June Newsletter: Get More Out Of JumpCloud

By Zach DeMeyer Posted June 27, 2018

We now provide a streamlined and automated process for admins to manage their users on FileVault enabled High Sierra systems. Through the introduction of new operations in our latest macOS system agent, we are able to easily provision JumpCloud users to your High Sierra encrypted volumes without additional configuration steps.

One of the main benefits of our new approach is that it will allow a High Sierra Mac user to simply log into their new Mac host one time, and be automatically enabled into their FileVault encrypted volume. To learn more, you can visit our support documentation here.Secure Token

MFA User Reset in Admin Console

JumpCloud now includes an easy way to reset your users MFA TOTP token in our Admin Console. This feature will allow you to better assist your users if they are having difficulties with their existing MFA TOTP token. If you are looking to automate this process, you can also reset a user’s MFA TOTP Token via our API.
