Enabling Remote Work

Directory-as-a-Service® underpins secure remote access to virtually any IT resource, providing centralized, cross-platform IAM from the cloud.

Access Control & Device Management for Remote Work

With cloud technology, a shift to remote work doesn’t have to mean chaos, decentralized IT administration, or a compromise on security. Using the Directory-as-a-Service model, on-prem servers and infrastructure are out of the picture, freeing you to manage and secure users’ access to their computers, apps, networks, and other IT resources remotely. Think of it as the original concept of the office domain, expanded to meet users and their devices wherever in the world they find themselves.

How to Secure Remote Workers With JumpCloud

Secure remote work starts with centrally managed users, whose Mac®, Windows®, or Linux® systems serve as the gateway to access the full spectrum of modern IT resources. JumpCloud integrates a single user identity with each of those resources over a standard internet connection, with security built into every transaction. As an admin, you control the following remote work essentials from a single web console:

User onboarding, group-based access management, and offboarding

Cross-OS system management with GPO-like policy control & anti-phishing measures

Full disk encryption for Mac® and Windows® machines

SSO for hundreds of SaaS apps with SAML 2.0 authentication

Deep integrations with G Suite™, Office 365™, AWS®, and Active Directory®

Password length, complexity, and rotation requirements

Multi-factor authentication (MFA/2FA) for all IT resources

Network access via RADIUS

User-Self Service System Agent Installs

“JumpCloud is one of the technologies we put in place that has made it possible for us to close our office and have everybody working from home. I’m very grateful.”

—Iain Argent , Software Development Manager at Doublestruck

Benefits

Fully Remote Architecture

JumpCloud’s platform stands alone in the cloud, providing unified IAM across a wide array of IT resources without the need for on-prem hardware or a patchwork of management solutions. Users access their resources directly rather than tunneling back to an office domain.

Security & High Availability

User identities are protected wherever they go, with password policies and MFA/2FA toggled on at the organizational level and all data in transit encrypted. Your security perimeter surrounds each user instead of surrounding a physical office, and we maintain the infrastructure to keep everything updated, redundant, and highly available. Users change their JumpCloud passwords at the device level, limiting the effectiveness of browser-based phishing attacks.

Admin & User Convenience

Admins use a single web-based console to manage group-based access, provision and deprovision users, enforce cross-OS system policies, and step up security. Users get a single secure identity to access their resources, making it easier to comply with company policies from any location.
