LOUISVILLE, Colo. — May 2, 2023 — JumpCloud Inc. today announced JumpCloud Password ManagerTM was named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Identity & Access Security Solution category in The 21st Annual American Business Awards®.
Despite industry momentum toward passwordless authentication, many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and managed service providers (MSPs) need to ensure employee access for legacy applications that use passwords or are incompatible with single sign-on (SSO). Navigating these complicated IT environments means employees often sacrifice best security practices and rely on weak or reused passwords, creating organizational vulnerability. While traditional password managers aimed to solve the issue, they still placed the ultimate responsibility for password security on the end user managing a master password, leaving a significant security hole.
As part of an open directory platform, the JumpCloud Password Manager is built on a decentralized architecture, where password vaults are stored locally on user devices and are synced in an end-to-end encrypted manner between multiple devices through the use of cloud servers. JumpCloud’s modern approach to password management architecture increases user productivity and strengthens security through a simple, seamless authentication experience. Because of its open directory approach to identity and device management, customers can easily integrate JumpCloud Password Manager with JumpCloud SSO within a single platform as IT capacity and infrastructure matures.
“Our users regularly tell us how an open directory approach gives them the flexibility and cost-savings that allows them to optimize their IT environment,” said Cate Lochead, chief marketing officer, JumpCloud. “This American Business Award for JumpCloud Password Manager is further validation of JumpCloud’s success giving IT teams a modern platform to securely and easily connect users to whatever IT resources they need, so they can focus on making work happen.”
The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations — public and private, for-profit and nonprofit, large and small.

JumpCloud Password Manager was nominated in the Identity & Access Security Solution category. More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.
“It is very gratifying for us to be able to recognize the achievements of such a wide variety of organizations, teams, and individuals in the 21st ABAs, and we look forward to bringing them together in New York on June 13 to celebrate with them,” said Maggie Miller, president of the Stevie Awards.
