ENDS Jamf Completes Acquisition of Wandera 2021-07-02T02:58:57Z jamf-completes-acquisition-of-wandera MINNEAPOLIS – July 1, 2021 – Jamf (NASDAQ: JAMF), the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, today announced it has completed the acquisition of Wandera, a leader in zero trust cloud security and access. This acquisition uniquely positions Jamf to help IT and security teams confidently protect devices, data and applications while extending the intended Apple experience through the most robust and scalable Apple Enterprise Management platform in the market. “I am very excited to bring Wandera’s Apple-first and Apple-best unified cloud security capabilities into the Jamf platform,” said Dean Hager, CEO, Jamf. “We believe the way Wandera has built their solutions provides a significant technical advantage to customers and a superior experience for their end users – directly lining up with our purpose of empowering people with technology that puts them first.” Safely connect workers to the devices, applications and data they need to be productive in a modern world Gone are the days where employees only connect to their work resources from within a traditional network perimeter. In this changing world, it is more important than ever for organisations to provide employees remote access to company resources while keeping the organisation safe and secure. With Jamf and Wandera, organisations can ensure only the right users on compliant devices access authorised resources – simply empowering workers, no matter where they are. Jamf and Wandera both integrate with cloud identity providers to ensure secure access to company resources. While Jamf currently allows users to leverage their single identity and biometrics to access their Mac and cloud applications, Wandera is a true zero trust network access solution that replaces legacy conditional access and VPN technology. It ensures that after a user authenticates into their device, business connections are secured while enabling non-business applications to route directly to the Internet, preserving end-user privacy and optimising network infrastructure. For IT, deploying servers, managing certificates, and configuring IP addresses are a thing of the past. Protect users, devices and organisational data from malicious intent Apple builds one of the strongest out-of-the-box secure platforms on the market. However, Apple is a growing platform target for determined attackers. Jamf helps maintain Mac endpoint compliance, address antivirus needs by preventing macOS malware, as well as detect and remediate Mac-specific threats. Wandera protects iOS and Android endpoints from being compromised through threat detection and zero-day phishing prevention with a first-class app for notifications and remediation. Together, Jamf and Wandera are a complete purpose-built solution to protect Apple users from malicious intent — all while delivering the intended Apple end-user experience. Ensuring all Apple devices are always “fit for use” with automatic deployment, configuration, application management, policy enforcement and self-service Device management requires more than just the basics. From zero-touch deployment to inventory and ongoing management, Jamf gives IT teams the ability drop-ship a device configured just for the individual. Wandera offers a new level of management capability. It takes the notion of “policies” even further. Organisations can enforce acceptable usage policies to eliminate shadow IT and block risky content, while also managing data consumption with real-time analytics and granular reporting. “Hybrid work is here to stay, and more and more organisations like mine are looking for technology partners that will allow us to secure company data while empowering on-the-go employees to be productive,” said Gary Owen, IT Manager, C-TEC. “Wandera and Jamf aim to protect all aspects of this new hybrid work world - data, business apps, devices and networks. This acquisition will help me better deliver a more efficient and secure experience for C-TEC, without interrupting the team’s productivity or compromising organisational security.” The transaction was completed as expected during Jamf’s third quarter 2021 and was subject to customary closing conditions, including required U.S. regulatory approvals.About JamfJamf, the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, extends the legendary Apple experience people love to businesses, schools, and government organisations through its software and the world’s largest online community of IT admins focused exclusively on Apple, Jamf Nation.

