Want to learn about Linux user management using JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service® platform? Admins who manage their Linux users with our cloud identity management solution are able to natively create accounts or import them from existing directories. They can then connect those users to IT resources via LDAP, SAML, and RADIUS among other protocols. IT organizations that are managing a fleet of Linux servers within their own data centers, or at Infrastructure-as-a-Service providers such as AWS and Google Cloud, can greatly benefit from a cloud user management platform.

Benefits of this approach include robust remote management of users and an employee self-service portal that helps reduce IT workload. View the video below for a walkthrough of the different management abilities that are available to you.
