Good patch management process, and works well with Windows, but does not work well with Apple devices
The primary use case of Microsoft Intune is for patch management and app deployment. Microsoft Intune is deployed in a hybrid environment and we use Atel cloud I can see that the patch management process is much improved with the bundled patch management option available in Microsoft Intune…

Offers same-day support, ease of support and easy to setup
I use it to manage MacBooks The challenge before was no management solution. So, we addressed almost all the issues with Jamf. Patch management has simplified some processes. The ease of support is also one of the solutions. It's easier for engineers to support MacBooks. I like the same-day…

An easy-to-manage and deploy solution, but it should provide open customization
Kandji is mostly meant for the Apple ecosystem and Apple devices You don't need a certification or great knowledge to manage and deploy the solution because it's not complex. It's a very easy plug-and-play solution where you can just enroll the devices and choose the features you want. Kandji…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"At the moment, Autopilot is the most valuable feature."
"For our office workers who are not based in Norway, when we order the PC, we can do some of the settings for them. These are standardized settings. We can set them up exactly as they are in Norway so that they're the same."
"It is a very helpful solution."
"One of the most valuable aspects of Microsoft Intune is its seamless integration with Azure Active Directory, offering capabilities akin to Group Policy Objects."
"Stable product that's easy to set up compared to other MDM products."
"If the product works, remote access will be a benefit. To this point we have not had reason to have confidence in achieving that access."
"Technical support, in general, has been quite helpful."
"The most valuable feature is the UEM capabilities."
"The solution has good integration with Google and has high performance for our Mac fleet of devices."
"To have a zero-touch setup for the Macs and iPhones is more valuable than one can think."
"It's a scalable product."
"It is a great tool. Its ease of use is fantastic. It is very simple, and you don't really have a high learning curve with this."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to manage all devices through Apple's DEP and forcing them into Jamf pre-stage enrollment."
"Microsoft SSO integration allows us to set up email remotely for users without them having to do anything other than entering their password."
"If you want to manage macOS devices in your enterprise and want to make it as easy for the user as well as for the administrators, you should use the DEP with Jamf Pro."
"I like the ability to modify it to suit our environment and the fact that, since it's an Apple-dedicated service, the integration is easy."
"It's a very easy plug-and-play solution where you can just enroll the devices and choose the features you want."


"I would like to see micro VPN. I like the way that some of the other providers have done something similar where, as you open that app on an end-point device, it creates a micro VPN straight into your device, which is quite a nice little feature. Also, Microsoft Intune relies heavily on its fellow products in the suite. It would be nice if Microsoft Intune could stand on its own two feet."
"There are a couple of issues with stability."
"There can be more logs. I do not have any other requirements."
"It needs incorporation of Knox, ZeroTouch, etc."
"It would be helpful if there was proactive remediation."
"For an existing customer who has an SCCM, it would need to be upgraded to an MECM first before I can introduce Microsoft Intune."
"I know that their AI pieces are at the infancy stage, but allowing users to do more tagging for information would be an interesting thing because Intune also directly integrates with Azure. Because a lot of the devices are hosted with that, you also get a lot of tagging of user data and other things like that."
"The pricing could be improved."
"For Windows, we have a reset option. We'd that option available for Mac."
"Jamf does not go beyond Apple."
"I would like to see Jamf add more training tutorials and documentation."
"In some places, GUI could be more reactive."
"I wish there was a profile that could be created for configuring Apple software updates on a global basis for our devices, via a configuration profile."
"Every once in a blue moon, we wind up with a rarely-seen superbug that takes support weeks to months to solve."
"Patch Management needs work to be efficient."
"Jamf could improve versioning as in outright blocking OS upgrades OR improving maintaining every application’s update feature. As of now, only some apps, like Flash, have managed updates."
"Kandji should give open customization."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The price of Intune is often included as part of a bundle with other Microsoft licenses, which makes it somewhat cheaper."
"The pricing is competitive, but it is not cheap."
"While I can't provide insights from a business perspective, it's worth noting that the pricing may differ significantly, and the discount we received might not be reflective of standard business rates."
"Microsoft's licensing is more flexible and adaptive than its competitors."
"The licensing is on a yearly basis."
"I rate Intune an eight out of ten for affordability. It's bundled with the 365 licensing, which is competitive overall."
"The pricing for Intune and the competitor products are all within the same range, there is no true advantage when it comes to cost."
"For organizations that are a Microsoft shop, the pricing is compelling."
"It seems fair. It could be a little bit less, but you have to pay for a product. You can't get something for free. You get what you pay for, so if you put in a little bit of money, you're going to get a good quality product."
"The licensing costs for this solution are high."
"We have signed a licensing contract for three years. There is an option to buy an annual license subscription, but we opted for three years as it came with a 25% or 30% discount."
"This product is surely worth the cost of implementation."
"If you have the in-house capability to support Jamf, then paying for onboarding / JumpStart training is a no brainer."
"Jamf Pro is on the expensive side and could be slightly cheaper."
"With respect to pricing, Jamf Pro is the better bet."
"The total ROI is worth every penny."
"Users have to pay a yearly licensing fee for Kandji, which is expensive."
