Jamf has acquired Digita Security, creators of enterprise-grade, purpose-built endpoint protection solutions designed to protect Mac users from malicious activities and threats.

With Digita Security, Jamf will complement its Apple management, authentication and account management solutions with a security offering to provide the industry’s most robust suite of capabilities in the Apple enterprise market, according to CEO Dan Hager. Details regarding availability of Jamf’s enterprise endpoint protection solution will be announced in the near future.

“There is undisputable evidence that demand for Mac in the enterprise is at a record high but, at the same time, security and privacy concerns are at a fever pitch,” he adds. “By extending our existing suite of products with an endpoint protection solution built exclusively for Mac, we know we can further our mission to help organizations succeed with Apple by offering a complete set of capabilities required for Apple in the enterprise. We are excited to welcome the entire Digita Security team to Jamf and plan to aggressively invest in this important solution.”

Digita Security’s Apple-first and Apple-only approach will help ensure day-zero support for new macOS releases, so IT has insight into security vulnerabilities and can take advantage of new operating system security features, he adds. End users are also empowered with the latest macOS capabilities.

“There are many great security solutions in the market, but none of them focus on the unique security capabilities and threats for Mac, and the expectations of both enterprise IT/security and Mac users,” says Patrick Wardle, chief research officer, Digita Security. “We knew early on there was a need for a purpose-built solution that provides the depth of security and peace of mind required by enterprise organizations, and to do so in a way that delivers a user experience that Mac users love. That’s why we started Digita Security and why we are thrilled to join Jamf and fully realize this shared vision.”
