MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 01/29/14 -- JAMF Software, the leader in Apple device management, closed 2013 with tremendous customer growth, product innovation, community success and $30 million in funding. With the growing adoption of Apple in the enterprise, these milestones reflect JAMF's continued momentum in delivering on its vision of enabling organizations of all sizes to succeed with the Apple platform.

JAMF Software's flagship product, Casper Suite, is the only Mac, iPad, Apple TV and iPhone management software that is developed exclusively for the Apple platform. Over the last 11 years, JAMF's market share has grown exponentially worldwide with more than 4,000 customers and more than 2.8 million Apple devices under management.

Customer and Partnership Momentum

JAMF made significant strides in 2013 with customer wins across the commercial, government and education sectors. The company also drove its global expansion through new partnerships along with the opening of new offices in Amsterdam, Sydney, Australia and Hong Kong.

Product Innovation

In August, JAMF released Casper Suite 9 that took the capabilities of the Casper Suite to a whole new level. This new platform is designed to incorporate JAMF's latest innovations in managing mobile devices, site based administrator privileges and language localization.

Other product releases included Casper Focus, which gave classroom teachers for the first time the ability to specify exactly what students see and don't see on their iPads while at school.

JAMF also announced Casper Suite for Apple OS X® Mavericks. The latest version of Casper Suite provides users with additional enterprise management features, security capabilities and zero-day support for Apple's newest operating system -- OS X Mavericks.
