Apple IT and Security Experts Gather for the 14th Annual Jamf Nation User Conference to Hear the Latest in Security and Device Management
AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Jamf (NASDAQ: JAMF), the standard in managing and securing Apple at work, kicked off its 14th annual Jamf Nation User Conference (JNUC) both virtually and in-person in Austin, Texas. Joined by key partners and customers including Apple, Google and Microsoft, Jamf shared with the largest gathering of Apple admins how its continuous product innovation is bringing together management and security into one integrated platform.
“Jamf’s industry-leading Apple management and security solutions, delivered as an integrated platform, help IT and security teams deliver an experience that is loved by users and trusted by organizations,” said John Strosahl, CEO of Jamf. "We’ve said many times that when Apple innovates, Jamf celebrates. We are so confident in Apple’s continued success that we believe Apple will flip the market over the next decade and be the #1 end-user technology used in the enterprise - and Jamf is the #1 partner to help organizations succeed with managing and securing Apple.”
This year’s JNUC theme focused on the power of AND. Jamf bridges the gap between what Apple provides and the enterprise needs. It’s bringing together management, identity and security required to be successful with Apple at Work. It’s what Jamf calls Trusted Access and it’s an outcome organizations can achieve when they manage and secure their Mac and mobile devices with Jamf, regardless of if they are for a person or a purpose.
Key highlights from JNUC 2023 include:
The Jamf Pro 11 series, which brings a more modern, accessible UI, simplified onboarding and continued support for Declarative Device Management
Jamf Pro 11 also supports Apple’s Declarative Device Management including new software update management workflows, which will allow admins in Jamf Cloud to schedule and enforce the latest software updates on managed devices by a specific date and time automatically. Apple announced they are further enhancing enrollment workflows with Account Driven Device Enrollment which will be supported in Jamf Pro 11 for macOS Sonoma and iOS 17.
Additionally, Jamf Pro 11 includes a simplified and more transparent onboarding experience for end users that allows them to monitor app installation progress as they go about their work.

AI-powered functionality to help IT and security teams work smarter not harder
Jamf also shared its vision for how AI will continue to be integrated into its security products. This new AI-powered functionality takes detailed raw telemetry and security alert data, applies the MITRE attack framework and summarizes a friendly explanation along with recommendations for Jamf admins on how to remedy security issues. This exciting feature will be integrating within Jamf solutions in the near future.
Simplifying management and security for the classroom
To further protect students and learning institutions, Jamf has rolled out on-device content filtering within Jamf Safe Internet for supervised iOS and iPadOS 16+ devices. This feature stops both inbound threats and unsafe outbound activity while ensuring greater privacy for students. Jamf is planning macOS support for on-device content filtering later this year.
