Create a foundation for Apple success.

The first thing you need after purchasing your Apple hardware is device management. Why? Apple devices on their own provide opportunities to users, but how do you expand these opportunities and scale to 100, 1,000 or 100,000 users?

From zero-touch device deployment to app management to enterprise mobility management, the Jamf platform empowers you with the tools you need to maximize and customize every Apple device for every user.

Zero-Touch Deployment

Zero-touch device deployment is by far the easiest and most efficient way to deploy devices with Jamf and Apple Business Manager or Apple School Manager.

Once enrolled in one of these Apple deployment programs, Jamf goes to work to configure new devices without requiring hands-on support from you. All the user needs to do is 1) open box 2) power on — there is no step 3.

BYOD User Enrollment

Personally-owned devices can be enrolled with User Enrollment, which is designed to keep corporate data safe while protecting users’ privacy. User Enrollment keeps personal and institutional data separate by associating a personal Apple ID with personal data and a Managed Apple ID with corporate data, allowing for limited management of devices using a set of configurations associated with the user, not the entire device.
