Once I figured them out it was very easy to make changes if you needed to.

Product Review:

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Jamf Protect is great for both home and business and it becomes even better when you use Jamf Protect to set up a virtual private network (VPN). I use VPNs daily to connect to my work computer so I can access my files securely. It is also a great product for home use.

Cons

It works fine overall, but it needs to be a bit faster, maybe better if it gets less processing power in the future.

One Stop Solution for all compliance tools
