It's well suited for firms with large or growing fleet of devices. I can only say about macOS device management, as for mobile devices we have a different solution. But I had a chance to play around with mobile device management using Jamf on one of the trainings using Sandbox, and I can say that you can totally use it for managing iOS/iPadOS/Android devices as well.

I recommend it for any corporate scenario of companies that have smartphones, tablets, and computers and want to manage them all by controlling what to install, permission to use applications and services, and easily obtaining a report and inventory of everything. We protect against viruses, spam, and the main cyber threats and also physical security against theft. Data can be erased from the cloud from anywhere, and we prevent data theft. It is compatible with all operating systems, and Sophos technical support is available worldwide.

Jamf Pro is also great for creating plans called PreStage Enrollments that allow for computers to skip many of the setup screens, as well as automating account creation. Jamf Pro in combination with Apple Automated Device Enrollment (formerly DEP) allows for devices to supervised and managed, this combination allows for locking, remote wipe of devices, and finding locations of devices when put into lost mode.

Read full review Cons Training options are terrific, but costly. Finding what you need in Jamf Pro can be tough at times. The interface is not what I would call friendly. You'll need static credentials for Jamf Pro. They don't integrate with the Jamf Account, and it doesn't offer 2FA. SSO is an option, but it's not simple to set up.

We stepped away and are looking at different products that integrate with our entire fleet MDM solution rather than focusing specifically on Apple products. An all in one solution fits our needs better and is more cost-effective in the long run. Jamf Pro needs to improve some features and support but overall its a good product.

Jamf Pro has done pretty much anything we've needed with little setup headache. If we hit a wall, the Jamf user community and tech support departments both are more than willing to help solve problems. Tech support is excellent, but the surprising thing is the user base is by far the biggest resource. Jamf users love to help each other, by directly chatting about issues, posting best practices, or just posting info on the forums.

Jamf Support is very responsive and usually assists in any challenge we are tackling. They are also very transparent when they are allowed to be. I personally love our Jamf Pro support rep and don't fear messaging their support team.

The training session was beneficial because it expanded my knowledge about Jamf products and really learn what I am capable of doing with Jamf Pro in terms of managing Apple computers and devices. Immediately after the training course, I was able to implement what I learn to our cloud instance.

We have a two-page document [that] identifies all the key features and functionality that we rely on while using Jamf Pro to manage our Mac fleet. Each time we're asked to compare and contrast other client management platforms, they all come up quite short of being able to provide the same functionality that we rely on with Jamf Pro. From there we then have to consider [the] cost for additional products to fill the gap, or lower our users' expectations. That is a non-starter.

Personally, haven't seen any other MDM on the market, but I feel since Sophos is greatly known to have easy to use products, that the others may not be as easy to use as Sophos Mobile Control. One of the key factors for organizations to choose Sophos Mobile Control and Security is because the Android OS (most attacked OS on the planet) is protected with award-winning antivirus and anti malware from Sophos. We have seen as advisors, how unprotected customers, get huge telecom bills because of the lack of security, since they think that an Android OS is healthy enough... big mistake. One simple thing I always tell friends, family and customers, protect your Android device with Sophos Security (it's free for home users).
Read full review Return on Investment Jamf Pro has allowed us to minimize the time it takes to deploy devices. We can use zero-touch deployment methodologies which allow devices to go directly to end users and allow end users to get up and running without needing IT's help. We have implemented both a third-party & macOS patching service, which allows us to ensure all apps and versions of macOS are updated and secure.
