Magnifying glass clarifies settings and device security just like Jamf provides.

In today's digital landscape, safeguarding your organization's critical apps and business data is more critical than ever. As IT admins and security professionals, you understand the unique challenges of managing and securing Apple devices within your environment. That's why we've introduced a new feature to Jamf Security Cloud (JSC) bringing security and management even closer together by leveraging Jamf Pro’s API.

How this innovative feature benefits your organization

Granular Access Control leverages security and management

Jamf Security Cloud, your portal for Jamf Protect web threat prevention and Jamf Connect ZTNA capabilities provides granular control over the criteria about who and what devices can access your business apps, network, resources and URLs. By combining these security capabilities with the best-in-class management features of Jamf Pro, you can now define access policies based on existing device groups from your Jamf Pro instance — at the click of a button. This ensures that only trusted users, on trusted devices that are safe and compliant, can connect to your network and resources, reducing the risk of unauthorized access and potential security breaches.

Dynamic Trust Evaluation

Traditional access control methods often rely on static parameters, making them susceptible to exploitation by sophisticated attackers. By implementing dynamic trust evaluation, and continuously assessing the trustworthiness of devices and users based on real-time data and behavior analytics, you are steps closer to achieving a zero-trust solution for Apple. This proactive approach brings together management, security and identity, enabling you to identify and mitigate security threats before they escalate, safeguarding your organization's assets effectively.

Seamless User Experience

While robust security measures are essential, they should not come at the expense of user experience. Those who choose Apple expect the much-vaunted Apple experience. The only way to achieve this is to use a vendor which:

  • builds upon Apple’s framework
  • focuses on the ecosystem
  • seamlessly integrates with existing workflows

Jamf upholds the user experience by ensuring that authorized users can access resources without unnecessary friction. Leveraging Apple’s push notifications keeps users updated on the security of their devices, striking the right balance between security and usability. The seamless experience between Jamf Pro and Jamf Security Cloud is another example of how we strive to keep employees empowered and productive while maintaining a secure environment.

Compliance and Audit Readiness

Regulatory compliance is a critical consideration for organizations across various industries. Jamf helps with your path to compliance by providing deep visibility and comprehensive audit trails. With detailed logs and reporting capabilities, you can demonstrate compliance with industry regulations and internal policies, giving you peace of mind while facilitating smooth audits.

Scalability and Flexibility

Whether you're a small business or a large enterprise, Jamf scales to meet your evolving needs. With support for diverse use cases and deployment scenarios, you can customize access policies to align with your organization's requirements. As your organization grows, Jamf grows with you, providing flexibility and adaptability every step of the way.

If you are managing your Mac fleet, then chances are you have smart groups set to meet your unique needs. Well, now you can leverage all those configurations in your Jamf Pro console and simply roll out security policies just like you deploy an app! Maybe it’s time to consider how many mobile devices are accessing your company data. That may be corporate-owned devices, a formal BYOD program or just employees using their personal devices to access company resources. The API between the Jamf Security Cloud and Jamf Pro can make scaling up a breeze, bringing mobile devices into your existing tools to mitigate risk and provide visibility into all the devices that are a gateway into your organization.
