Installation option for large user groups:
The browser extension is an important tool to have, but isn’t the only way to use JumpSeat. If you are releasing JumpSeat to a large group of users, it may be more efficient to use another method such as Active Directory, SCCM, JAMF or embedding directly in your application. An IT security advisor at your organization can help advise which method will work best.
