Jamf Now, formerly Bushel, is a cloud-based Mobile Device Management (or “MDM”) for the iPads, iPhones and Macs in your workplace. Device management is fast, accessible and affordable, so you can support your users without help from IT.
Jamf points out that without a small business (or even personal) MDM solution, it can take a surprising amount of time to set up all your iPads, iPhones and Macs at work. Using their cloud-based solution, you can remotely configure devices – like setting up WiFi or configuring email – quickly and consistently.
Mobile Device Management is an ongoing task, so it is good to make it as turnkey as possible. This MDM solution helps you to centrally deploy apps, view device details and get a 360 degree view of your inventory. This means that you can assign apps anytime from anywhere and reassign licenses as needed.
Protection is also a key feature of Mobile Device Management. Using Jamf Now you can ensure that sensitive company information that your colleagues access on their Apple devices remain secure. You can remotely enforce passcodes, encryption, and even lock or wipe devices.
Under this MDM plan, your first 3 devices are free. After that, it's just $2 per device per month. And if you have large numbers of devices and are seeking Enterprise Mobility Management rather than Mobile Device Management, then Jamf has a Pro version available for “EMM” which they are rebranding from the earlier name of Casper Suite.
