Achieving an effective bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program has been aspirational for many IT organizations. There are explicit security and privacy concerns, which have led many admins to sour on the concept, despite its benefits. Admins have even reluctantly accepted the risk of personal PCs being left unmanaged, which leaves gaps in management and visibility.

Microsoft’s Active Directory (AD) has been a mainstay of information systems for over 20 years, but it was intended for a different era of computing and business requirements. Its persistence affects IT’s agility, impacts security posture, and limits IT’s capacity to provide the best-of-breed tools that employees expect.

In the dynamic landscape of today’s digital age, companies face an array of challenges — from heightened security concerns and the proliferation of devices, to the complexities of managing distributed workforces spanning multiple time zones and native languages. Navigating these issues becomes even more daunting when the tools available to IT admins and managed service providers (MSPs) are spread across an array of point solutions.

Granting privileged access to an end user’s device is a common practice in organizations. Admins do it to give end users the ability to manage administrative tasks such as downloading applications and accessing resources on their devices. It can be done manually, which is cumbersome and introduces risks. Or it can be managed to improve user productivity without requiring additional IT help or intervention, so that IT can focus on higher priority tasks.

I recently saw a post on LinkedIn from a managed service provider (MSP) who had turned down an opportunity because the prospect used Google Workspace. While I understood their reasoning for doing this, it did get me thinking: Why are MSPs so hesitant to work with Google? I created a casual poll on LinkedIn and the results revealed a significant trend: a majority of MSPs seem to be bypassing Google Workspace as a viable service offering.

Devices are the gateways to our work, and IT professionals understand the importance of managing and securing endpoints as part of a holistic identity and access management (IAM) strategy. Yet, it’s impossible to control what you aren’t aware of. Shadow IT, the unauthorized use of devices, apps, and services that people use to perform their jobs, can bypass even the best security programs.

An open directory platform for secure, frictionless access from any device to any resource, anywhere.

JumpCloud is reimagining the on-prem directory as a cloud-based platform that secures identities, manages devices, and provides safe access to all types of IT resources — on-prem, in the cloud, across Windows, Mac, or Linux.

JumpCloud Directory Platform:

  • Open Directory Platform: JumpCloud’s open directory platform makes it possible to unify your technology stack across identity, access, and device management, in a cost-effective manner that doesn’t sacrifice security or functionality.
  • Centralize Identities: Enjoy full-scale, centralized identity management with unified user identities, organization-wide, no matter where they originate. Easily integrate other identity sources to automatically keep identities up-to-date and aligned across all connected resources. Eliminate attack vectors related to identity sprawl and reduce costs associated with using identity management point solutions.
  • Secure Devices: Manage your entire fleet, regardless of OS or location, and create a scalable device management foundation that evolves with you. From one pane of glass, manage all server infrastructure and devices, whether they’re mobile or non-mobile, corporate-owned, or part of a BYOD initiative. Use JumpCloud to achieve compliance, centrally monitor events, manage and export device data, enforce policies, patch machines, and more.
  • Frictionless Access: Simplify onboarding, offboarding, and ongoing access changes and provide users with access to the resources they need immediately, effectively, and securely. Reduce friction between departments through open integration capabilities that sync your tools, unify access privilege management, and improve employee productivity. Secure access with conditional access policies that protect your resources from evolving threats.
