Created by Tim Howes and his colleagues at the University of Michigan, the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, or LDAP, is the sire of the modern directory service. JumpCloud has reimagined LDAP as LDAP-as-a-Service for today's IT organizations.


Cloud LDAP for MSPs

Cloud LDAP-as-a-Service reduces challenges while providing remote, multi-tenant authentication to MSPs. Try it for free to see for yourself.


SSO for LDAP Apps

IT admins can enable workflows for on-prem and cloud LDAP apps that are similar to the workflows for SaaS apps that use SAML.

OpenLDAP 101

After almost three decades, OpenLDAP™ is still the premier open-source LDAP implementation. Here’s a primer on what it can do.

With the growing popularity of Google Apps, many IT organizations are interested in a solution that will allow them to integrate G Suite with OpenLDAP.


OpenLDAP to Active Directory Migration

IT admins with an OpenLDAP directory often examine other directories to provide more functionality in managing Mac and Windows systems.


Migrate to Cloud OpenLDAP

IT admins may be interested in migrating their OpenLDAP servers to a cloud-based LDAP platform to ditch the upkeep of legacy, on-prem hardware.


On-Demand LDAP Server

Setting up on-prem LDAP servers represents an upfront cost, as well as ongoing costs. On-demand LDAP servers help mitigate both expenditures.
