Enterprise Mac company Jamf has acquired Digita Security, bringing native Mac security to its platform.
Digita, a two-year old startup, was founded by a team of security experts led by Patrick Wardle, whose background includes a decade as a Mac security researcher, seeking out vulnerabilities on the Mac, and time at the NSA where he honed his security research skills.
Patrick makes a lot of great Mac tools with Objective See that I recommend.
Over three-quarters of retail IT decision-makers think Apple devices are better than Windows or Android equivalents a survey for Jamf found.
71% of students use or would prefer to use a Mac over a PC according to a new survey, but price is an issue.
Jamf is a mobile device management company for Apple devices. Today it announced the launch of Jamf School.
Jamf School is an Apple education technology solution purpose-built for educators. It wasn’t designed for the expert IT user; instead it was designed with an intuitive interface and workflows to empower teachers to seamlessly manage and use their Apple devices for creating an active learning environment. It joins Jamf Pro to offer schools a solution choice that best fits their needs. With the launch of Jamf School also comes powerful apps.
Jamf is partnering with Google Cloud to make it easier for schools and businesses to authenticate Apple devices.
With Jamf Connect, users can unbox their Apple device, power it on and access their corporate and learning applications after signing on with Cloud Identity (or G Suite) credentials. Additionally, IT admins are more easily able to manage Mac accounts while knowing their hardware and information is secure.
If you’re the family tech support person you’ll want these mobile device management (MDM) tools to help you manage family devices.
