    Its middle of the road and should suit most applications well

    Jamf Protect

    Jamf Protect will always have day 1 support for new OS updates, which is an amazing feature. The reporting could use a bit more work and the actions it captures are far beyond anything we would need, but it does that really well too. There are plenty of scenarios where I will gladly recommend this to other institutions. There are not many where I wouldn't. Maybe only if you have a hybrid environment, where licensing another endpoint protection may be beneficial to the budget.

    Pros

    ControlNow (Discontinued)

    • An instant scan of file level downloads so that introduction of a variant file is limited before the scan engine clears it.
    • Dashboard use of the agents available allows for near real-time review and action without directed access to the station.
    John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Jamf Protect

    • Security--it scans processes for 'bad stuff'
    • Notifies admins of any issues or potential issues; entirely customizable and we create many custom notifications and groups.
    • Integrates with Jamf Pro
    • Monitor CIS benchmarks via a clean and nice looking dashboard

    Cons

    ControlNow (Discontinued)

    • Dashboard refresh when you have over 100 end agents can be lagging at times
    • The agent install process has potential to hang without alert or warning unless your paying attention through the complete install
    • The silent install process can be problematic when dealing with large-scale networks with varied OS models
    John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Jamf Protect

    • The cloud GUI. It can be confusing at times.

    ControlNow more nimble and less impactful on the local PC
    John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Jamf Protect

    Jamf Protect is much lighter on system usage. It also has exclusive access to the threat protection baked into macOS. This lets Jamf Protect leverage the great work Apple is doing, and gives admins a way to extend that as well as view reports. Webroot was often missing things that were threats. SentinelOne was a bit more resource heavy. Solarwinds...err..."N-Able"...do I really need to say anything?

    Return on Investment

    ControlNow (Discontinued)

    • At current we are on build up and the ROI isnt a factor
    John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Jamf Protect

    • Positive: It allowed us to deploy machines that were not deployable before due to compliance issues.
    • Positive: Easy to implement in the shortest amount of time needed.
    • Negative: Could be costly if you have a big environment
