Jamf, an Apple-only implementation and management company, has acquired endpoint protection solutions for Mac vendor Digita Security.

Jamf says that Digita Security will complement its Apple management, authentication and account management solutions with a security offering to provide the industry’s “most robust suite of capabilities” in the Apple enterprise market.

Jamf says details on availability of its enterprise endpoint protection solution will be announced in the near future.

“There is undisputable evidence that demand for Mac in the enterprise is at a record high, but at the same time security and privacy concerns are at a fever pitch,” said Dean Hager, CEO, Jamf.

“By extending our existing suite of products with an endpoint protection solution built exclusively for Mac, we know we can further our mission to help organisations succeed with Apple by offering a complete set of capabilities required for Apple in the enterprise.

“We are excited to welcome the entire Digita Security team to Jamf and plan to aggressively invest in this important solution.”

Jamf - which announced the expansion of its Australian operations with the launch of a new Sydney office last year - say that with Digita Security, founded by a team of industry experts who are regarded as top researchers and developers in macOS security and malware analysis, it quickly realised there was a “unique opportunity to provide a new enterprise endpoint protection solution built exclusively for Mac that works with and extends an organisation’s existing security framework”.

“There are many great security solutions in the market, but none of them focus on the unique security capabilities and threats for Mac, and the expectations of both enterprise IT/security and Mac users,” said Patrick Wardle, Chief Research Officer, Digita Security.

“We knew early on there is a need for a purpose-built solution that provides the depth of security and peace of mind required by enterprise organisations, and to do so in a way that delivers a user experience that Mac users love. That’s why we started Digita Security and why we are thrilled to join Jamf and fully realise this shared vision.”

“Our employees use Macs because it makes them more productive and collaborative, and are easier for our IT team to manage with Jamf,” said David McIntyre, PhD, Chief Information Technology Officer, Build America Mutual.

“We knew we needed an endpoint protection solution that preserved the Apple user experience while upholding our data security and privacy. Through Digita Security’s streaming insights we have unprecedented visibility into our macOS fleet so we can maintain continuous compliance, detect advanced threats, and hunt suspicious behaviours.

“We’re excited about Jamf’s acquisition of Digita Security because their exclusive focus on helping organisations succeed with Apple ensures continued innovation in endpoint protection for Mac.”
