JAMF Software Announces Plug-Ins for Microsoft SCCM 2012 and Altiris Client Management Suite, Allowing Enterprise Organizations to Manage the Apple Platform

JAMF Software, developers of the Casper Suite, a collection of device management applications for the Apple platform including devices such as iPhone, iPad and Mac computers, has announced plug-ins for Windows management systems including Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2012 (SCCM) and Altiris Client Management Suite.

The Casper Suite is the best-of-breed management software for the entire Apple platform, enabling organizations to confidently manage and secure devices as they respond to the incredible growth of Apple in the enterprise. With the release of plug-ins that integrate with the latest versions of the leading Windows management systems, enterprise organizations are immediately able to manage the Apple platform by using the Casper Suite alongside existing infrastructure.

Support for Microsoft SCCM 2012 and Altiris Client Management Suite 7.1

In environments where Apple devices are flooding into traditionally PC-based organizations, IT management is often faced with the dilemma of settling on a single cross-platform product that has lesser capabilities for one platform or training administrators to work with parallel systems that have stronger platform-specific capabilities but do not allow for centralized reporting.

With JAMF Software’s plug-in architecture, the end result is truly the best of both worlds. IT administrators can use the comprehensive capabilities of the Casper Suite to manage their Apple devices, while hardware and software data is synced in real-time to their existing Windows management solution to ensure that inventory is always up-to-date for compliance and auditing. By bridging the gap between systems, plug-ins allow organizations to use the best tool for the job on both the Windows and Apple platforms while providing a seamless experience for end users without compromising on quality.

“We are increasingly hearing from enterprise organizations that want the best solution to manage growing quantities of Apple devices,” said Doug Rhoten, Development Manager, Plug-Ins at JAMF Software, developers of the Casper Suite. “With these plug-ins, they are able to choose the best-of-breed Casper Suite to manage their Apple devices, without having to change their existing management infrastructure. The plug-in architecture and compatibility with leading Windows client management solutions means that organizations can have full management capabilities for both platforms, while maintaining a single console for their inventory and compliance reporting.”

JAMF Software joins Microsoft System Center Alliance

JAMF Software also announced membership in the Microsoft System Center Alliance, an online resource to help partners create solutions for Microsoft System Center and deliver information about these solutions to customers and channel partners. Customers and partners can immediately access information about JAMF Software’s SCCM Plug-In by accessing the Microsoft System Center alliance portal.
