“As global citizens, we have a duty to help with the virus’s containment,” said Rajat Bhargava, co-founder and CEO of JumpCloud. “I’m incredibly proud of the Colorado tech community for leading the nation in taking charge to prevent the spread of this virus. JumpCloud has initiated a mandatory work from home policy to ensure no concentration of employees in any given area. We are educating our employees about the virus by closely following the WHO and CDC guidelines in addition to our various state and local governmental educational programs. We’re taking additional concrete steps to prevent any spread by banning any business travel for an indefinite period of time. Our obligation is to protect the health and well-being of our team, and ensure we’re preventing the spread of COVID-19.”
The COVID-19 pandemic is creating a large impact on organizations worldwide. That impact comes in many forms: new ways and places to work, how IT supports a remote organization to be productive and secure, and how employees still connect to build a strong, positive organizational culture. JumpCloud as a company and a platform was built for this type of situation. Its cloud directory aims to enable work securely from anywhere, anytime.
“JumpCloud is one hundred percent operational,” said Jim Burglin, senior director of customer success at JumpCloud. “You may continue to engage with JumpCloud sales and support in the same capacities you always do with the same service level commitments including email, chat, phone, social media, and our website. Our business operations team has developed contingency plans in the event that some of our operations or support personnel are unable to work. JumpCloud has multiple teams in multiple geographic locations to support our customers. Our infrastructure and ops teams have built-in redundancies and personnel that are available on-call 24x7x365.”
