Jamf Pro and Jamf Connect now part of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association

Learn how the integration of Jamf Pro and Jamf Connect with Microsoft Entra ID enhances security and the user experience.

It has only been a few weeks since we announced that Jamf is now a member of The Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) based on our integration between Jamf Protect and Microsoft Sentinel. MISA is an ecosystem of independent software vendors and managed security service providers that have integrated their solutions with Microsoft security technology to help customers better defend themselves against increasingly sophisticated cyber threats.

In our recent press release, Vasu Jakkal, CVP Microsoft Security, explained the value and mission of MISA:

“We believe that by coming together as a community to innovate, build strategies, and share knowledge, we empower ourselves and our customers as defenders. That’s why MISA is such a vital part of our mission. Together with our partners like Jamf, we can turn obstacles into innovation and embrace today’s challenges as an opportunity to build a better, safer world for all.”

Today, we are thrilled to announce another significant milestone in our partnership. Jamf Pro and Jamf Connect are now also part of the MISA program! With the integration of Jamf Pro and Jamf Connect with Microsoft Entra ID, organizations can now guarantee that only authorized cloud identities on compliant Apple devices can access critical business applications.

Jamf Pro and Jamf Connect integrate with Microsoft Entra ID

Enhanced management and security for organizations with a Microsoft environment

It is crucial to adopt solutions that prioritize both security and user experience. Combining the best of management and identity and access management, Jamf Pro and Jamf Connect integrated with Microsoft Entra ID empower organizations to securely control device access and data security. By enforcing Microsoft conditional access policies on macOS, iOS and iPadOS devices, businesses can implement real-time remediation workflows to keep corporate data secure, regardless of where an employee and their device is located.

Streamlined user experience for uninterrupted workflows

User experience is a crucial aspect of any solution. Jamf's partnership with Microsoft through our integrated solutions in the MISA program aims to strengthen the Trusted Access experience that users love and organizations can trust. Zero-touch onboarding and automated device enrollment ensures all devices are enrolled and under management, while single sign-on (SSO) and multi-factor authentication (MFA) through Microsoft Entra ID allows for authentication and authorization into Jamf consoles and products, reducing the risk of unauthorized access.

Enforce delivery of Microsoft certificates on managed Apple devices

If you would like to enforce the delivery of Microsoft certificate-based authentication on managed Apple devices, Jamf Pro and Jamf Connect allow organizations to ensure that their devices possess the necessary certificates to meet compliance standards. This added layer of security mitigates potential vulnerabilities and strengthens the overall security posture of the organization.

Together, Jamf and Microsoft are driving innovation and delivering unparalleled security for Apple devices in the modern workplace.
