This month’s newsletter focuses on the theme of growth. At JumpCloud, we’re always committed to Making (Remote) Work Happen™ for you, our user base, which means constantly growing and expanding our offerings.
February 2022 had a few very exciting new releases. Read on to check them all out.
Introducing… JumpCloud Patch Management
With the first release of JumpCloud Patch Management, admins can now easily create schedules and manage their Mac and Windows OS patch processes in a single console. This addition to the JumpCloud Directory Platform provides greater visibility and reporting, while strengthening your devices’ security posture and meeting organizational compliance needs.
Coming Soon! Reset Your Password Using a Recovery Email
Users will soon be able to self-serve one of the most common issues related to password management: resetting their password through a recovery email, i.e., personal email, in addition to their work email address.
This update will decrease IT workloads by allowing users to handle a frequent issue without IT intervention. And, because the password reset workflow is secured with MFA, you can feel more confident that the process is secure.

Join us to get hands-on experience and learn how you can reduce IT cost and complexity by consolidating directory, identity access, device management, and security into a single cloud platform.

macOS Keychain Application Access
For organizations who use both Device Trust and certificate distribution to manage macOS devices, application authorization just got much easier for end users.
JumpCloud admins can now authorize applications as “trusted” in the admin console. Once added to the list of trusted applications, your end users will no longer be prompted to provide a JumpCloud keychain password, streamlining the process to access trusted applications and reducing potential friction when establishing Device Trust policies.
