Jamf acquires NoMAD, a solution for streamlining Mac authentication/account management

Jamf, which specializes in management solutions for the Apple ecosystem, has acquired NoMAD, an open source and commercial set of software products designed to simplify the Mac administration process. 

Launched in 2016, NoMAD helps companies provide a unified authentication and account synchronization process for their end users. With NoMAD, Jamf has an expanded set of leading management capabilities to serve IT as they move to cloud-based identity solutions while ensuring end users have the best possible Apple experience.

The NoMAD team will join Jamf, and Jamf will continue to develop, enhance and support both the open-source and commercial products, according to Jamf CEO Dean Hager. The open-source solution will remain branded NoMAD, and Jamf will start to offer free chat support for this open-source product. 

The commercial versions of NoMAD, including NoMAD Pro, NoMAD Login+ and PKINIT, will be folded into a single solution, and rebranded Jamf Connect. Customers of both the open-source version and Jamf Connect will benefit from Jamf’s global, world-class support and services team, Hager says.
