The move to the cloud, while widely adopted, is still being met with trepidation. It’s an understandable point of view. Many are wary of the cloud when it comes to security, productivity, and compliance. After all, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Traditional IT methods have worked so far, so why try to mess with that success?

As creators of the first cloud directory service, JumpCloud® has worked with many organizations that have concerns about the cloud. We have compiled a collection of statistics about moving to the cloud and the benefits of a cloud directory service. You can see our findings in the infographic below.


As you can see, the shift to a cloud directory service can provide staggering results for IT organizations. With upticks in security and productivity, as well as benefits for compliance and end user freedom of choice, it should come as no surprise that over 75k organizations use a cloud directory service.
