A Single Identity Bridge Connects Disparate Resources to AD

Securely extend users’ AD credentials to virtually all of their IT resources, whether or not those resources are inside the domain, Windows-based, or Kerberos-supporting. Instead of utilizing multiple add-ons such as web app SSO, MFA solutions, identity bridges to Mac and Linux, and on-prem RADIUS/LDAP servers, IT admins can leverage just one tool to envelop their AD instance and manage these functions.

Active Directory Administration for the Cloud Era

Because Directory-as-a-Service® was built to stand on its own as a cloud-hosted core directory in place of AD, it’s also naturally suited to function as the ultimate extension for AD-centric environments. JumpCloud’s deep, directory-level AD Integration delivers all the benefits of a modern cloud directory service for organizations that can’t feasibly replace their core IT infrastructure right now. With a true bi-directional sync, it even lets admins remotely manage AD identities, groups, provisioning, and deprovisioning AD users entirely from the JumpCloud web console.

Group-based user and device management for Mac, Linux, and remote or non-domain-bound Windows machines

User self-serve password changes at the device level write back to AD

Bind Mac systems to AD without SecureToken issues

Execute GPO-like policies including full disk encryption with FileVault 2

Integrate AWS®, G Suite™ and/or Office 365™ with AD; no need for Azure AD® or other identity bridges

Enforce and manage multi-factor authentication (MFA) across your environment

Eliminate shadow IT applications and security dead zones by giving users one set of AD credentials to access virtually all their resources

“In this day and age of the cloud, it just makes sense to be able to manage IT resources from a central place – and that’s why JumpCloud became such a perfect tool for us.”

—Andy Halvorsen , Global IT Director at Ooyala

Benefits

Powerful Domain Extension

Get more out of your investment in Active Directory and accelerate your transition to the cloud. Boost efficiency by controlling AD users, groups, and more with a single web-based admin console.

One AD Identity for All IT Resources

Give users a single set of credentials to access virtually every work resource they need. For IT, avoid a daisy chain of add-ons to complete what a modern directory should already do: help you work smarter with fewer tools.

Secure Remote User Management

Manage user access to critical resources and secure previously unmanaged, non-domain-bound resources. Improve your security posture by enabling users to self-serve password changes at the device level, reducing the threat of browser-based phishing attacks.
