Jamf Protect Better than any Anti-Virus?

New Contributor

We are thinking to change our anti-virus and was wondering if Jamf Protect will be the best solution than using any anti-virus for our environment.

Please advise....

For ease of installation, nothing will beat it.

Protect uses the built in Apple systems to protect your device, rather than something running on top of the OS. We run it here, and I really do not even notice it is running, no system lags and no waits for something to be scanned.

It was my understanding from Jamf that it does NOT replace your current anti-virus but just an added layer of protection. It may have changed since it has been 6 months since I talked to them in regards to Jamf Protect.
