Cross-OS System Management Just Got Easier!

Want to save time by automating routine tasks? Our new Policies feature provides a library of templates that admins can use to remotely configure and deploy specific settings to Windows, Mac, and Linux Systems. This enables you to enforce security standards and control the behavior of systems no matter where the machine is, without a VPN connection needed for Policies to ‘true up’. Policies are implemented through a graphical web UI, no code required. For a detailed guide on how to use and implement JumpCloud Policies, check out the Getting Started: Policies guide in our Knowledge Base.
