Our mission to connect users to whatever resources they need has been especially vital for our users in education, and we’re proud to announce that the EdTech Awards named JumpCloud a finalist in the Networking, Information Technology (IT), Connectivity, or Access Solution category. The US-based program is the largest recognition program in all of education technology and serves to recognize, acknowledge, and celebrate the most exceptional innovators, leaders, and trendsetters in education technology.

Enable Fast, Reliable Access Within Complex Environments

It’s no secret that IT admins at education institutions are resourceful, innovative, and bold. Managing the IT needs for students, staff, and faculty is complex, and that was before COVID-19 forced entire campuses to shift overnight to a remote model. Enabling fast, secure, and easy connection to resources isn’t negotiable, and the proliferation of different device types and operating systems adds IT complications for learning institutions of all sizes. 

JumpCloud is a natural choice for many educational organizations because we offer unique value at each point along an IT journey. For those who are cloud-first and fluent in SaaS applications and architectures, JumpCloud offers an easy-to-manage directory-based platform that can be seamlessly integrated with existing solutions. For those organizations that are heavy on legacy infrastructure, JumpCloud can work with or replace systems like Active Directory, reducing tooling costs and IT headaches, while unifying user identity, access, and device management from a single pane of glass. 

“Provisioning to eight or nine different applications used to take an hour or so per user. Now, you establish the account in JumpCloud and users are provisioned within 20-30 minutes.”

Jim Shreve, Director of Technology, Nome Public Schools
