Device Management

A core part of directory services is the ability to manage and control devices. This systems management capability enables IT admins to ensure devices are secure, systems are in compliance with policies, and devices can be remotely supported. JumpCloud’s systems management functionality executes commands and sets policies on Windows, Mac, and Linux devices. Combined with JumpCloud’s core authentication and authorization capabilities, Directory-as-a-Service®, systems management capabilities provide a comprehensive solution to controlling devices.

JumpCloud’s device management capabilities can execute any command or script on Windows, Mac, and Linux devices. A lightweight agent is installed on each device and connected to the JumpCloud console. Commands and tasks can be created in any language that the device supports and can accomplish complex tasks as needed. Tasks can be executed on an ad hoc basis, scheduled, or triggered via webhook from an external system. All task results are available with full information on success or failure. Numerous tasks and policies can be created including screen locks, disk encryption, mapping drives, running scripts at startup or shutdown, and many others.

IT admins often struggle to control their Windows, Mac, and Linux systems. JumpCloud’s command and task execution capabilities increase control, security, and visibility. Additionally, IT admins can remotely support their users through JumpCloud’s system management functionality.
