Jamf (Apple Device Management) for IT Staff

Jamf is a cloud-based platform for managing Apple devices. UB has implemented Jamf in a secure shared environment, allowing campus IT staff to manage their UB-owned devices while leveraging a shared library of apps and solutions.

Jamf Features

  • Keep Apple devices secure and up-to-date, providing ease and consistency in configuration.
  • Automatically install applications and configuration settings, or allow your customers to self-install without admin credentials through the Self Service app.
  • Manage devices running macOS, iOS, or tvOS, on or off campus.
  • Remotely track, lock or wipe lost or stolen equipment with industry-standard MDM remote management commands.
  • Collect inventory from managed devices, and deploy software and configuration settings to those devices.

Apple School Manager

Apple School Manager (ASM) is a cloud-based platform for assigning content and devices to a management platform.

  • UB equipment purchased through standard channels after March 1, 2011 is eligible for assignment through Apple School Manager. This is also known as the Device Enrollment Program (DEP).
  • Node admins can use ASM to buy Apps from the AppStore and assign them to Jamf for deployment to devices. This is also known as the Volume Purchase Program (VPP).
