Welcome to JumpCloud’s May Newsletter.
We tend to think that big, unexpected events will disrupt our projects. Instead, it’s the simple, everyday activities that derail us time and time again.
When simple tasks like imposing multi-factor authentication, aiding in password resets, or simply viewing basic user details are streamlined, our strategic plans can stay on track.
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) makes access transactions more secure, but despite the clear benefits it brings, resistance and frustration from end users can make its rollout a challenge.
JumpCloud Protect makes it easy for IT admins to deploy and enforce MFA without adversely impacting end users.
Conditional Auth to Applications
It’s difficult to strike the right balance between security and ease of access, especially at scale. This can result in one-size-fits-all policies that treat all applications the same. The net result: access to low-risk apps contains unnecessary friction for end users, while high-risk apps lack security controls.
With this feature expansion, conditional access policies can streamline users’ access to applications, increasing security requirements when necessary to maintain high standards and reducing friction across the board.
Know What Your Users Can Access
Your users need to log into their laptops, connect over Slack, SSO into AWS, and gather in Google Meet. To make sure this is happening, you need tools to easily map who has access to what.
Now, get one-click access to user highlights and view each user’s associated groups, apps, devices, and directories (like Google and Microsoft) for easy visibility across resources.
