Jamf and Google announce conditional access partnership preview

The new preview between Jamf Pro and Google Cloud BeyondCorp enables admins to build a compliance and security framework around end-user devices rather than a network perimeter. Read on for more details.

Expanded partnership brings conditional access to more admins

Enterprise work environments have undergone dramatic change in a year that has seen more digital transformation than any in recent memory. To help IT admins more effectively manage access to company resources in a distributed work environment, Jamf and Google are excited to announce an expanded partnership that will help more admins ensure security telemetry, such as whether a device is managed or corporate-owned to aid in policy evaluation and creation via Context Aware Access.

Conditional access and the enterprise

The new preview between Jamf Pro and Google Cloud BeyondCorp enables admins to build a compliance and security framework around end-user devices rather than a network perimeter. This is especially important in the current remote-first world where many end users are working from home.

Conditional access is one of the best ways that enterprise IT admins can effectively control access to sensitive company resources while still delivering a quality end-user experience. By sharing management status from Jamf Pro, Google can determine if a device is compliant and ready to access corporate resources.

Customers looking to preview this new integration will need a Jamf Pro account and a Google Admin account. For more information or to set up the integration, please email google.ca@jamf.com.

Better together

Jamf is working to extend its device compliance capabilities for organizations leveraging Google Cloud and BeyondCorp. In the past, organizations have expressed concerns about unprotected Mac devices accessing cloud and on-premises resources. Now, through a unique Jamf preview, customers can ensure that only trusted users, from managed devices, using approved apps, are accessing company data. Contact the Jamf team to learn more about this preview or get started by going to the Jamf Marketplace.
