CONNECT

Manage the provision of secure access to the resources users need using Jamf Connect to streamline Mac authentication and identity management.

WHAT IS CONNECT?

Jamf Connect gives you the ability to authenticate your macOS devices from anywhere in the world directly to a cloud identity provider. 
 
Historically a macOS device would be bound to Active Directory to provide secure directory based authentication.  As we all look to adopt a cloud first approach and encourage remote working, we still need that central directory wherever the device is located.  As such we now have several major Identity Providers (IdPs) like Azure, Okta and Google offering authentication in the cloud meaning that users can have one single login to use across all platforms with their central username and password.
 
The Connect product is split into three sections named login, verify and notify.

LOGIN

With Jamf Connect Login we are able to change the login mechanism on a macOS device from it’s native login window to that of a supported IdP’s. 

This now lets your Apple users authenticate directly against a cloud authentication service like Azure to provide Single Sign On (SSO) and Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) to your users.

VERIFY

To add to the login mechanism, Jamf also include a verify/sync menu item that provides functionality to the users. 

Keeping passwords completely in sync on your Apple endpoints is invaluable; this will enable users to change their cloud IdP password from their macOS device and have that sync through to the account, keychain and FileVault.

NOTIFY

As we move towards a zero touch deployment model it’s important that an end user is updated on the process of their device configuration at every step. 

With notify the users are displayed a splash screen during deployment that notifies them what Jamf Pro is installing out of the box. As a system administrator you also have confidence that users can not reach the desktop before key business application, FileVault encryption and security software has been deployed and configured.
