A Guide to JumpCloud’s Platform Support

A critical component of JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service® solution is its ability to work with a number of different platform and protocols.

Directories are the glue that hold the IT organization together. They help securely connect every user within an organization to the IT resources they need whether that be devices (desktops, laptops, servers, and other compute devices) or applications (G Suite, CRM systems, content management systems, etc).

In today’s business culture, directories need to reflect the complexity of business environments. Specifically this means they need to operate seamlessly with both on-premise and cloud-based infrastructures, and frequently changing employee access privileges.

This is precisely what JumpCloud was designed to do.

JumpCloud is the first cloud-based directory that serves as a nexus for all IT infrastructures. Our goal is to match our platform to the unique needs and systems that our customers have. As a result, JumpCloud supports a wide array of protocols, platforms, and applications. Check the list below to see our vast platform support.
