In a world that has rapidly shifted away from traditional perimeter security for IT environments, small and midsize enterprises (SMEs or SMBs) need a hyper-efficient, cost-effective way to implement a security model as dynamic as they are. JumpCloud removes the barriers to implementing Zero Trust security models for IT Admins who don’t have extensive resources. 

We’ve simplified how security is enabled by building identity, device, and access management around a cloud directory platform. Admins benefit from consolidated security controls and a centralized view of who has access to what. This makes life easier for understaffed IT teams who want to have best-in-class security. 

This modern, cloud-based, directory-centric approach to security was recognized at this year’s RSA, where JumpCloud received the “Cutting Edge in SMB Cybersecurity” Global InfoSec Award. Presented by Cyber Defense Magazine, the 2021 Global InfoSec Awards honored global innovators in the information security space who have unique and compelling technologies.

JumpCloud embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach.

The JumpCloud Directory Platform stood out amongst a pool of other InfoSec solutions submitted by candidates ranging in size from startups to public companies. The judges—CISSP, FMDHS, CEH certified security professionals—cast their votes after independent reviews of our website and materials, including the white paper Simplify Zero Trust Security from the Cloud.

Cyber Defense Magazine is always on the lookout for cutting-edge technology and asking “What’s Next?” in information security. The passionate professionals behind the magazine’s Global InfoSec Awards have identified JumpCloud’s redefinition of the directory as a Next Generation InfoSec Solution.

Next-Generation IT Security Management

The days of primarily in-office work and on-prem infrastructure are behind us. Today’s IT Admins are managing dispersed workforces and hybrid IT environments, which means internal networks and firewalls are no longer sufficient for securing access to corporate resources. User identities, resource access, and devices need to be secured wherever they are, from anywhere.

JumpCloud empowers SMEs to accomplish this via a cloud directory platform that secures access to Mac, Windows, and Linux devices, plus networks, applications, and other resources from a single, web-based console. Zero Trust security is at the core of what we do. Every access transaction is secured and no user or activity is trusted by default. 

Implementation of Zero Trust does not need to be expensive or labor intensive, nor does it need to complicate user workflows. Our platform makes it easy for admins to establish a comprehensive and granular verification strategy that addresses:
