From Chaos to Compliance: Tackling Unmanaged Macs at the University of Glasgow Amid Government Regulations | JNUC 2023

Learn how the University of Glasgow enhanced its Mac management and security using Jamf to meet stringent government standards.

At JNCU 2023, Chris McBride from the University of Glasgow and Rob Potvin from Jamf discussed the university's journey in consolidating Mac management and security. Facing the challenge of managing 5,000-8,000 Macs, they needed to inventory devices, ensure health, and standardize security. They adhered to the UK's Cyber Essentials, meeting government standards for funding. Utilizing Jamf's Premium Pilot, they achieved seamless onboarding, user enrollment, and device management. This approach led to the replacement of outdated technology, improved security posture, and effective identity management with Jamf Connect and Microsoft Entra.
