According to the company, Jamf Safe Internet allows administrators to enforce acceptable-use policies without sacrificing the learning experience.
Apple has a strong presence in the education market, Jamf observed, noting that Jamf Safe Internet is the only Apple-first, education-focused cybersecurity solution that ensures students can navigate the internet safely.
Student privacy is assisted by the choice to prevent rather than inspect.
"Jamf is committed to maintaining compliance with all applicable privacy regulations and has signed the [US] Student Privacy Pledge, highlighting its commitment to protecting the information of students, parents and teachers in schools," the company said.
Teachers and IT admins can customise and create content controls to suit each class, thus helping prevent harmful and inappropriate content from reaching student devices.
Jamf Safe Internet features a new, streamlined administrative console with workflows built specifically for schools, and provides out-of-the-box integration with Jamf School and Jamf Pro.
“With technology now firmly embedded in the student experience, there is a growing need for digital safety to eliminate cyberattacks and prevent students from accessing unsafe content. Jamf combines best-in-class network threat prevention and a vast content-filtering database to block unsafe and malicious content so that students can safely learn online from anywhere,” said Jamf senior director of education strategy Suraj Mohandas.
