Welcome to JumpCloud’s March Newsletter.
Whether end users are in the office or working remotely, the secret to managing and securing their devices is the same: a unified directory platform. Read on to learn how to get your users up and running quickly with security measures for anywhere they log in.
Meet Directory-Integrated Zero-Touch Mac Enrollment
Onboarding remote Mac users has never been so easy. With JumpCloud’s Zero-Touch Enrollment, admins take onboarding from hours to minutes, and users work with secure and frictionless access to all their resources at first login. Because JumpCloud unifies identity and device management in a single directory platform, admins can now add a new employee’s identity to the appropriate groups in the JumpCloud directory and bind that user to their device at first login, enabling automatic configuration and immediate access to the right resources.
Your New Homepage in the Admin Portal Is Here
You have a new home base in JumpCloud: the Homepage in the Admin Portal! Your Homepage makes it easy to start your day with a single view of statuses, allowing you to quickly see tasks and issues that require action in one place. The new, customizable JumpCloud Homepage surfaces and aggregates directory data including user lockouts, expired passwords, and devices that need full-disk encryption enabled.
Increase Security with Geofencing for Web Apps
Make it harder for bad actors to breach business applications and high-value resources protected by the User Portal with country-specific policies to allow or deny resource access from specified locales, and combine your geofencing policies with additional device and multi-factor authentication (MFA) requirements.
Import Users at Lightning Speed
Quickly search for and import existing users from Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 without ever leaving your core directory platform. Then, federate those identities to devices, applications, networks, and all other resources with a single, unified identity for each user.