Giving End Users Easy but Secure Access to Workplace Tools Stolen or compromised passwords are a security threat now more than ever. IT admins try to combat this threat with password policies, but strong passwords can be difficult for users to remember, and passwords are often reused for multiple resources, increasing vulnerability. Jamf has expanded on the value of secure access to resources by introducing an iPhone application called Jamf Unlock. Jamf Unlock allows a user to passwordlessly authenticate and access their Mac, using Face ID biometrics on the device they always have with them – their iPhone. Building its Endpoint Security Platform, Bolstered by Its Threat Detection Team Research As the demand for Apple continues to increase in the market, these devices become a bigger target for malware authors and malicious actors. Jamf introduced Jamf Protect in late 2019 and it has become a market-leading Apple-specific security solution. Since launch, Jamf Protect has added extensive anti-virus capabilities, expanded threat prevention capabilities, introduced features to selectively collect device logs for a distributed Mac fleet, added integrations into Microsoft Azure Sentinel and AWS S3, and rounded out common administrative capabilities with role-based access control. Jamf’s platform is backed by its Threat Detection team’s diligent research. As the team discovers threats, they can feed this intelligence into Jamf’s solutions. In the last two months, the team discovered and analysed two major vulnerabilities in macOS, now patched by Apple, that were actively being exploited by Shlayer and XCSSET. Both vulnerabilities bypassed built-in macOS security and privacy features, resulting in unverified trust to execute and access user screens, respectively. Jamf’s Threat Detections team continues to monitor for future attacks to help organisations maintain the security of their Apple fleet. Simplifying Compliance to Allow Security and IT Teams to Focus on Strategic Initiatives Companies implement compliance and auditing standards to ensure security best practices are in place to help guard against various cybersecurity risks that have the potential to cause reputational harm and financial loss and impact people’s daily lives. This month, Jamf launched Compliance Reporter, an auditing and compliance solution for macOS that monitors endpoint security settings against common OS hardening benchmarks. Compliance Reporter also maintains in-depth visibility to critical network, process, system, and user activity for threat hunting by IT and security teams, all without relying on any cloud infrastructure. Doubling Down in Mobile Security with Acquisition of Wandera Last month, Jamf announced its intent to acquire Wandera, a leader in zero trust cloud security and access for mobile devices. Building on Jamf’s existing capabilities, Wandera adds Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), mobile threat defense, and data policy features to ensure mobile workers can simply and safely access the network resources they need while complying with organisational policies and reducing mobile charges. This acquisition uniquely positions Jamf to help IT and security teams protect the devices, data and applications used by a mobile workforce, while extending the intended Apple experience through the most robust and scalable Apple Enterprise Management platform in the market. The deal is expected to close in the third quarter. “The security needs of enterprise organizations are changing, as their employees demand to work from the devices and locations they want,” said Josh Stein, director of strategy, security, Jamf. “Jamf is committed to building the most secure and scalable Apple Enterprise Management platform available and to letting IT and security teams stay compliant with company policies while empowering their end users to be their most productive and protected from whichever device and workspace they choose.” About Jamf Jamf, the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, extends the legendary Apple experience people love to businesses, schools, and government organisations through its software and the world’s largest online community of IT admins focused exclusively on Apple, Jamf Nation.

Jamf Setup and Jamf Reset with Single Login Enhances iPhone and iPad Shared Device Management for Frontline Workers 2021-06-03T07:21:42Z jamf-setup-and-jamf-reset-with-single-login-enhances-iphone-and-ipad-shared-device-management-for-frontline-workers SYDNEY – June 3, 2021 – Jamf (NASDAQ: JAMF), the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, today announced public preview of a new Single Login workflow supported by Jamf Setup and Jamf Reset to simplify and secure shared-device deployments. With this new release, a user's cloud identity credentials can be used to instantly provision and de-provision an iOS or iPadOS device for their individual needs - all while supporting a native single sign-on workflow, wirelessly and without needing IT to touch the device. “Jamf believes there