Cloud-based Radius recommendation?

Just curious which Radius service can you recommend? We're on the process of retiring our Windows NPS and looking for a cloud-based replacement. There are so many choices out there but hopefully I can limit them based from the feedback of Meraki users.

I use JumpCloud.  It as basically AD in the Cloud, plus SSO, RADIUS, LDAP and Zero Trust and more.

 

PM me if you want more information on JumpCloud.

Dave-

 

Any ideas on how the pricing looks like for JumpCloud?

@Marc_Abaya 

 

That depends on your use case.  For Cloud Directory and RADIUS it would retail for $5 per month.  It goes up from there depending on features.  You can see all the pricing here: https://jumpcloud.com/pricing

 

I am a JumpCloud Partner so I can walk you through a demo and explain how it all works.  I can also help with purchasing, configuring and debugging,  If you like.

 

If you have a lot of users and are worried about price, I can work with you on that too.

Thanks for the reply. I'm reading JumpCloud but it doesn't look like it supports PKI/Certificate-based auth, which is what we are looking for? The pricing on the website looks reasonable though.

@Marc_Abaya 

 

You are welcome.  The RADIUS setting support 2FA if that would suffice for your needs.  Also, JumpCloud Protect Push notifications use Public / Private keys for authentication.

@Marc_Abaya  I highly recommend Jumpcloud  if you don't require an on premise directory server. 

 

Pricing varies, they offer education pricing as well. It's a bit like Meraki, its not the cheapest solution but what it saves you in time pays for itself IMO.

@Marc_Abaya ,

 

JumpCloud also has Active Directory integration, so users are synced between Cloud applications and local accounts.  Add in the SSO support and Zero Trust, it is a powerful system.  Pricing can be by ala carte or by package, with discounts for education and non-profits.

With NPS, our users are spoiled with Machine/PKI authentication that they don't need to enter username and pwd anymore to join the WIFI. Can JumpCloud support that? 

@Marc_Abaya ,

 

No, however credentials are cached on the device, so username / password is usually done infrequently.  When a user is suspended or deleted, the user cannot sign into their machine or the WiFi.

 

- Dave

@Marc_Abaya  as Dave mentioned above credentials are cached on the device, our users authenticate once and it just works.

@Marc_Abaya : Guys already provide you the jump Cloud Prices per user per month scenario. I think you would contact them in order to get discount for more users.
