Last Thursday, Rob Westervelt at CRN posted his top 10 security startups of 2013. We are honored that Rob included JumpCloud® in his list. Rob’s one of the great security writers and he’s in the know on everything security. While JumpCloud is more of a cloud-based directory service, a key component of what we are doing is security. Providing IT admins with a quick, easy, and effective way to keep your identities secure is in our humble opinion the holy grail – as is gaining the productivity organizations experience with connecting identities to the IT resources they need. DevOps and IT admins just don’t have the time to devote to keeping up with all of the security threats, tools, and data, but they need to know that they are secure and compromised identities are the number one attack vector. That’s JumpCloud’s hypothesis around security. Protecting identities and securing user access to devices, cloud servers, on-prem applications, SaaS-based services, WiFi networks, and more is critical to ensuring that an organization doesn’t get hacked. Great security isn’t the goal of DevOps and IT folks. Great applications that are secure that increase revenue and profit are! That’s a huge difference and JumpCloud takes that to heart. We have to be focused on helping our customers increase their pace of innovation. A next generation, cloud identity service can be critical to an organization’s agility and security.
Proud to Learn JumpCloud Named Top 10 Security Startup
We are proud of being included in CRN’s Top 10 list and are looking forward to continuing to innovate for our Directory-as-a-Service® customers and partners!
