Open directory platform adoption and user satisfaction grow as IT admins seek out a single tool to centralize and secure IT management
LOUISVILLE, Colo. — June 22, 2022 — Open directory platform provider JumpCloud today announced it has been named a leader in six identity, device, and directory categories by G2, the business technology industry’s most trusted source for customer reviews. JumpCloud’s extended leadership within privileged access management (PAM), mobile device management (MDM), single sign-on (SSO), user provisioning and governance tools (UGA), identity and access management (IAM), and cloud directory services categories is based in part on its 1,203 reviews and ratings from verified G2 users. JumpCloud again secured the No. 1 position in the Grid® Report for Cloud Directory Services — the only vendor to consistently hold the position since the advent of the report. It also landed the No. 1 spot in G2’s Grid® Report for Mid-Market Cloud Directory Services.
“IT environments are only getting more complex and costly, and it’s no surprise that organizations are looking for more convenience, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness in managing them,” said Jagadeesh Kunda, chief product officer, JumpCloud. “Our mission has always been to empower admins with simple and secure control over their entire IT environment, and we’re honored that G2 users continue to choose and champion JumpCloud’s open directory platform.”
“As we were still growing a company during the pandemic, we also wanted to manage end-user devices, identities, and implement more security before we grew larger than what we were,” said Salar Sahraeian, manager of IT, Article. “We wanted a solution that enabled us to manage and monitor all of our devices, while securing our data. And that’s exactly what JumpCloud provided us with.”
