Anywhere with under 100 Apple devices, I would recommend this service. It was always so simple to add a device you recently purchased to your inventory and be able to check in on it anytime. If they had more than 100, I would recommend Jamf Pro, the enterprise version of this software.

Once we had got 20k plus users to blacklist. The data was too big. We wanted the results within some hours. When we used SDM and did all in one shot. It hardly took 2 hours. The same we presented to the clients in our weekly call. Got appreciation as well for that. Yes, just to summarize, even though we have huge datas, this helps us to fetch the results too easily. Thanks.

  • We also blacklist the applications that creates any risk when triggered incident for us.
  • It is a very convenient for us to handle as it gives an excellent security, even if we run any queries in the background.

Cons
Jamf Software, LLC
  • I would like to see some more advanced functions for the iOS supervised mode. Maybe pushing iOS updates? Right now we can only see if it requires an update, but can't schedule an update time, etc.
  • I would like to see Jamf Now work with Apple to allow apps with in-app purchases that can be used with Jamf Now. Right now some apps don't have two versions available in the app store (a full version, and a free version with in-app purchases), so the single version free app with in-app purchases can't be used across our enterprise environment. :(
  • They could do with a better lost device activation lock. Currently, you can only lock a device from being erased and re-setup if you associate an icloud account with it and turn it on to find the lost device.

  • At times whitelisting the applications creates a problem, now it has been improved more.
  • No editable option once the data saved.
  • License issue has been occurred initially. Even though license was there, we couldn't use it properly. Slow it recovered.

No body is perfect and occasionally, but rare, it take a little bit to get a reply on the chat, but overall as compared to other chat sessions it is pretty responsive and fairly quick. They allow you to upload a screen shot if that helps and to reply with solutions via email so I have it as a reference in writing for future problems.

As I said, we can do the task in bulk which is the added advantage in this. At times alerts gets triggered in multiple like 1000 plus. We can't do it manually as it kills time. But by using this, we can do it on bulk within hours. So likewise, we also did in the same way. We can pull reports also from this (excel files). We showcased to clients wherein we got the appreciation also. Really liked. Thanks team!
