Mobile device management tool Jamf Now introduced Custom Profiles Tuesday. The upgrade aimed to provide additional flexibility and device management power to users.
Unlimited Configurations Available in Jamf Now
Custom Profiles became available for Jamf Now, the Apple device management company’s tool for small and medium-sized businesses. They are available through its Plus Plan. The new addition made unlimited configurations available. It goes beyond the seven different configuration categories available in Blueprints:
- Web Clips
- Single App Mode
The company said these options allow customers to deploy a more detailed profile. Tad Johnson, director of product strategy for Jamf Now, explained:
Custom Profiles will allow our Jamf Now customers the benefit of unlimited configurations, without sacrificing the simplicity of the Jamf Now Blueprints user interface.
To deploy a configuration, users create a custom profile in a tool such as Apple Configurator, Profile Manager, or Profile Creator. Configurations are uploaded to and deployed to all Apple devices associated with that that Blueprint.