are two types of iPhone and iPad deployments in business: devices for general productivity and devices for specific workflows. Devices for productivity are assigned to an individual and used to enhance daily efficiency. Devices for specific workflows are used for a purposeful activity, and often shared amongst users, like care providers, flight attendants, or sales teams,” said Josh Jagdfeld, senior director of partnerships, Jamf. “Jamf has long served both. But, with Jamf Setup and Jamf Reset — for which we hold U.S. patents — Jamf stands alone in meeting purposeful shared use cases for customers. With today’s announcement of Single Login, we are proud to offer organisations looking to utilize shared devices a secure yet powerful way to do so.”Jamf Setup and Jamf Reset were launched three years ago to allow a single device to support multiple customised use cases — a game-changing ability for IT admins and users across all industries. However, many frontline workers using shared iOS devices experience “login fatigue” due to repeatedly logging into multiple applications for their daily work. Additionally, end users don’t have a streamlined way of refreshing the shared device of their credentials at the end of their shift so that it’s ready for the following user.Today’s launch of Single Login is intended to help users of a shared iOS device have a seamless Apple experience on their device, similar to what they have on their personally owned device. Jamf Setup and Jamf Reset with Single Login aims to:Streamline the End User Workflow - Jamf Setup and Jamf Reset with Single Login equip frontline workers with a simple way to start and end their use of a shared device - without complex technology or IT support. The workflow enhances device personalisation for the duration of use while upholding security standards by only permitting authorised users to access device resources.Deliver Native Cross-App Single Sign-On - This new workflow enables a user to access a suite of apps with a single login on a company-owned shared iOS device. Users are no longer burdened by repetitive manual password entry, improving end-user experience and ease of access to frontline productivity tools.Enhance Security and Management - Jamf Setup and Jamf Reset with Single Login benefits the end user while also streamlining security and management of company devices for IT teams. The workflow allows for device assignments to be audited by IT for security and inventory management, to easily see which user is assigned to a device from the admin console or through automated reporting.Simplify Device Transitions - With Jamf Reset, once the user finishes with the device, they can quickly remove their footprint from the device to ensure it is readied for the following user within seconds. The user’s role-based configuration and app settings are then cleared from the shared iOS device.Best-in-class app providers that support industries with a large number of frontline workers are joining with Jamf to uniquely solve for these four areas; some with product available for testing today, and others who are actively working on support for the workflow.“Modern warehouse operators use mobile computing to improve every area of their operations, and Apple helps us deliver on the shop floor. Because of this powerful platform, we can offer more efficient workflows, instant communications, error elimination, safety and regulatory compliance - all with a great user experience,” said Nate Brown, CEO of EVS. “With Jamf Setup and Jamf Reset as well as our mobe3 app’s support for Jamf’s Single Login, we now have a new role-based and Apple-native single sign-on workflow. Warehouse operators can manage this whole app ecosystem quickly and precisely to set up their users for success. And when the user wins, we all win."“A frictionless intersection of connecting the user’s identity to a shared device is absolutely fundamental to the success of our platform,” said Paul Zieske, CTO of Navv Systems, an indoor navigation and location services healthcare platform. "Navv is focused on eliminating delays from mobile workflows, so Jamf’s new Single Login workflow allows us to drive a seamless, Apple-native single sign-on experience for frontline users of NavvTrack. The easier it is for users to log in and interact with our platform across their entire shift, the more precise and efficient our solution becomes, so we couldn’t be more excited to support this exciting new initiative.”The Jamf Setup and Jamf Reset apps require Jamf Pro and are available today on the App Store. This workflow also relies on preview technology from Microsoft, and more information can be found here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/support/legal/preview-supplemental-terms/About JamfJamf, the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, extends the legendary Apple experience people love to businesses, schools, and government organisations through its software and the world’s largest online community of IT admins focused exclusively on Apple, Jamf Nation.

