Jamf Protect is being used on our fleet of Apple M1 Processor MacBooks Pros and Airs. This is due to the compatibility of our current anti-virus solution. It is being used school(School of Medicine) wide and will continue to for the near future. It addresses compliance for day one deployments of M1 processor machines that are purchased.
  • Onboarding and Setup
  • Integration with Jamf Pro
  • Deployment to already deployed machines
  • Threat Remediation
  • The cloud GUI. It can be confusing at times.
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.

Security has never been more important nor more challenging. Jamf Protect allows us to leverage Apple's built-in malware protections in new and more advanced ways. It gives us great reporting, allows us to proactively take action, and set custom rules for various situations. Most of all, it integrates very nicely with our Mac management system, Jamf Pro.

We use Jamf Protect on all our Macs. It works quietly and efficiently behind the scenes. Our users love that it does't bother them with prompts yet does its job very well.

The biggest benefit for us is that Jamf Protect allows us to give users admin access. Catalina and Big Sur are a lot harder to use without admin access. Jamf Protect adds a strong layer of protection that means a user with admin access who makes a foolish choice will not be able to install malware. Jamf Protect and Apple's security system will detect the malware, block it, and notify us of the issue. It has reduced our need for help desk tickets and more than paid for itself.
  • 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
  • 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.
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.
