Jamf Pro is a tool for centrally managing university-owned Macs and iOS devices.
Jamf Pro is an industry-leading software tool for centrally managing university-owned Macs and iOS devices. With Jamf Pro, ITS is able to push out software updates to your computer and proactively respond to security threats. Whenever ITS sets up a new Mac, we will enroll it in Jamf Pro.
Jamf Pro provides a number of benefits including the following:
- Easy enrollment so ITS can set up new Macs faster than ever
- Patch management to ensure that your Mac is up to date with the latest security and feature updates
- Automated delivery of software via a Self Service application
- Remote assistance tools to facilitate faster resolution of issues without a deskside visit
You will know that your Mac is enrolled in Jamf Pro if the Self Service app icon appears in the Dock on the bottom of the screen:
The Jamf Pro Self Service app allows ITS to offer you software, printers, macOS updates, and other items, in a controlled environment for you to complete on your own time. It appears similar to the Apple App Store and is installed in the Applications folder on your Mac. A screenshot of the app appears below. To learn more, see the Jamf introductory video.