As an Apple-first provider of unified cloud security, Wandera expands Jamf’s security offering for the enterprise. Building on Jamf’s existing capabilities, Wandera adds Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), mobile threat defense and data policy features to ensure mobile workers can simply and safely access the network resources they need while complying with organisational policies and reducing mobile charges. This acquisition uniquely positions Jamf to help IT and security teams confidently protect the devices, data and applications used by a mobile workforce, while extending the intended Apple experience through the most robust and scalable Apple Enterprise Management platform in the market. “In order to lead Apple Enterprise Management and best serve the growing number of organizations using Apple at work, Jamf needs to fill the gap between what users want and what the enterprise requires,” said Dean Hager, CEO, Jamf. “The combination of Wandera and Jamf will provide our customers a single source platform that handles deployment, Application Lifecycle Management, policies, filtering, and security capabilities across all Apple devices while delivering Zero Trust Network Access for all mobile workers.” The consumerisation of IT and strong demand for Apple continues to proliferate Apple devices in the enterprise. According to IDC's 2020 U.S. enterprise survey, the average penetration of macOS devices is around 23%, compared with 17% in 2019. Additionally, iPhone devices account for 49% of the smartphone installed base among enterprises, while iPad devices make up the majority of tablets used in business. As a result of this growth, Apple devices are now a bigger target for security threats. Additionally, according to Gartner’s Market Guide for ZNTA, “recent movements to largely remote workforces have accelerated the adoption of ZTNA to address hardware and bandwidth limitations of traditional Virtual Private Network (VPN) access.” In the report, Gartner predicts that by 2023, 60% of enterprises will phase out their VPNs in favour of a ZTNA solution. “Jamf and Wandera are able to take advantage of the immense market opportunity to shape the future of the zero trust cloud. We are thrilled to be joining forces with the leader in Apple Enterprise Management,” said Eldar Tuvey, CEO and co-founder, Wandera. “We founded Wandera to make security simple in a zero trust world. By combining with Jamf, we can offer our customers a truly integrated access and security platform, with exceptional ease of use, speed, scalability and reliability. Together, we accelerate our customers’ ability to seamlessly and securely keep their employees connected, no matter where they are.” Under the terms of the definitive agreement, Jamf will acquire Wandera for total consideration of $400 million, subject to customary adjustments, including working capital, indebtedness, closing cash on hand and transaction expenses. The total consideration consists of an initial payment of $350 million at close and deferred consideration of $50 million to be paid in $25 million increments on October 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021. The transaction is expected to close during the third quarter of fiscal year 2021, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including required U.S. regulatory approvals.

Jamf Kicks Off 2020 Virtual Jamf Nation User Conference, Showcasing How Its Apple Enterprise Management Platform Powers the Future of Remote Work, Distance Learning and Telehealth 2020-10-01T01:53:01Z jamf-kicks-off-2020-virtual-jamf-nation-user-conference-showcasing-how-its-apple-enterprise-management-platform-powers-the-future-of-remote-work-distance-learning-and-telehealth MINNEAPOLIS – September 29, 2020 – Today, with over 15,000 Apple IT administrators around the world attending virtually, Jamf (NASDAQ:JAMF) kicked off its 11th annual Jamf Nation User Conference (JNUC). With a theme of ‘a year like no other’, Jamf showed how its Apple Enterprise Management platform is enabling IT to digitally transform business, education and healthcare and empower employees, nurses, doctors, educators and students.“2020 has been a year like no other. Workflows that were once visionary, like zero-touch deployment and virtually educating students or caring for patients, are now necessary,” said Dean Hager, CEO, Jamf. “Jamf goes well beyond the MDM framework to fill the gap between what Apple builds and what organisations require to empower and serve their employees, students and patients. We are proud of the work that Jamf Nation, the world’s largest online community of Apple IT administrators, is leading in digitally transforming their organisations.”Work AnywhereCOVID-19 has spurred the greatest movement of the workforce into their homes in history. IT teams need to be able to ship new devices without touching them and allow employees to work anywhere while staying secure and connected to the resources they need. Jamf’s Apple Enterprise Management (AEM) platform, the only AEM solution of scale that automates the entire lifecycle of Apple in the enterprise, announced new key functionality powering remote work including: Streamlined authentication and identity management, biometric security – IT needs to be confident that the right person has access to their hardware and resources, and end users can access everything they need to be productive with a single set of cloud identity credentials. Jamf Connect has been re-built from the ground up with a fresh take on the login and authentication flow, providing a more native and Apple-like experience for end users. The installer package was also simplified, making it easier for IT admins to implement and deploy Jamf Connect to users.In addition, instead of relying on another piece of unmanaged, costly hardware such as a smart card to conduct multi-factor authentication, workers can employ a passwordless workflow using an iPhone and Face ID or Touch ID to secure the Mac provisioning process. This allows employees to leverage their Microsoft Azure AD credentials on the Jamf Connect iOS app, and loads a certificate on the iPhone, which is validated on a Bluetooth-paired Mac. Employees can then utilise biometrics (e.g. Face ID or Touch ID) on their iPhone (and a PIN number if required by the IT admin) to securely unlock their Mac and access the resources they need. Beta for the passwordless workflow will be available later this year, with general availability expected in early 2021.While Jamf continues to develop solutions that use cloud identity to provision devices, macOS and iOS also contain Apple’s native Single Sign-On Extension framework, which when used with an identity provider’s extension on a managed device, can greatly improve the login experience to enterprise applications. Today, Jamf demonstrated a preview of the forthcoming Microsoft Enterprise SSO Plugin, which allowed for a transparent Azure AD authentication while accessing the Jamf Self Service portal. Extension of Microsoft partnership brings conditional access to iOS devices – Jamf announced it has extended its partnership with Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security by launching iOS Device Compliance. Through this offering, available today in preview and coming soon to all customers, organisations are empowered to choose Jamf for iOS management while also sharing important device information like compliance status with Microsoft Endpoint Manager. IT teams can utilize the built-solely-for-Apple Jamf features for Apple ecosystem management, while leveraging conditional access to ensure that only trusted users from compliant devices, using approved apps, are able to access company data. Apple-specific endpoint protection that secures devices accessing resources from everywhere – This year, Jamf showed critical new functionality within its recently-launched enterprise endpoint protection solution Jamf Protect, including broad malware prevention to identify and block incidents on macOS, as well as unified log forwarding that allows organisations to monitor extensive activity across their fleet in real time without devices ever touching the corporate network.“The COVID-19 pandemic acted like a stress test for our remote management tools, and Jamf has lived up to the challenge,” said Joe Steele, Head of Workplace Technology, Starling Bank. “We are now able to allow employees to work remotely indefinitely because we can connect them to what they need to be productive, then manage and secure their devices. Jamf has future-proofed our workflows for whatever comes next.”Jamf also announced key updates to its Marketplace, the central hub for customers to discover ways to extend their Jamf environment. Today, the Marketplace has nearly 350 listings, including recent integrations with Jira, ServiceNow and Splunk. Updates include improved discoverability, more prominent features on what’s new in the marketplace and direct access to the tools IT needs to make custom configuration much easier. Care Anywhere Jamf announced a new telehealth workflow aimed at protecting providers while still connecting patients to the care they need and the communities they love – virtually. In this year like no other, healthcare organisations around the world can use Virtual Visits powered by Jamf to configure and instantly deploy third-party conferencing platforms like Zoom and Microsoft Teams to iPad or iPhone. Providers are able to easily virtually round to their patients, and patients can simply connect with loved ones outside the hospital - without IT ever having to touch the device. Further, once patients are discharged, Virtual Visits can help automatically digitally wipe the device to prepare it for the next patient. This new workflow can limit the amount of PPE care teams use during each patient encounter, while still enabling them to provide quality care.“With Virtual Visits, we can facilitate an easy way for patients to stay connected without the technology being overly complicated in order to improve the patient experience,” said Holly Panting, IT Project Manager, Oxford Health. “With the flexibility provided by Jamf, it allows us to deploy and manage these devices easily. We can now spin up these solutions quickly and get them deployed safely.” Learn AnywhereSchools needed to pivot to distance learning quickly this spring, and for the 2020-2021 school year, they need to power hybrid programs but be ready to shift to virtual in a moment’s notice. Jamf announced Learn Anywhere, its complete solution for empowering education whether teachers are ten feet or ten miles from students. Learn Anywhere includes new features that help educators communicate with students, use engaging resources and assess learning objectives from any environment, including: Remote Class - Unique ability for teachers to launch a virtual classroom or one-to-one meeting with students in only one click using trusted conference platforms like Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Google Meet. Raise Hand - When a student gets stuck and doesn't know where to go, they sometimes need help from their teacher directly. Raise Hand allows students to digitally engage teachers with a question or alert them to an issue, as if they were sitting face-to-face in a classroom. Jamf Assessment - Before now, there was not a fully compliant method to administer proctored exams in a virtual world. With the Jamf Assessment app, the proctor is able to see both a live recording of the screen and video of the student through the camera. It is completely configurable through Jamf Pro or Jamf School to allow you to customise background colors, specify the online test site and adjust the width of your video and exam windowpanes. Now students are able to take college placement or any other high-stakes assessments even when forced to learn from home, allowing them to continue building their future. Jamf Teacher, Jamf Parent and Jamf School Student apps - The integrated easy-to-use Jamf Teacher, Jamf School Student and Jamf Parent apps enable better teacher to student communication and empower parents to get more involved in their children’s education and device usage.