“Despite the misconception, still common in some circles, that “Macs don’t get viruses” (and the reality that they do come equipped with very good built-in security), there is a hidden world of malware and exploits out there that specifically target macOS.” – Jamf After Dark Podcast
MacOS targeted threats continue to be on the rise — especially in recent years — with the surge of Mac adoption in the enterprise space. Larger acceptance also brings with it greater attention from malicious actors looking to take advantage of the lack of security infrastructure in a company’s environment. And make no mistake, they are hard at work looking for a way in, driving the need to identify and remediate vulnerabilities for Mac endpoints — which has never been greater.
That’s why Jamf and Red Canary partnered together.
Over the past year, our companies have been working together to elevate endpoint security for Apple in the enterprise. As we embark upon another macOS upgrade season, Jamf continues to be the leader in same-day support for all new OS versions across the Apple ecosystem.
Despite this, security teams still need help monitoring alerts, identifying vulnerabilities and properly responding to threats.
Red Canary is a leading Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provider focused on helping companies detect and respond to threats across their security stack. We ingest the raw telemetry data from your Mac endpoints through our Jamf Protect integration and provide our own advanced threat detection to help mitigate the threats that others miss.
Our team of security experts — backed by automation — we thoroughly:
- Investigate all threats
- Reduce alert fatigue
- Ensure you are only alerted to what matters
Red Canary supports automated playbooks to perform remediation actions through Jamf when a threat is identified. We also provide a team of Incident Handlers and a support team who are available 24/7 to provide proactive guidance or help if a threat is found. If you want to learn more about the partnership and how we integrate, take a peek at our Jamf Partner Spotlight webinar.
“I’m excited to partner with Jamf to deliver the highest quality security operations for Apple. With Jamf’s full alignment with Apple and same-day support for operating systems and features, Jamf is the best solution to maintain security posture for organizations who want to best protect devices, users and networks.” – Brian Beyer, CEO, Red Canary
