Cloud RADIUS Service

JumpCloud’s Cloud RADIUS Service (RADIUS-as-a-Service) provides you with pre-built, pre-configured, scalable, and fully managed and maintained RADIUS servers. Add as many RADIUS servers as you like for WiFi access control, VPN authentication, and authentication for your network devices, servers, and applications. Cloud RADIUS complements JumpCloud’s other directory services capabilities, providing an additional method to authenticate your users across multiple services and clients.

A primary use case for Cloud RADIUS is the ability to control access to WiFi networks. Virtual RADIUS easily defines who — your whole organization or a subset — can access which WiFi networks. Granular control by city, office, or even floor is possible. All users and devices that need access to the WiFi network are tracked, including mobile phones and tablets.

SaaS-based RADIUS services are secure, leveraging TLS encryption to protect all information in transit. Of course, JumpCloud’s core Directory-as-a-Service® is secured through multiple layers of security.

You can even leverage JumpCloud’s temporary access control to provide limited-time access for vendors and traveling employees.
