Kandji

Apple device management (MDM) for macOS, iOS, iPadOS, tvOS.

About Kandji

Kandji is an MDM solution for IT teams at businesses that run on Apple.

We work with Apple Business Manager to automate device deployment so new employees can use pre-configured devices right out of the box.

The only MDM with a pre-built library of 150+ automations, take advantage of features like automated patching, compliance templates, and the industry's first macOS agent that auto-remediates, even when devices are offline.

Save time with 1-click configurations for Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.


Key benefits of Kandji

- Zero-touch deployment: Kandji works with Apple Business Manager, formerly the Device Enrollment Program (DEP), to automate device deployment so your employees can use their devices right out of the box without a visit to IT.

- Application management: Save time with automated patching by choosing from Kandji’s library of Auto Apps. You can also sync App Store apps from Apple Business Manager, upload and deploy custom apps, or even block unwanted software.

- Limitless configurations: Choose from the largest library of configuration settings to customize the way your organization uses everything from Wi-Fi profiles to email accounts to custom scripts.

- One-click compliance: With Kandji, compliance is never an afterthought. As the only MDM with a pre-built library of security controls (over 150 and growing), Kandji includes the industry’s first macOS compliance framework that automatically enforces and remediates issues, even when your devices are offline.

Overall, we've had an amazing experience. The software continues to impress and serve us well on a daily basis, and the support teams have always been there if we had any issues. Awesome work, can't wait to see where else Kandji goes!

Pros

This software is many things, including beautiful in design and UI, super intuitive and easy to use, fully customizable, and not fraught with the sort of errors we had seen in other software we used for our MDM needs.

Cons

The only thing I've ever taken issue with as far as Kandji's options/features is concerned is missing payloads in the Library from new software releases. However, the plus here is that there are feedback and suggestion options, and the team is very quick to get on any support requests. The thing about the pricing that I am not wholly pleased with is the fact that up to a certain amount of users, we were billed by the 100, even if we only needed a handful of licenses over a specific multiple of 100.

I chose Kandji because it would allow us to easily deploy new Macs and apply configuration, policies, and install applications. It took little effort for us to set up the instance from the start and we were able to deploy a new computer with a blueprint within a few hours of beginning to use Kandji. Compared to JAMF, this was a huge win for us.

I also loved how easy it was to setup Automated Device Enrollment.

Pros

- Implementation was simple to figure out on my own
- Setting up automated device enrollment took less than 20 minutes and much faster than competing solutions
- Support team is responsive

Cons

- You can't scope policies, configurations, or applications to a group of people or an individual; it has to be scoped to an entire blueprint which is not ideal
- There's little reporting functionality. For example, I'd like to run a report on all of the software that is installed across our laptops and you can't do that

Reasons for Switching to Kandji

I've used Jamf for the past decade but Kandji won out due to ease of use and time to implement.

Pros

Like the automatic patching features, but the ability to enforce updates sooner, such as immediately when it comes to security patches would be great.

Cons

Cannot deploy specific software for 1-10 users without having to create an entire new blueprint and this can get out of control very quickly.

It's really great, helps us loads to deploy systems fast. Very granular control over al systems. Managing hundreds of macOS and iOS devices and having uniform installs for different departments.

Pros

It helps us to deploy dozens of systems and reconfigure and update them in our distributed business very easily and fast

Cons

The only thing I'd love to change is being able to force installations from blueprints rather than in the custom apps

We moved from Cisco Meraki to this product after evaluating all items on the market and found the support, ease of use and technical expertise far superior. We are constantly making improvements to our zero touch environment as well as protecting assets we currently own.

Pros

Support, granularity of blueprints and the ability to add software as we see fit

Cons

Cost (but you get what you pay for). I know its cliché but we really love the product itself.
