Jamf and Google A partnership so strong, you won’t even need to — what’s the word? Oh yeah… Google it.
Jamf deploys Google software on Apple hardware to unite these two ecosystems harmoniously.
Google is a household name for its plethora of consumer products. Search, email and browser offerings have made the Google platform ubiquitous throughout the internet. But often unseen by most consumers is how Google's platform powers infrastructure for schools and enterprises.
Google Workspace, G Suite for Education and Google Chrome are pillars of security and productivity for organizations worldwide.
Chrome Deployment and Management
Whether your workforce is on Mac or mobile devices, a secure and customized browsing experience is made possible with Jamf and Google Chrome.
The browser used by two billion internet users worldwide pairs well with Jamf and Apple. Jamf helps ensure users on Mac, iPad and iPhone have access to an enterprise-managed browser that satisfies users and CISOs alike. Manage settings from within Jamf or seamlessly enroll browsers in Chrome Browser Cloud Management.
Chrome is more than a browser. In this guide, extensions, policies and workflows show how Chrome supports Apple in the enterprise.
Jamf Connect and Google Cloud Identity
Give admins the peace of mind that their hardware and user information are secure — while providing a simplified setup experience for users on the first day of work of school.
Jamf Connect powers Mac account provisioning and authentication with Google Cloud, which allows IT admins to easily set up and manage local Mac accounts and require users to authenticate with their G-Suite credentials. See how Jamf Connect secures and empowers users.
Integrating Jamf Pro or Jamf School and Google Cloud Identity
As more organizations migrate from legacy on-premises directories, Google Cloud Identity customers have access to Google Secure LDAP.
When configured with Jamf, this service allows for authentication during device enrollment, syncing of user information with each managed device, and the ability to leverage this information for scoping.
BeyondCorp Enterprise Conditional Access
This integration between Jamf Pro and Google Cloud BeyondCorp Enterprise allows admins to build a compliance and security framework using contextual attributes such as identity and device information rather than a network perimeter.
By sharing management status from Jamf Pro into access policies, BeyondCorp Enterprise determines if users are authorized to access corporate resources and SaaS applications. Currently in preview with general availability coming soon.
