Jamf Connect

Streamline Mac authentication and identity management.

About Jamf Connect

Jamf Connect leverages a single cloud identity on any Apple device to gain immediate access to the resources your users need.

While using Jamf Connect, a user can unbox their Mac, power it on and access all of their corporate applications after signing on with a single set of cloud-identity credentials.

With account provisioning, you can reimagine your end users' login experience with a simple and seamless process to get going on their Mac. Jamf Connect supports cloud-identity providers such as Okta, Active Directory, Google Cloud and Apple's customized enrollment feature.

Through identity management, you'll know the who, when and where of access to your organization's devices and information giving IT teams peace of mind when security vulnerabilities are everywhere.

Finally, get hassle-free account management so that account logins and passwords are forever in sync. By leveraging a single identity to unlock everything a user needs to get the job done, IT teams can eliminate password-related help desk requests and deliver one harmonious end-user experience.


Key benefits of Jamf Connect

Account Provisioning

  • Improved login experience with a single set of credentials across your users’ cloud-identity provider and Mac. Jamf Connect extends this to cloud-identity providers and keeps them in sync indefinitely.

  • Organized Mac fleet for IT to manage — all users are consistently using their cloud-identity credentials (username and password) across their devices and applications.

  • Multifactor authentication with each and every login, ensuring the right person is on the right machine.

    Identity Management

  • Admins have the ability to track and monitor what devices are being accessed, from where and by whom.

  • Ability to create multiple IT admin accounts that can leverage cloud-identity provider (IdP) permissions to log in as an admin to any machine, eliminating the security risk of having one static IT account.

  • Admins can enforce password policies via the IdP, maintaining consistency and security of devices and users.

    Password Sync

  • Synchronize passwords between the cloud-identity provider and the local Mac account.

  • Make it easy to report on which cloud-identity accounts are being used on each machine.

    Streamlining account creation and login

    Reviewed on 2021/08/26

    Pros

    Our users simply open the sealed box, and after the traditional setup, are prompted to enter their IDP Credentials. Now their local account and password matches what is in the IDP. If the user changes their password somewhere other than their Mac, Jamf Connect detects and remediates the change on their Mac too.
    If your org requires FileVault 2 encryption to be enabled, Jamf Connect and ensure the device is encrypted, with the key being escrowed, before any user has created their account.

    Cons

    While Jamf only supports Apple Devices, our Windows users get jealous of the speed in which we can deploy and provision Macs to our users.

    All in All the product fits well within your company if you have chosen the right applications to integrate with that.

    Pros

    The easy management of the product is absolutely one of the best advantages of the product.

    Cons

    Compared to other solutions it was a little more expensive, but if you want great software with professional support it will be worth the money.

    fair, I like the ability to control logins and have hands free deployment but this really is only useful for new Mac deployments. I did not even try to move a user to a new Mac, not sure how that would work

    Pros

    The ability to use hands off deployment to new users

    Cons

    I had issues with passwords in my testing. We us AD accounts to access our Mac computers. When Jamf connect setups on a machine that already has and AD mobile account, it makes it local, this does something that when the user changes their ad password the connection between Jamf connect and the Mac will not allow the password to be updated. I had a support ticket and we were unable to resolve this issue. Also, when running updates on a computer the updates do not complete until Jamf Connect has authenticated. I would start updates on Friday, come in on Monday, sign into Jamf Connect, then have to wait 15 minutes for the update to complete.

    Jamf on Macs

    Reviewed on 2024/03/28

    Pros

    Jamf allows us to control access and Single Sign On on our Mac machines. Previous products did not allow the access controls we have with Jamf and we had lots of "rogue machines".

    Cons

    The enrollment process was a bit clunky and users struggled initially. Now that it has been deployed for a while users have adjusted.

    Great Azure Authentication for Mac

    Reviewed on 2021/09/09

    Pros

    Easy to configure and deploy, especially in conjunction with Jamf Pro.

    Cons

    One limitation, which is a flaw in all products in this realm, is that they can not authenticate to enterprise level networks at the login screen without a workaround. There are workarounds, but this is a flaw in macOS.
