Jamf (NASDAQ: JAMF), the standard in managing and securing Apple at work, announced three new integrations with Google Cloud, enabling and protecting mobile workforces that use Google and Apple. Encompassing Zero Trust, observability, and identity workflows, Jamf continues to provide unique value for Google Cloud users with Apple devices.
Bringing Zero Trust to Life: Google Cloud’s BeyondCorp Enterprise Now Available for iOS and iPadOS
Jamf’s integration with BeyondCorp now supports device compliance signals for iOS and iPadOS. The addition of Apple’s mobile platforms builds on last year’s release of the Jamf and Google Cloud’s BeyondCorp integration for macOS. Jamf is the first management platform to support Apple desktop and mobile devices in this Zero Trust framework.
“Some of the world’s most successful organizations choose to empower their employees with Mac and iPhone, while taking advantage of Google Cloud’s speed, security and flexibility for Cloud applications,” said Sam Weiss, Alliance Partner Manager for Google at Jamf. “Now these modern companies that choose Apple hardware and Google Cloud software can more effectively secure and manage their mobile workforces.”
Jamf’s extensive Apple device management and security capabilities allow the enforcement and monitoring of device compliance status. When integrated with BeyondCorp, admins can create context-aware access policies that include Jamf compliance status. This combination of device-based and user-based access controls allows organizations to define policies specific to their needs, ensuring all devices and users can access corporate data wherever they choose to work from.
"We at Unibuddy are thrilled about the seamless integration between Jamf and Google Cloud's BeyondCorp, which aligns with our Zero Trust security model. This partnership will enable us to efficiently manage our macOS and iOS devices while enhancing our security posture and ensuring the privacy of our employees," said Rupen Valand, Global IT Manager at Unibuddy. "Strong security is important for university partners and employees because it helps protect sensitive data and build trust. By providing an extra layer of security for accessing company resources, this solution empowers our employees to work remotely with ease and confidence, unencumbered by security or privacy concerns. We're excited to implement this solution and unlock its full potential with our teams at Unibuddy."
Elevating Security Operations: Google Cloud’s Chronicle Enhances Jamf Integration
Security teams are more effective when they have complete visibility of events in their environment. Google Cloud’s Chronicle is a modern security operations suite that enables threat detection, investigation and response with speed, scale and precision. Chronicle SIEM’s default parsers for Jamf Pro and Jamf Protect now map even more Jamf data into Chronicle’s unified data model (UDM). Additionally, Chronicle’s new support for Webhooks means Jamf Protect can automatically send security alerts and events to Chronicle as they occur. Now, IT and security teams can more effectively collaborate on security event detection and prevention by aggregating Jamf’s Apple device telemetry in Chronicle. The Chronicle parsers for Jamf Pro, Jamf Protect and support for Webhook, are all available now.
“Directly integrating Jamf Protect into Chronicle has been a big win for us,” said Mikail Tunç, Head Of Security at Algbra. “The extensive detail provided by Jamf Protect Telemetry logs has heightened our ability to identify and mitigate more threats than ever, while staying resilient to Apple OS updates. We look forward to contributing to the broader community by open-sourcing our Chronicle detection rules over Jamf Protect data.”
Simplifying end-user protection: Jamf brings Google Cloud Identity support to Jamf Trust
Jamf has extended Google Cloud Identity support to Jamf Trust and improved the user app for endpoint security. This enhancement brings a consistent single sign-on experience for users with their Identity credentials, enabling robust endpoint security without complex integrations or additional assistance from IT.
“At Spendesk, we’re thrilled to have our native identity provider Google Cloud supported by the Jamf Trust app. This will allow us to speed up our Zero Trust adoption. It’s really great how Jamf supports Google Cloud-based organizations like Spendesk,” said Hakim Boukir, IT Manager at Spendesk.
Jamf’s purpose is to simplify work by helping organizations manage and secure an Apple experience that end users love and organizations trust. Jamf is the only company in the world that provides a complete management and security solution for an Apple-first environment that is enterprise secure, consumer simple and protects personal privacy.

Contrast Security (Contrast), the code security platform built for developers and trusted by security, today announced it will extend its market-leading application security testing (AST) platform to support testing of Large Language Models (LLMs) from OpenAI. In this first release, Contrast rules help teams that are developing software using the OpenAI application programming interface (API) set to identify and mitigate weaknesses that could expose an organization to prompt injection vulnerabilities: i.e., attacks involving injection of a prompt that deceives the application into executing unauthorized code.
Prompt injection was identified as the top risk for LLM applications by the just-released OWASP 10 Top for Large Language Model Applications project. Contrast has continued to support OWASP's mission to improve Application Security (AppSec): In fact, Contrast's Chief Product Officer Steve Wilson led the 400-person volunteer team that created the OWASP Top 10 for LLMs.
"As project lead for the new OWASP Top 10 for LLMs, I can say our group looked deeply at many attack vectors against LLMs. Prompt Injection repeatedly rose to the top of the list in our expert group voting for the most important vulnerability," said Wilson. "Contrast is the first security solution to respond to this new industry standard list by delivering this capability. Organizations can now identify susceptible data flows to their LLMs, providing security with the visibility needed to identify risks and prevent unintended exposure."
According to the OWASP Top 10 for LLMs, a prompt injection vulnerability allows an attacker to craft inputs that can manipulate the operation of a trusted LLM. This results in the LLM acting as a "confused deputy" on behalf of the attacker. Given the high degree of trust usually associated with an LLM's output, the manipulated responses may go unnoticed and may even be trusted by the user, allowing the attack to potentially poison search results, deliver incorrect or malicious responses, produce malicious code, circumvent content filters, or to leak sensitive data. Prompt injections can be introduced via various avenues, including websites, emails, documents or any other data source that an LLM might rely on.
Contrast is ideal for identifying all types of injection accurately, including this new form of AI prompt injection. Contrast uses runtime security to monitor actual application behavior and detect vulnerabilities, rather than scanning source code or simulating attacks. This approach is fast, easy and highly accurate, ensuring that developers are instantly notified of issues and provided all the information they need to correct problems. User input sent through OpenAI's official Python API to an LLM in a Python agent-instrumented application triggers the prompt injection rule.
