All of the Functionality, None of the Setup

Cloud-hosted LDAP provides you with all of the abilities of the LDAP protocol with none of the usual setup, maintenance, or failover requirements of traditional LDAP implementations. Since our cloud LDAP servers are already stood up and ready to use, all you need to do is point your LDAP-connected endpoints to JumpCloud and you’re on your way.

No Server Hardware

Cloud LDAP means no need for on-premises hardware — and all of the maintenance involved with keeping hardware up to date like patching and failover.

Always On

JumpCloud's global network of LDAP servers is built for high uptime and low latency. We take care of the availability, security, load balancing, elastic scaling, and redundancy so you don’t have to.

Group Control

Establish LDAP access based on user groups to manage authorization by the principle of least privilege.

Benefits of Cloud LDAP

Complete Control

Manage LDAP access from your browser through the JumpCloud Admin Portal, as well as through your command line or our RESTful APIs. With group-based access controls, you can streamline LDAP management to best suit your needs.

Hyper Secure

Our OpenLDAP RFC 2307 compliant cloud LDAP offering is encrypted by LDAPS & Start TLS, ensuring your LDAP authentication remains as secure as possible. What’s more, you can require multi-factor authentication upon entry to LDAP resources to keep your data locked down.

AuthN to Apps & Services

JumpCloud provides authentication for any application or service that can defer authentication via LDAP. Integrate with apps such as Atlassian Jira and Confluence or with DevOps infrastructure such as Jenkins, Ansible, Kubernetes, Docker, OpenVPN, and thousands of others.

NAS Authentication with LDAP & Samba Attributes

LDAP-as-a-Service includes secure support for authentication and group-based authorization on Samba file servers or commercial NAS appliances such as Synology, QNAP, Morro Data, and more.


Practically zero implementation time for a full fledged LDAP directory with policy management for Mac, Windows and Linux, client OS integration (even for password changes), multiple directory sources, legacy support for AD environments, and much more.