“Jamf allowed us to transition our district from in-class learning to distance learning in 24 hours,” said Jacob Luevano, Innovative Teaching Strategist, Manor Independent School District. “Many students who didn’t have access to apps, resources and all the benefits of modern technology, now do. This allows them to better engage with their peers and teachers, and empowers them to seamlessly transition from classroom to home with their Apple device in hand.”The Jamf Teacher app is now available for Jamf Pro customers, and both the Jamf Teacher and Jamf School Student apps will be available for Jamf School customers on macOS soon. Jamf also announced that it used a portion of its IPO proceeds, in partnership with several of its banking partners and financial sponsors, to launch four new Apple Classrooms, called Innovation Hubs. Collaborating with Urban Ventures, whose mission is to end urban poverty, and MATTER ngo, an NGO helping people launch ideas that improve communities, Jamf and its financial sponsors announced plans to launch Innovation Hubs in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and Zimbabwe, Africa. These Hubs will be equipped with Apple technology for classroom and after-school programming designed to prepare kids for college and careers. In addition, Jamf and Urban Ventures are launching a Mobile Innovation Hub. Designed specifically to travel to under-equipped partner schools throughout Minneapolis, the Mobile Innovation Hub will be equipped with collaboration spaces, iPads, Apple TVs, Sphero balls, flying drones and learning applications to augment school curriculum across several subjects, including coding.About JamfJamf, the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, extends the legendary Apple experience people love to businesses, schools and government organisations through its software and the world’s largest online community of IT admins focused exclusively on Apple, Jamf Nation.

Because of this, organisations are looking for a streamlined way to manage and secure all of their devices. Jamf, the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, has announced it is extending its collaboration with Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security by launching iOS Device Compliance, available now in a closed preview.Through this offering, organisations are empowered to choose Jamf for iOS management while also sharing important device information, like compliance status, with Microsoft Endpoint Manager. IT teams can utilise Jamf features for Apple ecosystem management, while leveraging Conditional Access powered by Azure Active Directory and Microsoft Endpoint Manager to ensure that only trusted users from compliant devices, using approved apps, are able to access company data.“Trends like employee technology choice programs and the consumerization of IT continue to grow, and organiations need management tools that can adapt and shift to hybrid environments,” said Brad Anderson, corporate vice president at Microsoft. “With Microsoft and Jamf, IT teams can consolidate management of employee devices, while not losing the ability to provide key ecosystem-specific functionality.”iOS Device Compliance is expected to be generally available for all Jamf customers later this year.Organisations already enjoy the ability to leverage Conditional Access on macOS devices, by sharing inventory data from Jamf with Microsoft Endpoint Manager. Today’s announcement of an expanded collaboration adds iOS support. Now IT teams can prevent an authorised user from using any macOS or iOS device that does not comply with security policies, and leverage Jamf Self Service for remediation.Jamf addresses this by requiring the user to register devices they want to use to access applications connected with Azure Active Directory, including Microsoft 365 Apps. First, compliance criteria is established and measured on the iOS device by Jamf. The device information collected by Jamf is then sent to Microsoft Endpoint Manager. Finally, Endpoint Manager checks the device’s compliance state and leverages Azure Active Directory to dynamically grant or deny access. If the device is not compliant, a notification is sent to the user, requiring remediation in Jamf Self Service.“We know IT teams want the simplicity of managing and securing all their devices within a single pane, while still providing the intended Apple experience employees demand and deserve,” said Jason Wudi, chief technology officer, Jamf. “Jamf and Microsoft have a long history of collaborating to better empower the end user and IT, and today’s announcement of iOS Device Compliance shows we are committed to continuing to innovate to make the modern management experience better for enterprises growing their Apple fleet.”In 2017, Jamf and Microsoft announced a collaboration to bring Conditional Access to macOS, which included the ability to share inventory data from Jamf Pro to Microsoft Intune, apply Conditional Access and offer remediation paths – ensuring that trusted users are accessing corporate data from trusted applications on trusted devices. Then in 2018, Jamf again expanded Microsoft technology integration to create a more seamless login experience for end users.About JamfJamf, the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, extends the legendary Apple experience people love to businesses, schools and government organisations through its software and the world’s largest online community of IT admins focused exclusively on Apple, Jamf Nation.

