ControlNow (Discontinued)

Its middle of the road and should suit most applications well
John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

Jamf Protect

It is ideally suited for companies with staff who need admin access but may not be fully trusted to manage their computers. They fall for phishing attacks and other hacks where they might be tricked into installing malware or "updates" that are not really updates. It is also great for anyone who needs to monitor CIS benchmarks.

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 integration with Jamf Pro has come a long way but could still be a bit more "one stop" vs two tools and two dashboards.

Alternatives Considered

ControlNow (Discontinued)

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

  • Reduced helpdesk tickets for admin tasks; reduces overall IT costs
  • Reduced lost time due to malware
  • Reduced lost data due to infected computers needing a wipe and purge of any malware
