Synnex & Jamf ink new Australian partnership

22 Jan 2020

IT solutions aggregator Synnex and Jamf, an enterprise specialist in Apple devices, have announced a new Australian partnership that will open up Jamf’s product suite to more than 6000 Synnex channel partners.

Jamf’s product suite includes a scalable and complete device management solution for Apple devices in the enterprise, as well as the education and government sectors.

“With Synnex being one of the largest Apple providers in Australia, we are absolutely delighted to partner with Jamf. This partnership will give our channel partners a compelling opportunity to complement their Apple devices offering with an intuitive device management solution,” says Synnex Australia’s Apple and Jamf product manager Marco Abelas.

Jamf Australia and New Zealand country manager Jamie Davidson adds that Jamf is always looking for ways to extend enablement and support to channel partners in Australia.

“With the recent growth in Jamf’s product portfolio plus a renewed focus on enterprise and commercial customers, our new partnership with Synnex perfectly aligns with our plans to successfully consolidate and grow, ensuring we help more organisations succeed with Apple,” says Davidson.

“Many organisations are starting to realise the huge benefits of giving their employees a choice over which platform to use as their device. By combining Jamf as part of their total Apple solution, they can easily and efficiently manage devices and deliver enhanced user experience. This solution is a great platform for our partners to leverage on and capitalise on additional revenue,” adds Abelas.

Jamf has also been busy expanding its range of Apple security tools. In July 2019, the company acquired Digita Security, in order to bring in enterprise-grade, purpose-built endpoint protection solutions for Mac under the Jamf umbrella.

As of January 2019, Jamf had expanded its customer base by 57% to welcome over 7,100 new organisations. According to Jamf, the company grew total revenue by 30%, and recurring revenue grew by 40% year-over-year, maintaining an retention rate of 96%.

To support this growth, Jamf grew its global headcount by 138 and grew its international employee base by more than 5%, while maintaining an employee retention rate greater than 90%.

“As Apple technology grows in industries like education, healthcare, retail, hospitality and the enterprise, Jamf gets to work with more and more organisations doing amazing and innovative work,” commented Jamf CEO Dean Hager at the time.

Today, 35,000 global customers rely on Jamf to manage approximately 15 million Apple devices worldwide.
