Jamf Protect

What is Jamf Protect?

Jamf Protect is an endpoint protection solution that prevents macOS malware, detects and remediates Mac-specific threats, and monitors endpoints for compliance.

Why Should You Use the Jamf Protect Connector?

The Jamf Protect connector provides visibility into the assets in your environment. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure assets are managed per your security policies

  • derive relationships between assets, users, applications, and data

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the Jamf Protect API and ingests only meta-data about Jamf Protect devices. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
