Cybersecurity for schools - meet Jamf Safe Internet

Leveraging Jamf Data Policy and features from Jamf Threat Defense functionality, with Jamf Safe Internet soon customers can enjoy a complete purpose-built solution that ensures the right security measures are in place, all without sacrificing the Apple experience.

We believe in an equitable safe internet for all and what better way to celebrate Digital Citizenship Week than with our intention to provide a better online world for education!

The internet provides new opportunities for student learning and growth. It's how they're able to communicate, collaborate, access online classrooms, research for a project, pick up a new hobby and watch their favorite TV show!

If we look at student internet usage over the past 12 months, the amount of time children are online is continuing to grow. While most parents reported that their children used 3 hours or less before COVID we are now we're seeing that most students use 4 hours or more.

But with that level of access to information online comes the need for online security. With an increased number of cyberattacks, combined with the amount of inappropriate content on the internet that students could be exposed to, educational organizations need a solution that keeps students secure while empowering them to use their Apple devices to the fullest.

Meet Jamf Safe Internet. Leveraging Jamf Data Policy and features from Jamf Threat Defense functionality, customers can now enjoy a complete purpose-built solution that ensures the right security measures are in place, all without sacrificing the Apple experience.

This means schools can enforce acceptable usage policies through Jamf Safe Internet and configure and deploy directly to devices. These coming-soon security policies combine best-in-class threat defense and content filtering features that block inappropriate content and malicious attacks so students can learn safely anywhere. Jamf Safe Internet is intended for delivery early next year and will support not only a full range of languages but a full range of devices including iPad, iPhone, Mac, Android and Windows in the future.
