Apple enterprise management vendor Jamf has acquired one of its UK MSP partners, dataJAR, in a move it says will help its 600 other MSPs scale their support for Apple devices.
Brighton-based Apple and Jamf services specialist dataJAR has more than 300 customers and manages more than 120,000 Apple devices. According to its latest annual accounts, it has around 26 employees.
dataJAR’s proprietary software is designed to provide a single pane of glass for partners who assist in managing technology and services for multiple organisations, streamlining workflows.
It is the second UK Apple services specialist to be snapped up this year, following the sale of Apple repair and services outfit Amsys to Jigsaw24 in April.
A juicy prospect for MSPs
NASDAQ-listed Jamf said the deal will help it partner more closely with its 600-plus MSP partners and extend the reach of its management and security platform.
With Apple growth on the rise in recent years, MSPs have been asking for a solution to help manage their customers’ Apple devices, Jamf also claimed.
“We’re excited to welcome dataJAR to the Jamf family so we can empower our partners with this leading technology and help them better scale their own business with added Apple-focused workflows, expertise, and support,” said Jamf CEO Dean Hager.
“We believe dataJAR’s mission to make powerful technology simple is perfectly complementary to our purpose of simplifying the way works gets done.”
“Since 2013, dataJAR’s mission and core focus has been helping organisations succeed with Apple by combining the power of Jamf with the best skills and services,” added James Ridsdale, Founder of dataJAR.
“I couldn’t be more excited about the future unifying forces, to help more partners empower their customers with the best Apple device management and security.”
With 2022 revenues of $479m, Jamf claims to serve more than 72,500 customers and have 30.8 million devices on its platform.
