JamF Pro vs VMware Workspace One
We performed a comparison between JamF Pro and VMware Workspace One based on our users’ reviews in four categories. After reading all of the collected data, you can find our conclusion below.
Comparison Results: JamF Pro is a PeerSpot user favorite due to dynamic features such as zero-touch deployment, numerous API integrations, Automated Device Enrollment, and device lost mode retrieval. JamF Pro is easily customizable, easy to deploy, and is an excellent tool for those organizations heavily vested in an Apple ecosystem. The consistently excellent service they provide makes it a solid, reliable solution.
"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."
"It's as easy as procuring the licensing for the apps and then setting it to the volume purchasing back in Jamf."
"Microsoft SSO integration allows us to set up email remotely for users without them having to do anything other than entering their password."
"Automating the refresh of the devices is huge for both sides of the end-user experience."
"Jamf Pro is the only product we can use at the moment because they are ahead of their competitors in zero-touch deployment for the end-user. Jamf Pro has a self-service feature that has helped us minimize our support cases. That's a feature the customers like very much."
"Jamf has made it achievable for us to easily deploy & manage Apple devices anywhere in the world, without the need for hands-on assistance from IT staff."
"We found the initial setup to be simple."
"The ease of use and access allows us to manage all of our devices collaboratively."
"Good device management and good integration with third parties."
"The location and remote management services are the most valuable."
"The most valuable feature is the security policies."
"The contained browser is a good feature."
"If an end-user has an issue with a device, the administration has the ability to remote access the device after approval from the end-user."
"The most valuable feature of VMware Workspace ONE is the support for multiple devices. Not only iOS, and Android, but all kinds of platforms, including VR device management. Additionally, it has a tunneling feature, which no other solution provides. Other solutions have to integrate with other tools to have this functionality, whereas VMware Workspace ONE has its own application gateway tunnel."
"We recently integrated Workspace ONE with our intelligence report, and this is a great tool from a reporting point of view. In our daily business, we get several requests from businesses to provide an Adobe request for monitoring, whether it is for Android or iOS devices. The main benefit of this tool is that we can exclude the report for applications."
"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."
"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."
"There should be an option for exporting the data for reporting purposes so that we can give that to the higher-ups, such as CIO. We should be able to see bar graphs and charts on different data points. It would be great to have a good reporting tool to look at, for example, data points of how many versions of Adobe Acrobat we have in our environment in a bar graph or pie chart. They don't have anything like that. There is an application called Tableau Reader, which does statistics, and you can put a statistical or analytical aspect in there to extract data and share it on a graph or a pie chart. Such a tool would be great."
"The integrated patch feature is good but needs some tweaking."
"I would like to have the ability to push scripts using MDM commands."
"I'm not exactly sure where it could be improved off the top of my head, but there is room for improvement."
"Some improvement can be made in the customer service realm, while also making additional training level courses available for online study and exam-taking."
"I would love to see more integration with ASM and ABM."
"The dashboard needs to be customizable."
"There are some bugs that our team needs to work around. It required some API integration required because visitor integration was not there. For example, we are currently working on a tunnel issue, and VMware doesn't have this solution."
"Feature-wise, it is fine, but its pricing could be better, given that Microsoft is on a bundling spree. AirWatch would benefit from reducing the license pricing per user per month."
"We'd like to see a better connection to Microsoft Azure and a better connection with Check Point."
"We'd like more useful support."
"It's not accurate enough when it comes to sending items to end-users."
"The SaaS environment is not very responsive at times, so the performance can be improved in that regard."
"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."
"I would like to see improvements made to both the support, and the pricing."

Reviews from Real Users
Jamf Pro stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Some of these include its app deployment, its easy installation, and the fact that it’s lightweight but powerful. PeerSpot users take note of the advantages of these features in their reviews:
An IT Support Specialist at Visby Medical writes, “The first most valuable feature I found was the ability to simply push out applications to devices, Mac or iPads/iPhones. It's as easy as procuring the licensing for the apps and then setting it to the volume purchasing back in Jamf.”
Another reviewer, a Desktop Engineer at Kroger, notes, “The self-service portal to share scripts and other tasks that have extremely minimized the need for calls to our support teams, or even sharing the applications we package and allowing users to pick and choose what apps they need or want, instead of just blanket installing everything from our old environment.”

Reviews from Real Users
Below is some feedback from our PeerSpot users who are currently using the solution:
PeerSpot user Patrick B., Cybersecurity Architect at a tech services company, says, "Its UI is extremely easy to use whether you're an advanced user or a novice user. When I first opened it up and had to learn the product, I was easily a novice. By the end of the third month, I was digging into the backend of the system and using it as a highly advanced user to accomplish what I needed to accomplish, and I was able to do it through the UI mostly."
Roshan T., Partner Manager North America at a tech company, mentions how satisfied he is with the product, saying, "You can put all your applications on a mobile device, be it a phone or tablet. It is secure and easy to use. Because it is centrally managed, you don't have to do any configuration on the phone. I just got the phone and connected to the central applications. I just downloaded one thing and everything got rolled out. Email, calendar, and other things were deployed centrally. If you don't have AirWatch, you have to configure your phone manually. For example, you need to deploy and configure your email manually and then synchronize everything. It is much simpler when a mobile device is centrally managed."
