Jamf Announces Day-Zero Support for Apple’s Release of macOS Mojave

MINNEAPOLIS – Sept. 24, 2018 Jamf, the standard in Apple ecosystem management, today announced it is prepared with both compatibility and key feature support for Apple’s release of macOS Mojave, which became generally available today. Jamf is proud to now support all of Apple’s fall releases of iOS 12, tvOS 12 and macOS Mojave. For over a decade, Jamf has offered day-zero support for all Apple releases, ensuring customers and end users can take advantage of new Apple technology as it becomes available. Today, Jamf helps more than 17,000 global organizations succeed with Apple.

Continued Compatibility

When customers upgrade to the latest Apple operating systems, IT administrators can be confident their mobile device management (MDM) workflows will be uninterrupted. Through extensive testing in Apple’s beta programs, Jamf ensures compatibility for Apple’s release of macOS Mojave.

User Data Protection

The Jamf management framework will continue to work on macOS Mojave without interruptions. The new user data protections introduced in macOS Mojave will be supported by whitelisting the Jamf management framework automatically.

New Management Features

Admins can take advantage of new management functionality in these releases, such as preventing proximity-based password sharing requests, using OAuth for Exchange account authentication and skipping new Setup Assistant steps found in macOS Mojave.

Managed Software Updates

Admins will be able to defer a major macOS update for up to 90 days or restrict the update from taking place until they choose to upgrade, allowing them to deploy software that has been fully tested. This ensures IT has control over the upgrade process while balancing the need for security and the desire for end users to use new features.
