Advantages of Jamf Protect
The Jamf Protect offers many advantages for protecting your enterprise’s endpoints.
Visibility Into Built-in macOS Security Tools
Jamf Protect provides visibility into a variety of built-in macOS security tools, including FileVault, firewalls, and encryption. This enables organizations to gain a better understanding of their Mac security posture, as well as identify any potential weak points that need to be addressed. Additionally, Jamf Protect can detect malware and other malicious software on the device, ensuring that the device is always secure.
Access to the Jamf Protect web app can be managed by your organization’s identity provider (IdP) and leverages the OpenID Connect protocol.
Having a fleet of Macs in your organization can be a great asset. Still, it also comes with the responsibility of making sure you’re meeting compliance requirements and keeping up with security policies. Jamf Protect provides the visibility you need to track what’s going on in the background and quickly address any risk factors that may arise.
With Jamf Protect, you’ll have access to real-time analytics, giving you a powerful insight into user activity, network and system processes, and more. This knowledge allows you to stay compliant with auditing standards and benchmarks like CIS.
Jamf Protect also provides real-time alerts to analyze activity on the device and proactively respond to threats. This helps to ensure that any malicious activity is detected and addressed quickly before it can do any harm. Additionally, Jamf Protect can detect suspicious processes and list them in the alert, allowing organizations to take action as quickly as possible.
Jamf Protect also lets you gain valuable knowledge about the most critical network and system processes — including user activity — which helps you meet your endpoint auditing compliance goals. This allows IT to investigate, mitigate or remediate as needed immediately.
Jamf Protect allows organizations to open up more capabilities when they combine Jamf’s software with third-party offerings. This allows messaging apps to extend real-time notifications to your smartphone or other mobile devices. Alerts can also be forwarded to your SIEM or dashboard solution, providing better data visualization.
Jamf Protect also works with the apps you already know and trust. This minimizes risk by reporting to your SIEM solution, managing your enterprise’s authentication process through an Identity Provider (IdP) and visualizing endpoint health data on customized dashboards.
Also, Jamf Protect system extension is protected by Apple’s native System Integrity Protection (SIP). This reduces Jamf Protect’s exposure to tampering on computers.
Auditing Against CIS Benchmarks
Jamf Protect also audits against CIS benchmarks, ensuring that organizations are adhering to best security practices. This supports organizations to ensure that their security posture is up to par and that their Mac devices are as secure as possible. Additionally, Jamf Protect can provide reports on the audit results, allowing organizations to identify any areas where they need to improve easily.
Keeping Corporate Data Secure
Finally, Jamf Protect helps to keep employees secure and happy by providing best-in-class protection for Mac. Additionally, Jamf Protect provides users with the tools they need to protect their data, helping to ensure that their work is always secure, even when they are working on confidential data.
Jamf Protect is the perfect complement to the robust security features already present in macOS. By supporting the latest Apple software and hardware on the day of release, Jamf Protect helps ensure your devices are up-to-date and secure, enabling you to upgrade on your terms.
