Jamf adds customer profiles to Jamf Now

Jamf has added Custom Profiles to Jamf Now, its mobile device management solution for small and medium-sized businesses. 

Custom Profiles will give Jamf Now customers added flexibility and device management power, while still maintaining an intuitive and user-friendly experience. Custom Profiles is available with the Jamf Now Plus plan, according to Tad Johnson, director of product strategy, Jamf Now.

Jamf Now offers seven configuration categories (Web Clips, Security, Email, Wi-Fi, Restrictions, Single App Mode and Wallpaper) in a Blueprint, which allows many macOS and iOS configurations to be set up and applied to devices associated with that Blueprint. 

Custom Profiles give customers who need a more detailed profile the ability to deploy a configuration that goes beyond what is currently offered. Users simply create their custom profiles in Apple Configurator, Profile Manager, Profile Creator or other tools, then upload them to Jamf Now to seamlessly deploy to all Apple devices associated with a Blueprint.
