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.
"Jamf Pro allows us to manage all Apple devices from a single interface, making it easy to deploy and configure software, set policies, and inventory devices."
"The Automated Device Enrolment is great!"
"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."
"The ease of use and access allows us to manage all of our devices collaboratively."
"There is also zero-day support to all new Apple OS."
"The action and trigger is the main thing for us. We like the kind of repetitive script which we can use there."
"I have found the most valuable feature to be the policies."
"The self-service is invaluable to the user."
"The performance is good, and it is easy to configure."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the tracking of the devices."
"The most valuable feature depends on the use case of the clients. However, one feature I like is the Kiosk Mode. In the Kiosk Mode in most cases, the clients only can make available one application developed by the solution and permit the employee or the final client to use only this one application for interaction. This provides a security control layer limiting only one application functionally."
"VMware Workspace ONE is a platform that's really good at monitoring and managing mobile endpoints. It can be set up quickly and implemented easily. Technical support for this solution has always been good."
"The solution can scale."
"Workspace ONE adds a lot of value compared to Microsoft because Microsoft is a late entry into the market, and they're still developing their product from an end-user perspective. Workspace ONE has a slight edge because of AirWatch. VMware has developed its product over a longer period of time, so they have better integrations as a whole solution."
"The most valuable features are the ones that control the leaking."
"The most valuable feature of VMware Workspace ONE is it provides the ability to find out the location of devices and manage end-point solutions when they are deployed, and keep them secure."
"The upgrade process of this solutions could be improved. It is not possible to use Jamf Pro to upgrade devices."
"It would be great for Jamf to provide templates for commonly used tasks like updating an operating system, packaging commonly used apps like Office 365, or enabling FileVault."
"Every once in a blue moon, we wind up with a rarely-seen superbug that takes support weeks to months to solve."
"It would be nice if Jamf added an onboarding tool integrated into Jamf Connect during the automated DEP enrollment workflow. It would also improve the user experience if Jamf integrated native macOS notifications, with the option to interact within the notification center."
"For Windows, we have a reset option. We'd that option available for Mac."
"We face issues when we do not have a script and have to write a script, we need to create extension attributes."
"The solution needs cheaper training."
"The cheaper Jamf School is also a product that has been acquired and decked out to meet more educational needs for a good price. Some features of Jamf School aren't (yet?) available in Jamf Pro and for educational users/customers of Jamf Pro, it would beneficial to have these available in the Pro version too."
"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."
"Patching, fixing, and training for VMware Workspace ONE are areas that need to be improved."
"I would like to see more service notifications."
"There should be better compatibility with Linux devices."
"We'd like to see a better connection to Microsoft Azure and a better connection with Check Point."
"VMware Workspace ONE for the new users or the new clients that they try to procure and learn it, there can have difficulties. It does not have user-friendly portals. The portal seems to be more user-friendly in Microsoft solutions."
"The bigger vendors like VMware, Insight, and MobileIron can assign engineers to customers. You can work with them to develop the right competency to use the product."
"They need a more flexible pricing model."

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."
