Newsletter 6/19: FileVault Policy, Early Access Releases, and More!

Welcome to JumpCloud’s June Newsletter. In this issue, we cover our new FileVault FDE Policy, new Early Access releases, enhancements to our password reset process, updates to the Admin Portal, our Premium Support offering, and a recent investment from General Atlantic.

Product Update: FileVault Full Disk Encryption Policy for Mac

We are excited to announce that JumpCloud admins can now enforce and manage FileVault full disk encryption (FDE) with our FileVault Policy on Macs®! Using this new Policy, admins can apply FileVault to entire fleets of Mac systems or control FDE based on group membership.

This policy joins our existing Bitlocker Policy to enable admins to encrypt both their Windows® and Mac hard drives from a single admin console. In addition to controlling FileVault enablement, you can also easily and securely store your recovery keys in JumpCloud.

Never let an at-rest Mac system go unencrypted again with the new FileVault FDE Policy. You can learn more about the FileVault Policy, and our other available Policies, at our Knowledge Base. Check out the link below for a video tutorial on using the FileVault Policy.

RADIUS MFA is Almost Here

The RADIUS MFA feature, which was announced last month in Early Access, will soon be available for all JumpCloud customers! JumpCloud admins can require multi-factor authentication to further protect their VPN access using RADIUS-as-a-Service. When authenticating via RADIUS, end users will append their MFA token to the end of their passwords, as supported by the RADIUS protocol.

JumpCloud’s MFA protection for RADIUS uses time-based, one-time password (TOTP) tokens generated by Google Authenticator or other similar TOTP generating app. Admins can also configure the challenge level of MFA for RADIUS to tailor to their organization’s security needs.

If you would like to learn more about MFA for RADIUS with JumpCloud or join Early Access before the release, please email sales@jumpcloud.com, or contact your Account Manager.

Traditional binding of Macs to Active Directory (AD) for user management, authentication and password management typically leaves a lot to be desired for IT (Read more...)
