MINNEAPOLIS – September 24, 2019 – Jamf, the standard in Apple management, today announced it is prepared with both compatibility and key feature support across its product portfolio for Apple’s release of iOS 13, which became generally available on September 19, along with iPadOS 13 and tvOS 13, which became generally available today. For nearly a decade, Jamf has delivered day-zero support for all Apple releases to ensure customers and end users can take advantage of new Apple technology in their school or business as it becomes available. Today, Jamf helps more than 30,000 global organizations succeed with Apple.
When customers upgrade to the latest Apple operating systems, they can be confident their mobile device management (MDM) workflows with Jamf will be uninterrupted. Through extensive testing in Apple’s beta releases, Jamf ensures compatibility for Apple’s iOS, iPadOS and tvOS release across its Jamf Pro, Jamf School and Jamf Now products.
New Feature Support to Improve User Experience and Ensure Privacy and Security
In addition to compatibility, Jamf offers support for key new features that improve the user experience, while upholding privacy for end users and ensuring organizational security.
User Enrollment– Jamf Pro and Jamf School support Apple’s new User Enrollment framework, giving admins a new way to efficiently and securely manage devices while protecting their users’ privacy for devices that are not institutionally-owned. Apple has provided a curated set of management capabilities specifically designed for BYOD. Jamf Pro led the market by previously limiting what information an admin could see about “BYOD” devices, and supporting User Enrollment is another step forward in how Jamf admins can ensure workplace security while also enabling employees to access work email and apps on their personal devices.
Enrollment Customization– Jamf Pro and Jamf School now support Enrollment Customization, a secure and automated enrollment experience that also delivers new user-friendly personalized customization options like a welcome screen and support for modern authentication during iOS enrollment. Jamf admins can now easily configure “PreStage Panes” to display user agreements, authentication prompts and other content in the Jamf interface to deliver a more secure and even better out-of-the-box user experience.
Single Sign-On – As organizations scale their Apple ecosystems, users often end up having to sign in more frequently to third-party software. Jamf is helping power a better user experience by streamlining the number of times they need to sign into third-party software through new single sign-on extension configuration options in Jamf Pro and Jamf School. The iOS payloads make Jamf Pro and Jamf School ready for simplified sign-in as app developers add support this fall.
“It is critical to Jamf’s mission of helping organizations succeed with Apple that we empower them to upgrade to the latest OS from the moment it is available,” said Dean Hager, CEO, Jamf. “Whether a customer wants to immediately adopt new operating system features or take time to test compatibility before deployment, Jamf’s commitment to day-zero support helps them advance the world-class Apple experience that end users crave.”
Jamf Now delivers on day-zero compatibility support and continues its mission to deliver the most streamlined and accessible MDM experience in the world. The Jamf Now Plus plan – designed to give more advanced users the power they need – also recently added support for Custom Profiles, unlocking new configuration workflows.
Jamf is committed to enabling IT to empower end users and bring the legendary Apple experience to businesses, education and government organizations via its product portfolio, and the 85,000 members of Jamf Nation. Today, 30,000 global customers rely on Jamf to manage 15 million Apple devices. To learn more, visit: https://www.jamf.com.
