MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--JAMF Software has announced significant new Apple enterprise management capabilities with Casper Suite 9, empowering organizations worldwide to enable the full potential of Apple technologies for their users. The Casper Suite is the leading management tool for large-scale enterprise deployments of Apple technologies, and this new release from the company builds on more than a decade of experience working with thousands of customers worldwide.
“We have always strived to understand the needs of our customers and provide them with the best possible tools”
Using the Casper Suite, organizations are able to easily manage increasing numbers of Apple devices, whether they use Mac computers or iOS devices such as iPad and iPhone. Casper Suite 9 introduces comprehensive capabilities designed to help organizations scale globally, while enhancing the user experience for IT administrators and end-users alike through the Casper Suite’s redesigned web interface and intuitive Self Service management tool. The new release also introduces additional capabilities designed to leverage cloud services for distribution of software and content.
Scale globally, speak locally
Casper Suite 9 provides organizations with expanded capabilities to customize the user experience for multiple audiences. With language localization, site-specific administrator privileges, and a beautifully revamped web interface that is optimized for the user’s device, Casper Suite 9 can be configured to provide a simpler experience that is customizable for the specific needs of users.
Simpler does not mean less powerful, however. Casper Suite 9 is as powerful as ever, and has been enhanced with new enterprise capabilities to help organizations scale globally. Featuring powerful built-in integrations with leading cloud distribution networks such as Amazon, Akamai, and Rackspace, Casper Suite 9 ensures that organizations will be able to easily scale software and content distribution across the globe while ensuring compliance with security standards. Infrastructure management has also been improved, with the ability to manage distribution servers directly within the JSS.
Previously, many of these capabilities would have required significant manual work to implement, while relying upon an informal combination of disparate technologies. Casper Suite 9 enables organizations to leverage their existing infrastructure, centralizing management within a single console to meet the varied needs of global organizations leveraging Apple technologies on a daily basis.
“We have always strived to understand the needs of our customers and provide them with the best possible tools,” said Zach Halmstad, Founding Partner at JAMF Software. “We are very excited to share the new Casper Suite with the community, and we believe that it will assist them as they help to empower the users in their organization with Apple technologies.”
100+ features requested by the JAMF Nation user community
More than 100 of the new features within Casper Suite 9 originated as feature requests from the JAMF Nation user community. With thousands of active members, JAMF Nation community members are responsible for many of the largest Apple technology deployments in the world. In addition to being an incredible resource for the community, from beginners to experienced experts, it is also fertile ground for the ongoing discussion of Apple management in the enterprise.
“We make enterprise-scale Apple management simpler,” said Nick Amundsen, Developer Manager, R&D at JAMF Software. “As the community seeks answers for the complex problems they face, we listen and provide solutions designed to help them succeed. We have focused on streamlining the experience for our customers, because that’s what they expect from us. The entire company has contributed to this effort with Casper Suite 9, and it is a great step forward.”
The end result is the powerful and comprehensive feature-set that customers expect with the Casper Suite, wrapped in a simpler user experience.
