Apple Management Software Company Jamf Makes Third Acquisition in a Year
Minneapolis-based tech company Jamf, which specializes in providing Apple device management software, announced Wednesday that it has acquired Mac endpoint protection solutions maker Digita Security.
The deal marks the third acquisition within a year for Jamf. Last September, the company acquired NoMAD, another Mac management company,. More recently, Jamf bought Dutch education technology company ZuluDesk in February.
Financial terms of the Digita Security deal were not disclosed.
In a news release, Jamf CEO Dean Hager said his company will absorb the entire Digita Security team and “aggressively invest” in Digita.
By bringing in South Florida-based Digita, Jamf aims to enhance its presence in the Apple management and security space.
“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,” said Hager. “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.”
Digita chief security officer Patrick Wardle said Jamf and Digita share a vision of providing consumers with 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.”
Founded in 2002, Jamf currently serves 15 million Apple devices across 30,000 customers worldwide.
