JumpCloud is unique. Our focus on applying product-led growth principles to IT infrastructure sets us apart from the juggernauts that have dominated the directory services, identity and access management, and device management categories. At our core, we believe that reimagining how IT and DevOps securely manage and connect users to IT resources will lead to a complete disruption of established markets. Building a cloud directory platform that reduces complexity by integrating a number of categories of solutions (think directory services, SSO, MDM, MFA, PAM, IGA, and more) as core functionality makes it vastly easier for our customers, who often have limited IT personnel and budget, to get work done. It’s a big vision and we check regularly for signs that we are on the right path. 

Today, G2 acknowledged JumpCloud across several categories for Best Software of 2021. These awards, which we received based on analysis of user submitted reviews, are a big sign for us that we are heading in the right direction. 

In 2020, G2 collected nearly a quarter of a million new software reviews which were read by nearly 40 million people. G2’s research team analyzes all of these verified user reviews to determine the top products and companies across a variety of categories. JumpCloud was recognized in several areas, including: 

  • Highest Satisfaction
  • Best Software Product
  • Best IT Cloud Management 
  • Best Remote Work Product
  • Best Mid-Market Product

User reviews are one of the most important ways for us to get feedback on our progress and we are incredibly grateful for everyone who takes the time out of their busy days to provide that input. These awards are meaningful to us because they validate many components of our core philosophy. These ideas are best expressed by some of the quotes included in the hundreds of reviews that customers posted about JumpCloud in 2020:

“JumpCloud provides a suite of tools and directory services to provide great remote support to our endpoints of every OS in our infrastructure from one pane of glass.”

“We picked JumpCloud mainly because it’s a newer player that is consistently improving its product with user feedback, and most importantly they have support for macOS, Windows, and Linux. They have great API documentation along with a Powershell module client to really expand the abilities above of what they show on the UI. The deployment process is also very easy with simple to implement terminal commands.”

“JumpCloud allows us to remotely manage devices. A huge benefit is being able to push updates to devices from the JumpCloud admin portal. We’ve also loved being able to set password expiration policies to help keep our users secure. We switched ESP’s this year and with JumpCloud we’re able to manage a G Suite directory and Azure AD in one place. That’s a really cool benefit during employee onboardings and offboardings.”

“JumpCloud’s flexibility without relying on server after server to link everything together really helps simplify the network organization. The Directory as a Service is a great alternative to Active Directory, which has been around for decades! Their RADIUS servers are easy to set up and allow you to further secure your network. There is a very intelligent MFA that doesn’t annoy your employees by knowing that there was a previous authentication and authorizing the login attempt when the system is shut down. Their support is very responsive and I highly recommend the premium support if you’re thinking about it. Overall ever since I was introduced to JumpCloud, I knew I had to get our company to this technology if we want to continue to be agile in the cloud.”

“Do not hesitate to give JumpCloud a try. Take their first 10 users free and create a Sandbox environment to try it out for yourself. I promise you , you will fall in love with this service and never look back at Active Directory again. Hop on a support call and try out their support and go through their University where they tailor to your style of learning.”

Thank you to all our users and customers for your valuable feedback and accolades. And thank you to G2 for incredible acknowledgment. We’re working even harder and smarter in 2021 to deliver new innovations and improvements for our customers.
