Get Started: Devices

You can connect Mac, Windows, and Linux devices to JumpCloud by installing the JumpCloud agent, or through MDM. Check Agent Compatibility, System Requirements and Impacts before you install the agent.

The JumpCloud agent is small, secure, and keeps itself up-to-date. The agent checks in with JumpCloud securely through port 443, provides status, sets policies, reports login event data, etc.

After the agent is installed and connected to a device, you can remotely and securely manage the device, its user accounts and policies, execute commands, enable MFA, and manage SSHD configuration (Linux).
