What is JumpCloud Directory Platform?

JumpCloud is an open directory platform for secure, frictionless access from any device to any resource, anywhere. JumpCloud’s mission is to Make Work Happen®, providing simple, secure access to corporate technology resources from any device, or any location. The JumpCloud Directory Platform gives IT, security operations, and DevOps a single, cloud-based solution to control and manage employee identities, their devices, and apply Zero Trust principles.

Key benefits of using JumpCloud Directory Platform

  • Securely manage and connect user identities to multiple IT resources including systems, applications, networks, and files, regardless of platform, protocol, provider, or location.

  • Eliminate the insecure practice of sharing passwords and SSIDs, and integrate WiFi and VPN appliances to leverage each users’ individual credentials and group membership for appropriate authorization.

  • Get access to system management capabilities from a single browser-based admin console. Enforce policies, execute ad-hoc scripts, authenticate users, and set password requirements.

  • Streamline authentication and authorization for web and on-premises applications with JumpCloud’s SAML 2.0 and LDAP protocols, including additional IT resources such as printers and phone directories.

  • Connect NAS appliances, Samba file servers, and cloud storage to JumpCloud’s virtual LDAP service to secure access to users' files, home directories, and other data assets.

    Pros
    Not only is their entire team from sales, to customer success, to engineering, to support amazing, they are very fast to jump on any issues or features you are interested in to help.
    Easy integration with my UniFi (UID) service. Amazing UI and perfect documentation.
    JumpCloud is by far the best solution for those smaller businesses that don't have the time or the budget for a dedicated IT team.
    Cons
    Still missing some functionality that we need as an organization.
    At times the instructions can seem vague and maybe presume too much.
    Not having to maintain an internal LDAP directory has been a substantial burden that was lifted by JumpCloud.

    Pricey but Worth it to the Right Organizations

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    With the move to the Cloud for so many applications and the move to the home for so many workers, Active Directory doesn't make sense for the typical organization. Based on trust of devices and better suited for office-centric installations, the "Zero Trust" aspect of JumpCloud allows you to free the users from the office network and safely access corporate data from anywhere with a high degree of security and control.

    Pros

    Powerful features allowing you to integrate Single Sign-On and develop a platform for frictionless access from any device to any resource. It gives me as an MSP (Managed Service Provider) the ability to manage access security from a single cloud-based platform.

    Cons

    Pricing can add up quickly, and a prospective user should carefully plan out your implementation strategy so you can look at their different pricing scenarios and not overbuy. Also, there is weakness in the strategies for security revolving around password resets and for lost/stolen mobile devices.

    Great functional product that tackles most of the Central management and directory functions

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Jumpclouds offering has great features and helps simplify the central user management issue we had. Importing users from Gsuite which was the main system that housed all our users centrally was simple, albeit lacking granular import options (such as ignore mailgroups etc) Systems (which are devices) is the inventory of all your systems running the jumpcloud agent - the greatest feature here is being...

    Pros

    Support right through the demo to the purchase, to the implementation. Success criteria are agreed between yourselves and them. They're improving the product almost daily and have the ability to use web-hooks to monitor service status' The ease in which you are able to integrate Gsuite (as well as multiple ways to import users from your existing central directory) It also gives you the ability to tailor...

    Cons

    A few tricky bits around JC > Gsuite integration wording that take some time to get your head around when integrating and activating accounts once imported. The admin vs user console login is dynamic and handled via one URL making it a little frustrating to see what the user profile looks like as you have to log out/open a new window to log in as a user - they should be separate logins URLS/Pages...

    Cylus Review

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    We are new to it, seems nice and easy to use but the MAJOR issue is locking us out of our PCs without any warnings and that caused us to pause the usage - a shame - as we worked hard to integrate it and were excited about using it.

    Pros

    The fact that I can have an active directory and SSO managed for Macs/Ubuntu and Window users all in one place is amazing

    Cons

    There's a bug and it locks our users, especially in Ubunto but also in Macs and it caused a HUGE inconvenience for us. Takes support time to respond. Initial chat response is quick, but when we need the professional side ad-hock when I have an Executive locked out of his pc all day, it wasn't resolved

    Excellent Solution for User and Device Management, Directory and Security

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    We are using JumpCloud as central directory, for SSO, for device and user management and partially MDM functionality. We love the support service, their incredibly enthusiastic and helpful staff. Support is brilliant! They are response time is sometimes hard to believe. The speed with which they have implemented features they mentioned in phone calls a few days before... we are well impressed. The end user experience is simple and assigning users to devices is lightning fast. JumpCloud helps us leverage zero touch deployment as well. We love that it has so many SSO integrations, too.

    Pros

    Great UI, self explanatory, fast and works in almost any browser (desktop and mobile). The ease of use is incredible. Basically no learning curve at all.

    Cons

    It would be great to have even more MDM functionality, especially for Mac and mobile devices.

    Swiss army knife for IAM and IT management

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Overall very much satisfied for the commitment made with JumpCloud with it’s features and timely aupport

    Pros

    Cross platform support is the important feature I like about with the power of automation through script execution and policy management.

    Cons

    Software management is the least interesting feature through it supports Chocalatey package manager out of the box, it would be bit risky to use the community packages. Custom package deployment through chocalatey is pain for the admin to setup securely
