About Kandji

Kandji is building the future of Apple Enterprise Management. The use of Apple devices in the enterprise is growing rapidly. Drawing on decades of experience in Apple IT, we saw a dire need for a modern Apple device management platform that could accommodate growing businesses and increasing regulatory demands.

Behind our business is a handful of the best investors in tech. Together, we are creating a new category of device management that can better serve modern businesses.
