We are currently deciding on either purchasing JAMF Pro or Fleetsmith and need to make a decision soon. I was wondering if anyone here has experience using both of these products, which one do you prefer and why? Can someone kindly provide a link to pros and cons as I am unable to find anything?
I currently manage 70 Apple Mac users with Active Directory which will rise to over 150 mid next year. We are also looking to roll out similar quantity iOS mobile devices. The more the security features, the better.
I haven't gone much further then setting up the initial Fleetsmith trial. To me it definitely takes on the more simplistic MDM approach with a Jamf Now feel. I appreciate how much everything in Fleetsmith is clearly outlined
Jamf has been adding a lot of features to make it easier to manage i.e Jamf Pro Release Notes 10.22.0
Jamf will probably require a lot more time, training, and skill to get up and running. Also, judging on Apple's "End User First" approach, a lot of Jamf's "advantages" may be stripped down even further in upcoming macOS releases.
In Fleetsmith's recent email about upcoming changes, I did find it interesting that they'll no longer host Custom App :
