Jumpcloud introduces new device management functionality for Android
Access management company Jumpcloud has upgraded its Open Directory platform to include Android device management capabilities. Additionally, the company has also launched a new admin mobile app that will enable MSPs and IT admins to have full visibility and control of user devices from anywhere.
In full, the revamped Jumpcloud SSO and Active Directory will include these new functionalities.
Android and iOS device management for corporate-owned devices and bring-your-own devices
A mobile admin app for MSPs and IT admins to manage users from anywhere, at any time, and on any device.
Enhanced employee security with multi-factor authentication (MFA) through JumpCloud Protect and JumpCloud Password Manager for iOS and Android.
Consequently, businesses can save time and money spent managing employee devices using multiple-point solutions.
“Providing Android support has been a top request from our customers, and the addition of Android management reflects JumpCloud’s arrival as a full stack unified endpoint management (UEM) vendor,” said Greg Armanini, vice president of product management, JumpCloud.
This addition to our platform will make it easier for IT teams to manage their entire device fleet, regardless of the device type or operating system, while in compliance with company security policies and respecting end-user privacy.”
The new admin app uses a single pane to manage all devices and allows admins to perform remote password management tasks such as adding, deleting, and resetting passwords. MSPs can also resend activation emails, suspend accounts, or change MFA and Security Key settings for devices.
Jumpcloud is using the same encryption and security protocols it uses on its Open Directory platform to protect sensitive data on the app.
The Android device management functionality will be available starting in May, but the admin app is available for download on Google Play and the Apple Store.
