JAMF Software release Casper Suite 9.8

JAMF Software have announced the release of version 9.8 of their popular Apple management software, Casper Suite, and it now comes with support for iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan…

What’s new?

Support for iOS 9

Yep, JAMF Software are ready for iOS 9 and have built in support for the latest iOS into version 9.8 of their Casper Suite software, to maintain inventory, deployment workflows, and security policies during the upgrade process. They’ve also introduced workflow enhancements for the Volume Purchase Programme (VPP) including device-based assignments with iOS 9.

New iOS 9 configuration profiles

Version 9.8 also includes several improved security features like:

– Apple Watch pairing and security.

– Data security with AirDrop.

– iCloud photo library.

Better Apple deployments

Apple’s Device Enrolment Programme (DEP) and Volume Purchase Programme (VPP) workflows have been improved to make it easier for IT admins to take advantage of user-friendly deployment programmes and get the required tools and resources into the hands of users faster. Combining Casper Suite 9.8 with DEP and VPP ensures a great experience for IT and users. Casper Suite 9.8 also allows for user-based scoping. This lets IT use their existing user groups from directory services to deploy policies, configurations, and apps.
