AWS Verified Access brings the next generation of device-based security to the modern workplace
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, Jamf (NASDAQ: JAMF), Apple’s standard for managing and securing Apple at work, announced a new integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to enable organizations to use AWS and Jamf to elevate their security posture. AWS Verified Access allows customers to define a set of policies or criteria in Jamf that must be met before granting end users and their respective devices access to internal services on AWS.
New integration improves organizational security by improving threat prevention measures and reducing the risk of data breaches, while simplifying security controls
Now, with AWS Verified Access, organizations using AWS and Jamf can verify that devices are managed and meet an acceptable risk threshold before providing access to sensitive or critical internal services. The policies that customers can set can be flexible depending on their organizational requirements and overall level of security risk tolerance. For example, a customer may wish to only allow managed devices from a specific Internet Protocol (IP) address range, have a certain device risk score present, or have a minimum operating system (OS ). This new integration allows customers to go deeper into management and security, bringing together Jamf Pro, AWS, and the Jamf Trust application.
For companies running private applications on AWS, Jamf support is an important first step in securing corporate data with a trusted user and device. This integration is one component of the broader vision of Secured access Jamf made its first presentation at this year’s Jamf Nation User Conference.
“We’re excited to continue working with AWS, one of the world’s most comprehensive and widely adopted cloud offerings, to help our mutual customers strengthen organizational security while simplifying security controls,” said Dean. Hager, CEO of Jamf. “With this integration, organizations can use the AWS infrastructure they’ve invested in, give users the devices they love, and depend on security workflows that IT and security teams trust.”
Jamf continues to innovate with AWS
Earlier this fall, Jamf announced that it was working with AWS to create a streamlined and powerful workflow to manage and provide an additional layer of security for large-scale Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Mac instances. An organization must ensure that its virtual machines are as secure as its physical machines. Leveraging the power of Apple and AWS, Jamf has taken the concept of zero-touch deployment further than ever before. Now, with Jamf’s leading management and security solutions, organizations can provide reliable access to virtual Mac computers the same way they do physical Macs, providing flexible resource allocation for organizations that rely on Mac for business-critical components.
“AWS is proud to continue working with Jamf so that organizations can provide trusted access to their users,” said Dave Brown, vice president of Amazon EC2 at AWS. “Today’s announcement of AWS Verified Access Integration is the next step in a powerful partnership to help the company succeed with Apple.
Workflow is available on Mac for AWS and Jamf customers today.
Jamf’s goal is to make work easier by helping organizations manage and secure an Apple experience that end users love and organizations trust.
