Pros
"Jamf is stable, reliable, secure and you have lots of customization options.""My team use this solution to provide end-to-end support on our managed Mac fleet. This includes doing OS updates and upgrades, application deployments, configuration settings and outlining.""The zero-day support regarding new Apple hardware and Apple operating systems is very good.""The solution has good integration with Google and has high performance for our Mac fleet of devices.""Having the ability to automate our workflows has been great.""The most valuable feature is the ability to manage all devices through Apple's DEP and forcing them into Jamf pre-stage enrollment.""Jamf cut the time it takes to deploy a new machine to a new user.""It's a scalable product."

"VMware Workspace ONE has been stable so far.""It is like any other mobile solution. It gives us the ability to control remotely, and that is what we like. We can wipe out and deploy remotely.""From a remote management perspective, I like the management and the inventory.""The most valuable feature of the solution is that it enables us to remotely manage the devices, which is its purpose, and to push applications to the mobile devices from the portal.""The most valuable feature is policy-driven control of the devices.""The Identity component of this solution is its most valuable feature.""The most valuable features of VMware Workspace ONE are security and having support for all the latest features that are coming out from Apple. They're pretty fast at adopting new features. This is one of the most vital aspects of mobile device management systems.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the multi-platform support."

Cons
"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.""I think there's room for improvement on the automation. For example, uploading a package to Jamf Pro and then updating the policy and other aspects, should be automatic. For instance, if I put a new version of the software, version 11 and the previous one was 10, Jamf Pro should be able to recognize if there's an update and update the policy automatically. It's not a big deal, but I think there's room for improvement.""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 would like to see Jamf add more training tutorials and documentation.""I can only say that I would love to see a more customizable dashboard.""We had some issues with its integration with other products, such as Intune. There were some issues with the way you have to register your device into Intune.""One of the big areas in need of improvement is automated device naming for computers.""I would like to see tighter integration with Jamf Protect in the future releases of Jamf Pro."

"VMware Workspace ONE platform offers support for Mac Books and we see that there is some room for improvement in that area versus all the products out there.""The pricing could always be better.""I would like to see more service notifications.""There is no Apple zero-day support for updates.""The SaaS environment is not very responsive at times, so the performance can be improved in that regard.""From an identity perspective, there is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to integration with other solutions. I would say it needs more capabilities in terms of direct integrations, including cloud identity solution integrations.""When it comes to deployment and maintaining security, there should be an integrated console where you have a singular view of all of the products from the same OEM.""Its performance is quite good on Apple phones or even mid-range phones. If you install an AirWatch on a phone that is not too powerful, you will have performance issues. That's only because the phone is not too powerful, and there is not enough memory, etc. They could do a lighter version for a less powerful phone. It would also be useful for very small companies that don't want to spend money on expensive phones. Having said that, I don't think that is their target market. If their target market is enterprise, all enterprises perhaps have an agreement with Google or Apple, and they would get a phone that has already been tested, and they know that AirWatch will work on that phone."

Pricing and Cost Advice

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer: 
    We have been able to keep our tech department lean and mean, maximizing our efficiency by utilizing Jamf to set up our iPads for us, rather than installing each app one at a time.
    Top Answer: 
    Cloud is worth the small increase in price, but make the switch before you need it, and not during a global pandemic.
    Top Answer: 
    Every once in a blue moon, we wind up with a rarely-seen superbug that takes support weeks to months to solve. The good news is that they are rare and not across the platform. Just us.
