Locally founded software company Jamf announced its acquisition on Wednesday of NoMAD, a set of software products used to simplify administration of Mac computers.

The deal is intended to improve Jamf’s software, which is used by businesses, educational institutions and government organizations to manage their Apple-brand devices.

The open-source — available to all — and commercial versions of NoMAD will both continue, but Jamf will handle support and further development of them. The open-source version will retain the NoMAD name, but commercial versions will be folded into Jamf’s software and rebranded as Jamf Connect. Read the full story here.
