Cloud Connecting with Co-Management

Getting cloud connected with Co-management adds new functionality to your existing Configuration Manager deployment, without changing how you already work. When you enable co-management, you immediately begin benefitting from the cloud. You can apply that value to your existing management infrastructure and processes. In this co-management Blastoff series, you'll find how you can quickly drive new management value. Co-management is built to create features and tools you can use right now.


Moving From Hybrid MDM To Microsoft Intune

If you missed the memo over the summer, as of 14 August 2018, hybrid mobile device management (Intune integrated with Configuration Manager) is a deprecated feature with support ending on 1 September 2019. For more information on what this means, check out this documentation. The short version: Intune standalone is now Microsoft's recommended deployment topology and it is required for Co-Management.

Upgrading to Windows 10 to Enable Co-Management

As you work towards onboarding your organization to Co-Management, a significant hurdle for some teams is getting Current. For Co-Management, Windows 10 1709 (released in January 2018) is required. Your organization may be in the process of planning or implementing this update, and, once you are updated and Auto Enrollment is configured, your clients will be automatically enrolled to Co-Management. The great news is that upgrading Windows 10 is enabled by default! In most cases, upgrade...

Embedding Co-management With Azure Active Directory

There's no simpler way to say it than this: In the cloud, Identity is the new control plane. This fundamental principal of security and management means that securely connecting users to applications and resources (no matter where they exist or how they are used) is what will set apart world-class organizations. This huge shift in how we approach IT is embodied by Azure AD. Azure AD allows you to seamlessly link your users, devices, and applications – across both cloud and on-premises...


Client Health Monitoring with Co-Management

The health of our network is directly connected to the health of the devices moving in and out of it. Intune has the unique ability to talk to unhealthy clients and act as a watch dog for your organization, even when a client is not on your corporate network. When you use Co-Management to combine this power with ConfigMgr's ability to report back 98% of known healthy clients, you can detect, assess, and provide great visibility across all clients, in real time. Intune also adds the support...


Using Co-Management to Execute Remote Actions

IT must be able to ensure that every device they manage is reachable – no matter where it is – whenever it connects.

With the device actions supported by Intune, these critical functions can be solved (as the name implies) remotely. Why you need it: Remote device actions give IT unparalleled management controls on the device without interfering...


The Security Benefits of Conditional Access

Simply put, Conditional Access is EMS flexing its might. Surprisingly often, regular uses of ConfigMgr overlook how much they can use Conditional Access (CA) and take advantage of the simple, cloud-attached benefits. CA is a perpetual-motion machine which ensures that corporate resources are only accessed by trusted users on trusted devices using trusted apps. It has been built from scratch in the cloud and, whether you're managing devices with Intune or extending your ConfigMgr...
