Always be in the know

It’s 5pm on a Friday. You’ve just received an email from a software vendor integral to your business functions, alerting you to a security patch to fix serious vulnerabilities. How quickly can you determine your Mac fleet’s security compliance?

With Kinobi,
know instantly

Kinobi is a patch management solution for Jamf Pro, allowing you to extend Jamf Pro’s inbuilt patch management functionality to include all Mac applications within your environment. Kinobi Pro extends Kinobi by also providing you with packaged and tested installers for each software title version, automatically added to your Jamf Pro distribution point.

1,500

patch definitions (and counting)

SIZE DOES MATTER

While Jamf Pro Patch Management covers around 50 software titles, Kinobi tracks hundreds of titles — and counting! Not only does Kinobi monitor software titles from major vendors such as Microsoft and Adobe, but also from small, independent vendors, open-source projects, and much more. And, if you request a title not currently in our library, we’ll begin tracking it for you, at no additional cost.

LESS TO-DOS. PERIOD.

For every out-of-date product that Jamf Pro reports, several action items appear on your to-do list: each product needs to be downloaded, packaged, and tested. Each product also brings with it a unique set of challenges and hurdles to make sure that deployment to your users is seamless and hassle-free. Kinobi Pro takes the headache out of packaging and testing so that you can focus on more pressing areas of your environment.

NO TWO SOFTWARE TITLES
ARE CREATED EQUAL. NOR ARE INSTALLATION PACKAGES.

Testing packages to ensure no disruption to your end users can be a time-consuming and laborious process. Hardware and software dependency checks, upgrades, clean installs... Kinobi Pro has you covered. No matter if you’re running the latest release of macOS or an older version of Mac OS X, you can have peace of mind knowing that your end users won’t end up with software they can’t use, or worse: software rendered unusable by a spurious update.

HAPPY END USERS = HAPPY IT ADMINS

Solve the eternal struggle between enforcing upgrades and end user downtime. All Kinobi Pro packages have the ability to notify end users currently using the packaged software title to either quit the application, or to have it automatically quit after a specified period. Let company-wide emails about software upgrades be a thing of the past.

FAQ

What software titles are you currently tracking?

Kinobi tracks hundreds of software titles (and counting). If you request a title not currently in our library, we’ll begin tracking it for you, at no additional cost.

Can you track [software title]?

Yes! In fact, we’d love to begin tracking a software title not currently in our library. Just let us know via our Service Desk and we’ll get it sorted for you.

What is the difference between the cloud and self-hosted versions of Kinobi?

With Kinobi in the cloud, we host and setup Kinobi for you, getting you up and running quickly and easily. The self-hosted version can be hosted on your own hardware — ideal for teams who want to manage their own infrastructure.

What happens when my free trial ends?

When your 30-day trial ends, Kinobi will continue to function as a paid subscription. You can cancel your subscription at any point during the trial, and your Kinobi subscription can be reactivated within 7-days without any loss to your service. For self-hosted customers, your Kinobi server will revert to the functionality of Kinobi Open-Source.

I love Kinobi! Can I receive a referral discount?

You sure can! In fact, we encourage you to refer us to your friends and colleagues, and want to reward you for doing so. Please visit our Payment Portal to access your referral code.

What do you mean by "securely connect from Jamf Pro"?

We’re just as security conscious as you: Kinobi and Kinobi Pro both connect to your Jamf Pro sever via HTTPS with a trusted third-party certificate.

Can you package scripts or settings?

Yes! Whether it's suppressing update checks, installing software licenses, or everything in between, Kinobi Pro has you covered. We can also package your custom scripts.

What do you mean by “suppress automatic updates for each software title, where available”?

Whilst most software titles allow for the disabling of automatic update checking, this is not true in rare instances. We will advise when this is not possible for a given software title.

What do you mean by “end user notification framework included within each package installer”?

Each Kinobi Pro install package alerts end users that an application may need to close due to a software installation — either because an application is being updated, or because the running application would conflict with the installation. These can be customised or removed entirely.

We produce in-house macOS software. Can this be packaged?

Absolutely! As long as your application does not require compilation as part of the installation process, we can package it for you.

We’re a reseller and would love to offer Kinobi to our customers! What’s the process?

We’d love to help you resell Kinobi and Kinobi Pro! Please get in touch with us via our Contact Us form.
