G2 Crowd has released its Fall 2021 reports and more than 800 JumpCloud users have spoken: the JumpCloud Directory Platform is solving more identity, device management, and security problems, allowing IT teams to consolidate tools and technology — reducing cost and overall complexity. 

In all, G2 named JumpCloud as a leader and/or high performer in a total of 44 reports! Ranking improved across 6 reports spanning single sign-on (SSO), identity and access management (IAM), and ease of implementation. Our accelerating scores and inclusion in new evaluations reflect terrific user experiences. They demonstrate just how quickly the JumpCloud platform is growing into new markets and maturing in existing ones.

Equally important – these reports showcase the success IT teams using JumpCloud are able to achieve no matter what global pandemic, BYOD, or other obstacles come their way! 

Here are just a few of the comments reviewers have made about JumpCloud:

One of the best alternatives to Active Directory

We do not need to worry about joining multi-platform devices since this supports Linux, MAC, and Windows. It integrates well with O365; hence we do not have to worry, and it’s scalable.

Ashutosh S, Sr System Admin Lead Engineer

The first and most crucial step on my Zero Trust Networking and various compliance initiatives.

For me, this feels a little like Git for Users/Devices in that I trust that this is where my users/devices live, not spread out across dozens of disparate systems. Also… dead simple ssh with mfa on Linux… MIND BLOWN!

Very strong up and coming SSO and MDM provider

JumpCloud is a solid option for businesses looking to move away from the classic Active Directory setup and looking for something more based on the cloud. It has excellent support for SAML/SSO applications. It features a good MDM option for both Mac and Windows systems. You can easily set groups for easy Identity Management, so you may effortlessly provide different applications to users according to their role or their individual needs.
