LOUISVILLE, Colo., June 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — JumpCloud today announced that its open directory platform won the Global InfoSec Award for Editor’s Choice in SMB Cybersecurity. Presented by Cyber Defense Magazine, the 2022 Global InfoSec Awards honored global innovators in the information security space who have unique and compelling technologies. The JumpCloud Directory Platform stood out among a pool of other InfoSec solutions submitted by candidates ranging in size from startups to public companies. The judges — CISSP, FMDHS, CEH certified security professionals — cast their votes after independent reviews of the JumpCloud website and materials.
“JumpCloud addresses the security challenges small to midsize-enterprise (SME) IT admins face: trying to deliver enterprise level security without enterprise sized teams or budgets,” said Cate Lochead, chief marketing officer, JumpCloud. “Our open directory platform gives admins a single tool to unify device and identity management, SSO, MFA, patch management, and other critical security features. The panel of security experts that made up the InfoSec judges recognize challenges facing small, resource constrained IT teams and confirmed through this award that JumpCloud is a terrific tool to help them succeed.”

“We scoured the globe looking for cybersecurity innovators that could make a huge difference and potentially help turn the tide against the exponential growth in cybercrime. JumpCloud is absolutely worthy of this coveted award and consideration for deployment in your environment,” said Yan Ross, Editor of Cyber Defense Magazine.
