Why manage Microsoft for Mac?

In short: users want choices, and when they have the choice, they overwhelmingly prefer Mac. They prefer the Microsoft productivity tools they already know combined with the reliability and ease-of-use of Apple products.

Organizations can attract and retain top talent by offering Mac, and they can help staff do their best work while they’re at it.

The history of managing and deploying Office for Mac

In the past, Microsoft software was limited on a Mac, and integrating the software with Apple hardware was an imperfect solution. Organizations often had to manually download Office applications and deploy individually to each user — and monitoring, maintenance and patching were time-consuming and painstaking.

A new dawn in Office 2019 for Mac and Office 365 for Mac

Thanks to Jamf’s streamlined Apple integration, IT managers can shake off the yoke of history for good. Jamf Pro’s partnership with Microsoft provides a secure compliance solution for managed Macs accessing Office 365 applications hosted in Azure Active Directory (AD).
