Mac User and Device Management for the Cloud-Forward Enterprise

Speakers: Greg Keller

Level: Intermediate, Lecture

Excerpt: The modern office looks decidedly different than it did a decade ago. Since 2000, Microsoft has been synonymous with managing the enterprise – from the workstation an employee used, access to applications and networks, to the central identity their Active Directory manages. But today’s office structure has evolved past workstations under desks, large monitors and ethernet. Mobility, a wide range of cloud-based apps and services and new, non-Microsoft, operating systems like Mac OS, are changing the way employees are working, and evolving the way IT professionals need to think about managing.

Description: JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service solution solves the growing problems presented by the evolution of the modern, cloud-forward,office.

With Directory-as-a-Service, IT admins can tackle the complete range of employee resource access needs regardless of the platform, or location. JumpCloud’s cloud-based directory provides centralized identity management providing access to an employee’s systems, networks and applications. Delivered from the cloud, with no on-premise resources needed, JumpCloud focuses on connectivity to resources through deep and wide protocol support including LDAP-as-a-Service, RADIUS-as-a-Service, SAML 2.0 and a progressive RESTful API. IT admins have complete control over their macOS, Windows and Linux systems with the ability to remotely provision, deprovision, and modify user access, enable MFA and execute policy through the product’s command execution facilities.
