Welcome to JumpCloud’s April Newsletter.

Here’s everything you need to know this month about deploying software — and managing identities + devices — from our cloud directory platform.

Welcome to Your JumpCloud Home 

Your Admin Portal has a new homepage that gives you a customizable dashboard to start your day. Choose the widgets that appear in your homepage, monitor important metrics like user lockouts, and get one-click navigation to key tools in your directory platform to complete tasks and troubleshoot problems at lightning speed.

Install Mac Software Fast

Get software onto your users’ Mac devices faster — and in bulk. With JumpCloud’s Apple MDM, you can now silently install apps using Apple VPP on managed devices to reduce time-to-productivity for anything in the App Store.

Customize Your Windows Software Install

You have the power to control what software is on your users’ Windows devices and where it comes from. Create custom packages, host your own repository, and deploy those packages from the Admin Portal to devices anywhere.

Take Control of Your Devices 

Directory-integrated device management is powerful: binding devices with your user’s central identities increases security and reduces friction at the same time. This free online course shows how to extend core user identities to devices and lock them down with security controls, all from your core IT platform. 

Pick the Right AWS Service

Amazon is a cloud infrastructure behemoth — but how do you know what service is right for you? Use this new blog post to compare AWS IAM and AWS SSO, understand what best suits your organization, and strategize about how to securely manage your AWS users.
