Endpoint Management 1-Day Virtual Conference Now Available On Demand
Petri’s Endpoint Management 1-day virtual conference is now available to view on demand. At the end of last month, Petri hosted a full free day of learning, covering topics like how to manage devices using Microsoft Intune, how to deploy new hardware with Windows Autopilot, and managing security updates with Windows Update.
The management of endpoints is complicated, and the risks associated with having unsecured devices roaming outside the firewall are quickly becoming a targeted vector for malicious users. In Petri’s 1-day virtual conference, we dove deep into how you can improve the way you manage your endpoints and learn from industry experts and MVPs about best practices, available tools to streamline your operations, and what’s coming soon with Windows 11.
Managing Hybrid Windows 10 Devices on the Internet via Intune and ConfigMgr
The first session, hosted by Dean Ellerby, covers the key steps in managing remote devices using Microsoft Intune and Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr).
In the session, Dean looks at how Intune and ConfigMgr work together, and how ConfigMgr’s capabilities can be extended to the cloud using Cloud Management Gateway. In the demo, Dean shows you how to deploy software to a Windows 10 device that is hybrid-domain joined but that isn’t enrolled with Intune and is not co-managed.
What is “Inside Microsoft Teams”?
“Inside Microsoft Teams” is a webcast series, now in Season 4 for IT pros hosted by Microsoft Product Manager, Stephen Rose. Stephen & his guests comprised of customers, partners, and real-world experts share best practices of planning, deploying, adopting, managing, and securing Teams. You can watch any episode at your convenience, find resources, blogs, reviews of accessories certified for Teams, bonus clips, and information regarding upcoming live broadcasts. Our next episode, “Polaris Inc., and Microsoft Teams- Reinventing how we work and play” will be airing on Oct. 28th from 10-11am PST.
How To Achieve Better Endpoint Management with the Proper Remote Connection Tool
The second session of the day is hosted by Maurice Côté. Maurice looks at how with the right tool, you can quickly discover endpoints and easily import them from multiple sources. And how the right tool will also provide you with a rich credential management layer to obtain credentials “just-in-time” while automatically injecting them upon launching your chosen remote access protocol.
This session will showcase Remote Desktop Manager’s versatility while also demonstrating the increased gain in productivity without compromising the highest standards in security.
How to Use Windows Autopilot
Session three sees Ru Campbell talk about how to deploy Windows 10 to new hardware using Windows Autopilot. Autopilot allows organizations to have hardware delivered directly to users without any intervention from IT.
Using Autopilot and Intune, organizations can have devices automatically joined to Azure Active Directory (AD) and set up with all the necessary software needed by each user.
Best Practices for Managing Windows Updates
In the fourth session, Michael Reinders shows you why and how to use fundamental, traditional, and proven on-premise tools to manage your endpoints. Michael goes over all things ‘Windows Update‘ including Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), Windows Update for Business (WUfB), and even how to incorporate the Windows Insider Program in your organization.
Managing Users in Microsoft 365 with PowerShell
And in the final session of the conference, Todd Klindt shows IT pros how to use PowerShell to manage users on their devices in Microsoft 365. Todd helps you understand the proper way to construct your scripts so that they get the job done right the first time.
