JumpCloud + Jamf Pro = Complete Fleet Management

An image of macOS devices sitting on a desk.

By integrating JumpCloud® and Jamf, you can securely manage your entire fleet of systems using a single authoritative directory (JumpCloud) and a mobile device management (MDM) platform (Jamf) while experiencing benefits in control and efficiency. 

What is JumpCloud?

JumpCloud is the first core directory service that’s available completely from the cloud, reimagining Active Directory for the modern era. IT organizations use JumpCloud to tightly control their user identities and access to systems (Windows®, Mac®, Linux®), applications (cloud and on-prem via SAML and LDAP), WiFi and VPN networks (via RADIUS), server infrastructure, file servers (via Samba), and much more. 

With JumpCloud, admins provide their users access to all of these resources with a single set of secure credentials, backed by multi-factor authentication (MFA), and with a focus on end user self-service. JumpCloud acts as the central hub for identity and access management (IAM) across an IT organization, providing remote domain binding from a single cloud console. JumpCloud also specializes in support for macOS systems, treating them, Linux servers, and Windows machines as first class citizens. JumpCloud enables organizations with Keychain synchronization, SecureToken support, as well as event logging and system status auditing capabilities.

What is Jamf?

Jamf offers best-in-class enterprise Apple system management and mobile device management (MDM) solution. From unboxing to system retirement, Jamf does all things macOS® and iOS® device management, enabling IT admins to proactively manage the full lifecycle of their Apple devices.

JumpCloud + Jamf

Because Jamf offers integrations to identity providers through LDAP and SAML-based single sign-on (SSO) solutions, organizations can link their Jamf environment to their cloud-based JumpCloud instance via LDAP-as-a-Service or SAML SSO. By using them in tandem, organizations achieve a couple of key benefits, namely complete fleet management (for users and systems) and zero-touch macOS system deployment.

Complete Fleet Management

Used in concert, JumpCloud and Jamf can cover most (if not all) of an organization’s identity and system management needs. Jamf, of course, covers all things Apple, providing tight control over both Mac workstations and iOS mobile devices. JumpCloud then tackles (Read more...)
