Jamf Protect Experiences?

New Contributor

Just started at a new company and they are in dire need of an endpoint AV solution (among just about every other security precaution that exists).

I am working to set us up with Jamf Pro and I wanted to reach out to see if you have any experience with Jamf Protect (instead of a "more traditional" AV). Most of the posts here are from last year and before I commit to something like MalwareBytes I wanted to check to see if anyone has experience with Jamf Protect as I am a big fan of the tight MacOS integrations and the reduced risk of something breaking with OS updates.

I am 100% not sold on an AV yet so I figured I'd reach out here before diving further into the weeds.

My 2 Cents,


I've experienced Jamf Protect working flawlessly in many macOS / Jamf Pro + Jamf Protect Environments.

I've also experienced many other A/V Solutions being a ROYAL pain in the behind, Symantec, Malwarebytes, McAfee, etc.


It's intuitive, it sends alert emails when malicious stuff is detected & does indeed stop the process from executing. It also provides insight into CIS Benchmark Compliance on a per device basis, allowing you to determine what you would like to remediate.


I'd go with Jamf Protect, it will save you Time, Money & Excedrin.
