Heavy is the head that wears the crown. Everybody wants to be the boss, but once the responsibility of running a business is firmly placed on those untested shoulders, there is a laundry list of decisions and problems that need to be resolved daily.

Jamf Now is one of the ways a small- to medium-size business can make sure some of those pressing problems get handled. It’s an Apple device management platform designed to help companies set up, manage and secure all their iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV devices — even without a dedicated IT staff.

Apple device management made easy

Because let’s face it, many small companies don’t have the resources to hire dedicated IT personnel, even though technology is how businesses of every size and shape get things done these days. That responsibility often falls to the boss, who has business concerns in addition to helping an employee unlock their Apple device or making sure a new hire’s iPad has all the apps needed to do their job.

Jamf wants to help organizations of all sizes succeed with Apple hardware. Jamf Now provides a clean, streamlined environment to help with onboarding, security, inventory and other vital device-management functions for all the Apple gear in your business network.

Managers can sign up, create their Jamf Now account and immediately start taking care of a company’s devices using one simple platform. The service makes it easy to configure devices with all the proper apps, settings and restrictions team members need so they can do their jobs. You can even handle that task remotely, without the device in hand.

Jamf Now users also can set up a host of different profiles. That means, for instance, that you can customize and deploy the specific tools needed by your company’s manufacturing, sales and administrative staffers according to the teams’ varying needs. That includes particular email configurations, Wi-Fi settings, apps and more.

With Jamf Now, security comes built-in

Jamf Now also makes sure your network of devices is always updated, allowing companies to centrally deploy new apps or execute security upgrades all at once. Users also can tackle issues such as passcode reset, activation lock bypass and more on a device-by-device basis.

As for security, Jamf Now helps make sure all your company data stays protected. It utilizes password requirements, disk encryption, two-step verification and a host of other extra protection layers to make sure each and every device in your network remains secure. If a device goes missing, Jamf Now’s Lost Mode can locate it. And if an iPhone or iPad winds up stolen, you can disable it or wipe all its data remotely.
