JumpCloud manages users and their computers– whether Mac, Linux, or Windows – and provides access to cloud and on-prem resources such as Office 365, G Suite, AWS cloud servers, Salesforce, and Jira. You can use the same login to connect users to networks and share files via RADIUS and Samba, securing your organization’s WiFi and file server access. Leveraging cloud-based directory services, IT organizations can choose the best IT resources for their business, enabling users to be as productive as possible. Shivaami is an authorized partner of JumpCloud providing all the SaaS solutions to its customers being a one stop cloud solution provider.
Registering with JumpCloud creates your ‘secure tenant’ in our cloud-based infrastructure. In the modern cloud era, we believe that the concept of the domain has changed. The assumption that a user will be logging into a network on-prem, with all of a user’s IT resources hosted there, is no longer reality. As a result, JumpCloud focuses on securely connecting users to the IT resources they need whether the resources are located on-prem, in the cloud, or remote. It also doesn’t matter where the user is. JumpCloud in a sense creates a ‘virtual domain’ where the user is connected to whatever they have rights to, but those connections span locations, providers, protocols, and platforms. Your JumpCloud tenant manages the core identities and other data related to your organization. IT resources are then bound to and authenticated against your tenant through a wide variety of protocols, including agent-based Windows/Mac/Linux system authentication, LDAP, RADIUS, SAML for application and network resources and REST APIs to do custom integrations to other resources.
The time it takes to set up JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service depends on your infrastructure, but we strive to make it a quick and easy process. You can learn more about our setup process in our Knowledge Base section that focuses on getting started with JumpCloud. If you want to see an example of DaaS in the setup process, check out this webinar where one of our customers demonstrates how it’s possible to set up and secure the modern office in just 30 minutes.

JumpCloud (DaaS) and SSO solutions are often compared, but the services that they provide are actually in two separate categories. Web application single sign-on solutions are leveraged on top of a directory service solution like JumpCloud’s, since the core directory service is authoritative of the identity. A user’s credentials are federated to the SSO provider, which then connects the user to a number of web applications. SSO providers are most commonly used to connect to web applications, while directory services are used to connect users to all of their IT resources, including systems, applications, and networks.
The fundamental difference between JumpCloud’s cloud identity management platform and Microsoft’s directory services solutions is JumpCloud’s focus on heterogeneous environments. If your organization is 100% Microsoft, then perhaps a version of Active Directory may be right for you. If, however, you are looking for a cloud-based directory service to serve your diverse on-prem endpoints (including laptops, desktops, and servers), cloud infrastructure (such as services located at AWS or Google Cloud), web and on-prem applications, data and file storage, and wired and WiFi networks, then JumpCloud’s cloud directory service platform may be an ideal choice for you. The main difference is that JumpCloud is designed for the cloud-forward organizations we see today. JumpCloud supports cloud-based or on-prem infrastructure, is vendor agnostic to support the diverse platform environments of today, and supports central system control in order to manage Windows, Macs, or Linux machines in one location.
