Casper Self Service, developed by JAMF Software, is a comprehensive management system for Apple OS X computers. With Casper, devices enrolled in the system are given access to a "Self Service" program that allows our Mac users to choose what programs or configurations to install from a catalog provided by the IT Department. IT can also proactively deploy and maintain software, respond to security threats and distribute settings.
- Provides an easy to use user interface for downloading and installing University programs
- Catalog of configurations (such as VPN and wireless) to quickly connect to UCCS resources
- Increased security with remote security tools
