As the Mac security journey becomes ever more challenging, there’s fresh activity in the Mac security and enterprise infrastructure space: Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud now integrates with leading enterprise management platform Jamf.

Acronis and Jamf: Better together

That’s a significant step forward in terms of better native Mac support from Acronis, which has been working to widen its support for Apple’s platform since at least 2014 when it introduced Mac support for Acronis Access.
