Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The ease of use and access allows us to manage all of our devices collaboratively.""The user interface is great.""Navigation is straightforward. It's not hard to create policies and manage the device. It's a lot simpler to create smart groups, view inventory, and see what the estate looks like.""Jamf cut the time it takes to deploy a new machine to a new user.""One of the most valuable features is the ability to apply apply granular level restrictions to our machines, making them easy to manage remotely from the backend.""Integration with Apple's DEP program and the ability to image systems quickly and efficiently is one of the best features. I use Jamf Pro to push out remote access tools that allow us to help our users with issues that require more "hands-on" than only MDM can provide, which is nice as well.""From the reviews that we are getting, the feedback from the client, the tool is very good on the Jamf side - especially for the Macs.""The DEP enrollment is quite good. We're planning to migrate to the Jamf cloud this month."

"We can do auto patch updates using SOTI. SOTI has been well placed in terms of the number of endpoints it can handle.""The installation is very straightforward.""The remote control we have helps us a lot.""All features are useful. It is useful for preventing the use of unauthorized software on corporate-owned devices. It provides an option to lock the devices for unauthorized software. The devices can only be used under the supervision of the device manager.""The most valuable features are visibility and remote access.""SOTI's most valuable feature has to be mobile device management and visibility through the main console. There's a central dashboard that you can use to monitor the devices and keep track of usage, battery consumption, and battery life.""It is very reliable, and their support is excellent.""The SOTI MobiControl Assist tool is very good for remote controlling devices for troubleshooting. SOTI MobiControl is very helpful."

Cons
"It will be very helpful if we could restore users after they have been removed from Jamf because I have some cases of deleting a computer before unlocking it.""It would be amazing if they would give Apple TV management its own space in Jamf Pro and not just mix it in with devices.""In some places, GUI could be more reactive.""I would like to see tighter integration with Jamf Protect in the future releases of Jamf Pro.""One of the big areas in need of improvement is automated device naming for computers.""The patch management needs improvement in Jamf Pro.""There needs to be a mass policy change tool.""It would be great if we get an email notification when the Mac users install any apps, so IT can be alerted."

"Its user interface needs to be improved.""SOTI MobiControl could improve by being more user-friendly.""There is room for improvement when it comes to the ability to customize devices and choosing what information goes onto them.""In the next release, they should make it easier to migrate.""The solution could use better reporting.""It would be helpful if the product offered more integration and more features around the iOS and macOS platforms.""The pricing policy of SOTI is not stable. You buy it today at one price, and the following year, it becomes something like 5% or 7% higher. From my point of view, SOTI is a little bit weak in terms of implementation on the new Windows 10 devices, and they have to work on this. It can't compete with Intune and other solutions when it comes to Windows implementation. It almost doesn't work with iOS. It works well with Android.""They could make it easier to configure. While setting it up from scratch, I find many networking issues, and I have to call our network people for them, but our network people don't understand. It's a nightmare to try to communicate to them that this port needs to be open, or this needs to be opened here or there. Networking people are very security conscious, and they're wary of doing anything. So, if you can't tell them exactly why they need to do something, they get really paranoid. SOTI could do a better job of making the configuration of their software easier to understand and more clear. The prerequisites should be clear. They should clearly specify what is required to get this software working. There should be a list of prerequisites that is easier to understand and trust."

  • More Jamf Pro Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
  • "Its pricing policy is not stable. The licensing is on a one-yearly, two-yearly, or three-yearly basis. There is no monthly fee."
  • "SOTI is fairly priced. It's not super expensive. If you have a thousand devices that are licensed, it's going to start climbing up in price. Typically, it's like 25 bucks a seat for a year."
