About Jamf Protect

Jamf Protect is an endpoint protection software designed to help businesses monitor events across Mac devices and detect, prevent, and resolve threats. The platform notifies administrators about malicious activities across scripts, applications, and users and automatically quarantines files for further analysis.

Features of Jamf Protect include log forwarding, CIS benchmarking, on-device activity analysis, threat intelligence, and more. It uses the MITRE ATT&CK framework, which allows enterprises to analyze collected data, filter suspicious activities based on behavior or customized analytics requirements, and prevent threats from entering the business network.

It provides an API, which lets businesses integrate the system with first and third-party applications, facilitating automation of remediation workflows and threat prevention tasks. It includes a compliance module, which lets supervisors gain insights into devices' health in real-time, regulate compliance in accordance with industry benchmarks and move data to SIEM or existing data analysis tools for further action.

Symantec's M1 and macOS compatibility came into play with our decision to move to Jamf Protect.
The transition was seamless and and well welcomed.

Pros

The setup, deployment and all of its features are easily what I love most about Jamf Protect. Within minutes of approval, we were up and running.

Cons

For our immediate purposes, we did not have any cons about using Jamf Protect. Jamf made everything easy and nothing hard or bad about using or deploying this software.

From purchasing, to deployment, and jamf support, our experience has been great!

From purchasing, to deployment, and jamf support, our experience has been great!

Pros

Like by review title says, I am still learning. There is so much to comprehend in Pro let alone, another integrated product. With that said, the integration is amazing. I love the ease of deployment.

Cons

I would love more help on the "clean up" side for when viruses/malware are found. Protect has already caught some issues, some of which are easy to handle and others I'm at a complete loss and just wipe the device. The pricing for education could use some love. We are paying a premium, which I understand; however, I will be honest that competitors (Mosyle) are tempting for education customers such as ourselves. We love jamf to the core though, so the swap cannot be justified currently.

Reasons for Switching to Jamf Protect

Trying to stay within the Jamf Family. We purchased Connect as well. We run Pro, Connect, and Protect. They are great products and luckily we have leadership that is willing to pay for them. Also, Jamf support and jamf nation are extremely valuable.

Pros

GUI looks nice. I am just not sure what is the best functional use case for it.

Cons

We really haven't gotten the full value of this product. It may be because we're not sure what threats are prevented or what policies are bets practice for our environment.

During the log4j crisis, Jamf Protect was extremely useful. JP was able to detect all the computers that had log4j files, so that we could mitigate those computers.

Pros

I liked the implementation, it was very easy. Basically Jamf has it all set up right "out-of-box".

Cons

The Threats can be hard to create at times, but Jamf Support is very good at helping create them. Often times they will update the threats themselves.

Still the Gold Standard

Reviewed on 19/7/2021

Pros

It is very customizable, and the online community is second to none.

Cons

There have been a few features that have been missing for a long time. For example, renaming a device using user info during deployment.