At the same time, patients are under intense isolation and without their families – prompting leading medical associations like the American Medical Association to call for expedition in implementing telemedicine. Jamf, the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, today announced a new telehealth workflow aimed to protect providers while still connecting patients to care and their communities – Virtual Visits. With Virtual Visits powered by Jamf, healthcare organisations can configure and instantly deploy third-party conferencing platforms like Cisco Webex, Zoom and Microsoft Teams to iPad or iPhone. Providers are able to easily virtually round to their patients, and patients can simply connect with loved ones outside the hospital - without IT ever having to touch the device. Further, once patients are discharged, Virtual Visits can help to automatically digitally wipe the device to prepare it for the next patient. This new workflow limits the amount of PPE care teams use during each patient encounter, but still enables them to provide quality care. Patients are also able to connect with their families, which can provide critical emotional support during this difficult time. “Imagine the headache of having to uniquely configure and set up video conference calls between patients, hospital rooms and doctors, then train each party how to access and use the technology. Virtual Visits powered by Jamf can turn this into one click or tap,” said Adam Mahmud, Healthcare Solution Manager at Jamf. “Jamf has a strong history in helping bring the power of the iPad to the patient bedside to help them stay connected, and Virtual Visits is the next step in helping keep the frontline workers of our hospitals safe while still empowering them to provide an excellent care experience.” Dependent on the video platform of choice, Virtual Visits can enable healthcare organisations to: Create unique video conferencing accounts for patient visits: Jamf Pro can trigger an automated workflow to create unique, randomised accounts in a third-party video conferencing platform. Account information is temporarily stored in Jamf Pro for each patient visit, and automatically refreshed for the next patient. This removes the complexity of accounts, logins and passwords for the patient, maintains privacy for providers and ensures security by preventing inadvertent calls. Deploy accounts for use on iPad or iPhone: Once conferencing accounts are stored in Jamf Pro, they are setup for use on devices provided to patients. Patients are then notified when the provider initiates the meeting and can join the video conference with a single tap. Create a simple workflow for providers or patient families: To initiate a meeting, doctors and other clinical staff can access a video conferencing directory from their computer or mobile device. Then, by searching the directory by room number from the patient’s record, the provider can access a “meet now” link to auto-join the patient’s video conference. Patients are also able to connect their families through their device by sending a link directly to them. In response to COVID-19, UCSD Health transformed their health care delivery by turning the majority of their in-person care appointments into telehealth visits. As part of their telehealth strategy, UC San Diego Health implemented Virtual Visits powered by Jamf in mid-April and now have hundreds of iPads configured for inpatient video visits across the campus. This allows their providers to connect with patients from a safe distance. Virtual Visits is the latest workflow Jamf has added to its healthcare offerings. Also with Jamf, healthcare organisations can automatically enroll and configure new Apple devices remotely then manage them seamlessly through patient intake and discharge. Through Jamf Healthcare Listener, an electronic medical record integration to Jamf Pro, HL7 ADT messages (e.g. discharge, transfer) can automatically trigger remote commands to digitally wipe a patient bedside device. Alternatively, Jamf also offers Jamf Reset, an app that can be used to erase and re-configure the device with a single tap. Organisations can easily manage their devices with configuration profiles, policies and smart targeting. With the ability to automate these tasks remotely, organisations can stay current, in compliance and secure.
