What is DaaS

Authenticate

Ensure your users are who they say they are. JumpCloud authenticates your users to the devices and IT applications they need. JumpCloud supports a wide range of authentication protocols.

Authorize

Grant your users access to the resources they need, when they need it. JumpCloud ensures that the right users have the right level of access including controlling group membership and admin/root level access.

Manage

One directory to manage it all. Managing devices is a critical capability of a directory. IT admins can execute virtually any task or set of tasks on Windows, Mac, and Linux devices and your directory should not discriminate.

What does DaaS do?

Directory Services

The core of JumpCloud's Directory-as-a-Service® is the database that maps users to the applications, devices, and networks that users need. Directory services provide a framework to securely store and provide access to your organization's most important assets. Highly scalable, always-on, and requiring no installation or on-going management, DaaS provides IT admins with an easy-to-use interface and standards-based protocols to integrate with your infrastructure.

User Management

Eliminate identity sprawl - easily import all your user accounts into one place without duplication or fuss. JumpCloud is your single source for user information, passwords, and systems users can access in your organization.

Device Management

An organization's addition of Mac and Linux systems decreases IT control. JumpCloud's system management capabilities enable IT admins to regain the control they need. Now, Mac, Linux, and Windows systems can be centrally controlled through policies.

Google Apps Integration

By itself, Google Apps does not function as an organization’s directory service and doesn't provide device, application, or network authentication. Organizations utilizing Google Apps are moving their infrastructure to the cloud and don’t want to leverage an on-premises directory such as Microsoft Active Directory or OpenLDAP. JumpCloud Directory-as-a-Service® platform offers a tightly integrated cloud-based directory for organizations using Google Apps, extending Google Apps identities to devices, applications, and networks whether on-premises or in the cloud. JumpCloud adds one of the most significant missing components for Google Apps organizations – cloud-based directory services.

LDAP-as-a-Service

IT admins know how painful it is to implement LDAP. Besides just setting up and configuring LDAP, IT admins have the on-going maintenance of the service and figuring out how to connect all of a company's employees' devices, applications, and networks to it. That’s a lot of work. JumpCloud’s LDAP-as-a-Service gives IT organizations all of the benefits of LDAP (and more) without the heavy lifting. JumpCloud runs the LDAP servers, maintains everything, and has created standard mechanisms to connect IT resources to LDAP, allowing you to leverage LDAP without the work.

RADIUS-as-a-Service

Locking down your WiFi network is a snap with JumpCloud’s RADIUS-as-a-Service. No longer do IT admins need to spin up their own RADIUS server, hook it up to their wireless infrastructure, and then go user by user to setup deeper network control. With JumpCloud’s RADIUS-as-a-Service, IT admins simply point their WiFi network to JumpCloud and enable users via the JumpCloud web console. JumpCloud steps up your WiFi security game without any of the heavy lifting.

Microsoft® Active Directory® Bridge

JumpCloud extends Microsoft Active Directory to non-AD supported applications, networks, and systems. JumpCloud's Active Directory Bridge is easy to setup by deploying a small agent on your Domain Controller. As a result, users are extended to all of the IT resources they need.

REST API User Management

Part of creating an application is building the user management infrastructure. Whether the application is internal only or a public-facing application, creating, terminating, and updating user access is a fundamental requirement. Developers often spend valuable time writing code and managing this piece of an application. JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service® is a REST-based directory service for application developers. Simply embed the API calls to provision, deprovision, and authenticate users. Developers don’t need to worry about managing the user directory store or ensuring that it is always available. JumpCloud’s SaaS-based directory service does the heavy lifting.

Application Access

Provide your users single sign-on access to the applications they need most. DaaS provides end-user authentication and authorization to access your company’s critical applications. LDAP, RESTful APIs and single-sign on support for internal applications and leading SaaS vendors enable admins to provision and manage user access to both on-premise or hosted applications.

Password Complexity Management

Weak passwords are the quickest way to get compromised. Ensure that your users have strong, complex passwords with JumpCloud’s Password Complexity Builder functionality. IT admins can specify length, special characters, password reuse, and grace periods with JumpCloud’s Password Complexity capabilities. Password complexity and reuse is enforced on all devices, applications, and networks connected to JumpCloud. IT admins can rest easier knowing that their users cannot use passwords that can be easily cracked.

Group Management

Directory-as-a-Service® groups allows you to authorize your users to access the systems, devices, and applications they need. A simple to use interface helps associate users with the resources they need to access within these groups.

the SaaS in DaaS

Always Simple

Always Simple

Our mission is to take the complexity that's plagued directories away. Forever. Installation nightmares, management chores, unusable interfaces - everything that SaaS isn't. Everything a modern directory shouldn't be. No installation, simple to use interfaces and the ability to do more against more infrastructure. That is DaaS.

Always On

Always On

As a managed service, DaaS is always on. Leave the uptime and availability chores to JumpCloud and our infrastructure engineers who have designed integrity, performance, uptime and failover into the system from Day One. Our business is to ensure your employees have the access to the resources they need, when they need it. Always.

Always Scalable

Always Scalable

DaaS is elastic. It isn't waiting for you to take action when your directory requires more space, it automatically provisions what it needs on our robust cloud-based platform.

Always Secure

Always Secure

Security is difficult and expensive, but JumpCloud's team has decades of network security experience. We secure your data, so you can breathe easy knowing that your user information is safe and protected.
