Jamf boosts security capabilities

Apple enterprise management specialist Jamf has developed new technologies to help organisations provide an environment that is "enterprise secure and consumer simple".

Jamf's new technologies are being delivered as enhancements to the Jamf Protect product, and two new products, Jamf Trust and Jamf Safe Internet.

The enhancements to Jamf Protect make Jamf the only comprehensive endpoint and network security platform built for Apple, the company claims.

• Network threat prevention: Jamf's macOS endpoint protection now includes detection of network-based indicators of compromise.

• Powerful analytics: Comprehensive logging for both endpoint and network security events helps InfoSec teams isolate and remediate detected threats, and investigate incidents using data collected on the device and from the network. It also provides improved visibility of the IT environment.

• Removable storage: New removable storage controls ensure sensitive business data is only written to encrypted USB mass media drives, thus protecting against physical loss and unauthorised data access.

Jamf Trust supports workflows related to Jamf Threat Defense, Jamf Safe Internet, Jamf Data Policy, and Jamf Private Access (among other Jamf products). It will give users access to security capabilities without impacting device performance or productivity, the company said. Jamf Trust will be available for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, Android and Windows starting in May.

Jamf Safe Internet combines content filtering and network threat prevention, and is aimed primarily at educational institutions. Protection from against malware and phishing attacks is combined with vast content-filtering database. The lightweight technology is said to filter results without invading student privacy or sacrificing the learning experience that Apple devices provide.

Jamf Safe Internet will be available for macOS and iOS this winter.

"Organisations should not have to choose between comprehensive security and exceptional usability in today's work anywhere environments. That's why we are excited to expand on the security capabilities available in the enterprise-secure, consumer-simple platform our customers know and love," said Jamf vice president of portfolio strategy Michael Covington.

"At Jamf, we are rethinking endpoint security to meet the needs of the modern enterprise. We want organisations to confidently send devices into the world that have good baseline configurations that can detect and stop malware compromise, and that are equipped with preventative measures to block inbound attacks like phishing from impacting worker productivity."
