The COVID-19 pandemic has forced millions of Americans to adapt and embrace remote work. For big enterprises with a dedicated IT department, and a larger pool of resources, the transition can be seamless. But, for small and medium-sized businesses with smaller staff and little to no IT support, a litany of technological challenges can be felt, one of which is device management.
Even for businesses that primarily use Apple devices, which are revered for their ease of use and hassle-free syncing, managing each one can still be tough. It’s especially challenging if each employee uses different devices, with each device serving a different purpose.
This is where Jamf Now comes into play. Designed to make Apple device management less confusing and time-consuming, Jamf Now makes Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV device setup easy, so you and your team can spend your valuable time doing other work. It’s a cloud-based mobile device management solution ideal for the Apple devices used in the workplace. It allows you to not only set up devices, but also to take inventory, push apps and settings (think Wi-Fi and email configurations), update devices, and secure them if they are lost or stolen.
Having a process this streamlined means you won’t have to fuss over complicated settings in order to manage your devices the way you want. You can create a Blueprint in the program, which lets you deploy the same set of settings, apps, restrictions, and more for groups of devices within mere minutes. The best part is you don’t need devices on-hand. As long as the devices are enrolled in the software, you can alter settings remotely.
And, now that cybersecurity comes at a premium, Jamf Now also helps you ensure that you have the security settings you need, so each Apple device and the data inside them remains untouchable. You can remotely enforce passcodes, add an extra layer of encryption, and even lock or wipe information from the device if it gets lost or stolen, so it doesn’t become a security threat.
No matter where you or the devices under your supervision are, Jamf Now grants you complete control of them at all times, even without the IT know-how.
If you’d like your organization to enjoy this kind of convenience, Jamf Now offers the opportunity to create an account where you can manage up to three devices — free of charge. You can add more devices later on for only $2 per month for each device.
