Our Story

At JumpCloud, our mission is to build a world-class cloud directory. Not just the evolution of Active Directory to the cloud, but a reinvention of how modern IT teams get work done. The JumpCloud Directory Platform is a directory for your users, their IT resources, your fleet of devices, and the secure connections between them with full control, security, and visibility.

-Rajat Bhargava, CEO, JumpCloud

Our Story

In 2008, Rajat Bhargava (CEO) and Larry Middle built a network security company called StillSecure, and through that venture they learned about Microsoft Active Directory’s stronghold on the market. They spoke with IT teams and learned that there were no viable alternatives to AD.

They revisited the concept in 2012: Companies still struggled to manage user access for Linux servers in AWS. Rajat and Larry began to gather feedback that a viable AD alternative should manage not only access to cloud infrastructure but also Mac and Windows machines and on-premises infrastructure. They solidified the idea to build a next-generation cloud directory platform.

They understood that IT administrators needed a comprehensive platform to manage a growing number of cloud infrastructure and storage solutions, macOS and Linux devices, web applications, WiFi and VPN networks, and remote employees. Although it was still a radical concept at the time, Rajat and Larry believed that the entire directory would ultimately shift to the cloud.

Fast forward to today, and we’re grateful for the 150K+ organizations on this journey with us. It’s clear that the vision was right. Rajat and Larry have recruited amazing partners to build a world-class platform and organization, including Sapphire Ventures, General Atlantic, Sands Capital, Atlassian, and CrowdStrike.
