JumpCloud is committed to building a strong operational platform in the cloud identity management space. A part of that commitment is our yearly examination of our control environment. JumpCloud’s SOC 2 examination focused on the areas of security, availability, and confidentiality for our Directory-as-a-Service™ platform. JumpCloud’s examination was conducted by Schellman & Company, Inc., an independent CPA firm.
JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service (DaaS) platform is a cloud-based directory service that connects user identities to the IT resources that those users need. Those IT resources could include systems, applications, or networks. The core benefit of an Identity-as-a-Service platform is the ability to securely control user access and manage your systems. JumpCloud eliminates the need for on-prem directory services and provides key functionality such as centralized user management, LDAP-as-a-Service, True Single Sign-On, WiFi authentication, device management, multi-factor authentication, and more. JumpCloud’s SaaS-based directory service is easy for IT admins to implement and even better for end users. It provides a single set of credentials to access just about any IT resource.
A core component on the value that JumpCloud brings is that the solution is delivered as a service. This ensures that IT admins don’t need to worry about hardware, software, or maintenance tasks. As any IT admin will tell you, the heavy lifting is in the operations of systems, and that’s a pain point that JumpCloud resolves. With the move to the cloud and systems such as Google Apps or Microsoft Office 365, IT admins are searching for ways to shift their core identity management platform to the cloud as well. A prerequisite for that move is trust. JumpCloud is building trust with our customers and users by taking strong steps with security and privacy while having those efforts examined on a regular basis through penetration testing and reviews of our controls through independent examinations.
