JNUC 21 brings major security and deployment improvements to Apple enterprise

Hot on the heels of Apple’s MacBook Pro launch, the world’s biggest (virtual) gathering of Apple admins is beginning with a raft of announcements from Jamf, including solutions to secure remote working, accelerate deployments and more.

The big event for Apple IT

The 2021 Jamf Nation User Conference, a virtual event, will host over 10,000 Apple administrators from across the enterprise, healthcare, and education. The company now has over 57,000 customers, and its software is used to manage more than 25 million Apple devices, the company said.

“I think ten years ago Windows led in market share,” Jamf CEO Dean Hager told me. “Now, if you look at the U.S., Windows is around 32%.”

According to Statcounter, Windows had about a 75% share of the US market at the end of 2011 and has 31% today. Apple’s iOS and macOS together account for over 40% share in the US. And IDC recently claimed a 23% macOS share in US enterprise IT.

Part of the reason for this change is the expansion of employee choice hardware provisioning schemes across businesses.

“In this day and age, employees have a choice,” Hager told me. “If they don’t like the work computer, they’re going to do their work on their own machine. And as a result, you’re going to be less secure as an organisation.”
