  • Announcing: Taming Android and iOS with Enterprise Mobility Suite Jumpstart on MVA


    Just a few weeks ago my colleague Kevin Remde and I hit the Microsoft Virtual Academy studios to record a live “Jumpstart” event aimed at getting you up and running on Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) and on using it to tame your iOS and Android devices. IF you’re not aware there are many, many ways that EMS can help you get your iOS and Android estates under control – things like:

    • implementing kiosk modes for those task worker style devices
    • enrolling lots of devices with Apples enrollment programs
    • controlling email flow with Exchange on-prem or Office 365 to those devices

    And whole ton more stuff.

    This jumpstart will get you up and running and because we had a TON of questions on KNOX specifically which we kept outside the scope of this course we’re doing another MVA course just on KNOX management in a few weeks’ time.

  • Announcing 4 New Deep Enterprise Mobility Labs on TechNet

    One of the hardest things with enterprise mobility is being able to try out some of the tools quickly. The problem is that in your lab it can take time to build some of the basic building blocks. Like servers, AD DS domains, populate user accounts and devices and all that stuff.

    New Technet vLabs

    So I did something about it. Below are some of the labs that I’ve built, that you can experience instructor lead at IT camps or at major events like Ignite. Obviously there is no instructor but we’ve got great notes in there for you.

    Azure Active Directory Fundamentals

    Launch the Azure Active Directory Fundamentals lab

    What you’ll learn:

    Identity management is one of the more challenging tasks for organizations. IT pros need a unified Identity management solution that provides organizations with the ability to provide secure authentication and authorization for users. This module shows how you can manage your organization’s identities by using on-premises Active Directory Domain Services, Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium, device registration, multi-factor authentication, and software as a service app integration. It focuses on devices that are not domain joined, regardless of whether the organization or the user owns the device.

    On-Prem and Cloud App and data protection with Azure RMS

    Launch the On-Prem and Cloud App and data protection with Azure RMS

    What you’ll learn:

    Protecting the information that is critical to your day-to-day business is essential to any IT management strategy. Users now are able to access this data from anywhere on a variety of devices and connectivity options. Although file system protection (such as share and NTFS file system permissions) guards data stored in network shared folders, what about files sent as attachments in emails or data in personal cloud storage? The labs in this module show you how to protect files from unauthorized access by using Microsoft Azure Rights Management, the Microsoft Rights Management connector, the Rights Management sharing app, and Microsoft Office 2013. You can use these technologies to help protect data on devices that are domain-joined or stand alone, regardless of whether they are owned by the organization or a user.

    Device Management with Microsoft Intune

    Launch the Device Management with Microsoft Intune lab

    What you’ll learn:

    Supporting varieties of apps, operating systems, and devices is challenging for most IT pros and their organizations. Although each element might have its own management system, IT pros need a unified solution. This lab demonstrates how Microsoft Intune provides a comprehensive and unified management solution that can handle a diversity of apps, operating systems, and devices in a mobile world.

    Device Management with Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager

    Launch the Device Management with Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager lab

    Supporting varieties of apps, operating systems, and devices is challenging for most IT pros and their organizations. Each element may have its own management system, but IT pros need a unified solution. This lab demonstrates how Microsoft Intune integrated with Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager provides a single pane of glass that can manage the ever-increasing diversity of apps, operating systems, and devices.

  • Endpoint Zone Episode 4

    In this months edition of The Endpoint Zone with Brad Anderson you’ll hear directly from Corporate Vice President, Brad Anderson (that means he runs engineering) about the biggest month yet in Microsoft Intune releases. You’ll hear about the Intune Secure Browser, about Exchange On-Prem and Office 365 conditional access and other groundbreaking new features. But that’s not all. I also asks Brad about the General Availability of Azure Remote App and about the new Enterprise Cloud Suite (which super-sets Windows per user licensing, Office 365 and Enterprise Mobility Suite.

    Yes, this is the Tech Industries official enterprise mobility talk show.
