"Installing the packages remotely and remote control are the most valuable features. There are around 100 pieces or devices, and the only way to send a package to a device is by connecting to the PC and then manually sending the package. By using Avalanche, we can send a package to all devices with one click. It is very stable and easy to use. Their technical support is also very good. We have implemented this solution for our clients, and they are satisfied with this solution. It does what it is meant to do."
"The most useful feature of Avalanche is remote control — especially the ability to remotely install packages to many devices all at once. When the client has, for example, 100 devices needing updates, it would take far too long to update each device individually. But with Avalanche, we just connect to all the devices through the PC and send the updates out with one click."
"Jamf is stable, reliable, secure and you have lots of customization options."
"The most valuable features are the restrictions, Lost Mode, Self Service, and full implementation of anything Apple will let MDM manage."
"Being able to easily deploy apps and patches to our client computers with minimal hands-on time from our techs has been huge."
"As an administrator, I really love the integration with Apple Business Manager."
"The self-service is awesome for empowering end-users, especially if you don't allow admin rights."
"It is a first-rate product and well known in the industry as the gold standard for Apple device management."
"The user interface is great."
"We can set custom deployments based on every available parameter in macOS."
"Its price could be improved. It could be cheaper. I would like to see a better approach for Android and an easy way to send packages and manage devices."
"Because our clients are all very satisfied with Ivanti from their side, there is little I can say about room for improvement. However, I think that to stay competitive with other solutions offering a similiar solution, Ivanti could look into making their products more affordable."
"The product is pretty good as-is, but if anything could be improved I would say the UI could perhaps be a bit simpler. A mobile app to complement the web-based version, to perform specific tasks, would be nice to have - a good example of what I mean is the "Pulseway" MDM for Windows, they have a very useful and user-friendly mobile app."
"The upgrade process of this solutions could be improved. It is not possible to use Jamf Pro to upgrade devices."
"I think that there should also be more integrations with Jamf that could better the intelligence-gathering when making business decisions."
"Jamf should give the option to download individual device policy logs, as this capability would really help to diagnose issues."
"The patching can definitely use a little bit of improvement. They should make it a little bit more automated."
"I would like to see either a report section or an integration with a new reporting module to allow us to pull real metrics from the system easily."
"I'd like to see Jamf add Unified Endpoint Management, but it's not going to happen. It's too complex. We tried that for so many years, and no one can do this for Windows and macOS. It can be done with iOS, but that's not the case here. If you want device management for a real laptop operating system, you need two systems. They're very different."
"An easier way to deploy Full OS upgrades would be a great start."
