Jamf has announced a new bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program to help organizations manage and secure employee-owned devices while respecting user privacy.

Launching initially for iPhone and iPad, the new service is free to Jamf Enterprise and Business customers. Those without a subscription can purchase the service for $6 per device per year.

“The modern work world has changed dramatically in the sense that employees can work anywhere, anytime. At the same time, employees rely on personal devices they feel comfortable on to access company resources,” said Jamf CEO Dean Hager. “That’s why organizations are now re-thinking BYOD and finding the right balance between the security needs of the organization and the privacy of the end user.”

Jamf’s new offering uses an Apple feature called Service Discovery, which encourages account-driven user registration. By associating a personal Apple ID with personal data and a Managed Apple ID with corporate data, the feature enables “limited management of devices using a series of configurations that link management to the user, not the entire device”.

This allows business and enterprise customers to benefit from enhanced security, IT management and a streamlined enrollment system, while protecting employee data and privacy.
