Jamf announces support for new Google Cloud secure LDAP service

Posted in: Jamf Pro, Enterprise

Attention all Cloud Identity or G Suite users. As a newly-inducted Google Premier Partner, Jamf once again is demonstrating our commitment to extending the value of the solutions you’re already using.

We know you need modern identity solutions but rely on compatibility with the tools and applications that empower your organization. Jamf bridges that gap by integrating with identity providers, which now includes Google Cloud.

Announced at Google Next London with Jamf as an official launch partner, Google Cloud's new solution for user syncing and authentication, secure LDAP, lets you sync Jamf Pro users directly with Google Cloud’s identity services. Whether using G Suite or Cloud Identity, you can sync every user, authenticate them on Jamf Pro managed devices, and use LDAP lookups to scope device configurations and applications to users.

Help adopt modern identity frameworks for your users while maintaining the functionality of legacy applications.

  • Benefits for IT: IT pros will no longer need to manage users in multiple places.
  • Benefits for end users: End users will be able to access Jamf Self Service and their entire personalized app catalog on any Apple device by logging in with their G Suite or Cloud Identity username and password.
  • Benefits for organizations: With streamlined syncing/authentication, organizations can free up resources and time they'd otherwise use for directory management.

Jamf will share documentation on how to set up secure LDAP to work with Jamf Pro and is developing product enhancements to make the G Suite experience even better for Apple devices. Want to know more? Check out Google Cloud’s detailed write-up on secure LDAP.
