Jamf wants to make AWS EC2 instances more safe than ever before

Jamf wants to make AWS EC2 instances more safe than ever before ...

Jamf, an Apple device management platform, has launched a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) which it claims will assist users in managing Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances and provide an additional layer of security.

AWS'' EC2 instances allow users to run virtual machines on the company''s cloud platform first begun in 2006.

According to Jamf, the partnership will allow organizations to have managed, trusted access to their macOS workloads on AWS, allowing teams from industries such as software engineering, security, and creative teams to use virtualized macOS environments.

What else is on offer?

The Amazon EC2 infrastructure is built on Mac Minis, which is stored in its data centers.

Organisations who trust Mac as a valuable part of their business can now get trusted, secure access to virtual Macs, the same way as physical Macs, and provide flexible resource allocation to Mac users.

AWS has expanded the number of Mac VM options that it offers. For example, the EC2 service will now allow users to rent and operate an M1 Mac Mini in the cloud.

Developers can build apps for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Safari as well as providing and accessing macOS environments.

The price of the Jamfs device for a single device per month is $4, which is low for the user to be required. It''s now available.

"We as a service provider who manages tens of thousands of Macs across our enterprise customers, we understand the value that Jamf provides. It enables us to ensure the security, management, and seamless onboarding of Apple devices into our services," said James Ridsdale, the founder of dataJAR.

We are seeing an increase in Apple device adoption across our customer base. Jamf allows organizations to continue to provide more options to their employees, contractors, and engineering workflows through the management of Amazon''s EC2 Mac virtualized instances."
