Check out our blog post at https://jumpcloud.com/blog/ldap-integration-cloud-directory/ for more information on LDAP Integration with a Cloud Directory through JumpCloud®.
LDAP-as-a-Service was born from the difficulty that is the implementation, maintenance, and leveraging of LDAP in modern organizations. The connection of cloud-based servers to an on-prem LDAP directory is notoriously complicated and stress-inducing. This is where JumpCloud enters to assist enterprises in implementing this alongside a cloud directory. JumpCloud’s SaaS-based solution takes away the grunt work of setup and configuration that comes with an LDAP server and instead hands you the end result in a neat package. Our solution delivers a cloud-based LDAP within its core features. Authentication and authorization via the LDAP protocol allows for ease of access and dedicated monitoring. This ultimately relieves your system admins from the ungainly chore that is associated with implementing, maintaining, and monitoring LDAP in the modern cloud-based workplace.
“I believe that the next generation of LDAP and AD is going to be Directory-as-a-Service” – Tim Howes, Co-Inventor of LDAP
Do you use apps like Atlassian JIRA or Confluence, or any app that can use LDAP directly to authenticate and provision users? JumpCloud offers LDAP-as-a-Service as a core feature of its directory. Forget about installing, configuring, and managing an LDAP server day-to-day ever again. JumpCloud DaaS does this for you all through this LDAP service. Just configure your apps to your own private LDAP instance, like you would as if the server was in your own rack.
