As reported by 9to5Mac, Jamf has announced that the company is now managing over 20 million Apple devices for its customers around the world.

Dean Hager, CEO of Jamf, says that the company has added 16 million devices to its management software in the last five years.

"Coming into 2015, Jamf was 13 years old and managing less than 4 million devices for approximately 5,000 customers. That year, as the enterprise saw a growing number of professionals demanding to use Apple at work, we set an aggressive goal to empower the new workforce by running on 20 million Apple devices by the end of 2020. Through our mission to help organizations succeed with Apple, we are proud to have achieved this milestone, and more importantly to have enabled so many organizations to help their employees, doctors, nurses, teachers and students get the most out of their technology and be their best."

According to the report, the company has added more than 4 million devices and 11,000 customers in 2020, a boost most likely experienced by more people working and learning from home during the pandemic.

Jamf now has more than 47,000 customers, adding more than 4 million devices and 11,000 customers in 2020 alone. Its customers include 24 of Forbe's 25 most valuable brands, all of the top 10 of Bankrate's largest U.S. banks, all 10 of the global universities according to U.S. News & World Report, 16 of the top 20 best U.S. hospitals, according to U.S. News & World Report, and seven of the top 10 Fortune 500 tech companies.

The company's mobile device management software is used by businesses and schools alike to deploy and manage iPhones, iPads, Macs, and Apple TVs remotely. The company has continued to add additional services like Jamf Connect to assist with Mac authentication and Jamf Protect to help with mac security.
