Jamf is user-friendly and easy to set up. It allows Ipads to be managed in easy-to-understand groupings. It also allows teachers to take ownership of choosing and distributing apps. The safety features for students allow restricting of websites, apps, and even clearing some of the "clutter" of built-in IOS apps that you don't want on students screens such as news and measuring apps. I really enjoy using this product.

Symantec Web Security Service monitors and filters network traffic to protect web servers from cyberattacks. Its single dashboard view, excellent UI/UX, and easy DLP integration make it a market leader. Excellent sandboxing for safe browsing in restricted IT networks. Threat categorization and stateful SSL description of web traffic to identify dynamic threat vectors. However, alerts and notifications only work quickly when large-scale DDoS attacks happen.
