Otta's take

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

Device and application management is essential for the maintenance of an IT stack, with particular emphasis on frequent updating and compliance. This can be a laborious and repetitive task, so management software exists to automate these processes. However, existing solutions are generally aimed towards IT departments running on Windows.

Kandji provides a mobile device management platform that facilitates the remote maintenance of Apple-based IT stacks. Users can manage IT devices, applications, networking and compliance within a zero-touch automation system. The need for this service in companies using Apple hardware is clear: it has been adopted by major enterprises such as Belkin, Crunchbase and Notion.

Launched in 2019, the company has completed multiple rounds of funding and is continuing to grow at a rapid pace. As the Apple device management market is also expanding at speed, Kandji is well poised to continue its run of success.
