When IT administrators work in their JumpCloud®Admin Portal, they want the web-based console to make it easier to manage, monitor, and secure the user identities and IT resources in their environment. Instead of switching between different point tools to work, JumpCloud’s all-in-one cloud directory platform lets admins do their job in a central place, from managing users and user groups, devices, Policies, and more across Mac®, Windows®, and Linux® computers and other IT resources (like web applications, VPNs, storage systems, etc.).

When you’re there, you can see all the applications that this group has access to, and you’ll decide if that’s right for Pam, the individual, or perhaps for the entire group as it stands.
Similarly, you can see the Systems (or end user devices) menu where you gave Pam an account, and one-click navigate to them. Pam has admin privileges in JumpCloud, which means she can do things like send remote Apple MDM commands to enrolled end user Mac devices managed by (Read more...)
