Jamf, an administration service for Apple devices, has announced that it is entering into a partnership with TRUCE Software. The companies want to focus together on the management of iPhones and iPads.
The new product that the companies will release together is called Jamf Worker Safety powered by TRUCE. It is a solution that allows employers to adjust their mobile policies to the devices distributed to employees.
In a press release, the companies mention customising access to apps, notifications and other features based on the user’s location. For example, a device’s functionality could be limited during a car trip or permissions adjusted when the employee is in the office. Jamf and TRUCE promise that the privacy of employees will be safeguarded at all times.
“More organizations are embracing mobile devices to replace legacy workflows, and this shift requires a nuanced balance between creating an exceptional user experience and delivering the level of safety, privacy and security required to satisfy organizational needs,” said Dean Hager, Jamf CEO. “The power of the Jamf platform combined with TRUCE enables a uniquely dynamic user experience while ensuring a safe and productive environment.”
Jamf and TRUCE
Jamf has long specialised in the management of Apple devices, both local and mobile. The company continues to make improvements to its offering. Recently, Jamf entered into a partnership with Computacenter. This has given business customers more options for managing Apple devices remotely.
TRUCE specialises mainly in regulating devices used in the workplace by, for example, drivers and operators of heavy machinery. The company hopes to prevent workers from being distracted by their devices, thereby preventing accidents.
