The JumpCloud team is back from the 29th annual Interop awards in Las Vegas with big news. As Forbes announced today, “the Directory as a Service offering from JumpCloud swept the awards at this year’s Interop conference in Las Vegas.”

JumpCloud won the Best of Interop 2015 Awards, winning the Grand Prize and winning in the Applications Category. On April 30th 2015, Interop announced that JumpCloud had also won the Audience Choice award.

Boulder-based JumpCloud beat out national heavyweights such as Dell, Cisco, and VMware. JumpCloud received more than twice as many votes as any other company.

“I wouldn’t have thought that was possible,” commented David F. Carr in Forbes, “just based on the number of Cisco people in the audience.”

We at JumpCloud see the awards as a sign that people are catching on to the huge potential of Directory-as-a-Service to bring the directory securely into the cloud. We would like to thank all the attendees at Interop 2015 for selecting us from such a qualified and exceptional group of finalists. We are honored to be selected.
