Rise in Fintech
In recent years, we have seen an increase in Fintech clients contacting DARE for assistance with their Apple device management. What used to be a simple discussion around configuration or application deployment is now focused on security and compliance requirements from day one. Consultancy would range from start-ups who had adopted Apple as their device platform of choice, all the way to large financial institutes looking to apply a security baseline to their current devices. Some clients fully understood Jamf Pro and have a team of experts in-house, but they need some consultancy around their CIS Benchmarks or 3rd party application patching, and some come from a Microsoft background with no experience as a MacAdmin looking for DARE to manage their whole environment.
Jamf have acquired several security companies in recent years, which have been seamlessly integrated into their software portfolio and licensing model. As an Apple consultancy company that focuses on security, this has only been a positive move for DARE. We can now confidently demonstrate to clients a market-leading endpoint management solution, network threat prevention, analytics, security insights, data policies and a ZTNA solution, all under the Jamf product portfolio.
The key for DARE is the integration that Jamf has with leading identity providers like, OKTA, Azure and Google for platform SSO and even macOS authentication to improve deployment, user experience and security on the device itself. Finally, as a non-negotiable security feature, their products connect into leading SIEM tools like Splunk, AWS and Sentinel so all your unified security logs can be stored and analysed in one location.
With Jamf as our primary software partner we are confident that whatever stage you are at with your Apple management and security requirements, we can demonstrate the right solution for your business needs, first time.
At DARE we offer bespoke onboarding and support solutions to help you get started with Jamf, alongside our own in-house products that focus on device migration and application updates. Our focus as a business is Apple and Security, and our team specialise in making your devices secure and compliant, whatever the stage of your journey.
I’m sure Jamf will only continue to grow in 2023, and together with DARE, we can take you on the journey to a managed, secure and compliant environment.
Get started, now.
