Conditional Access, Device Refresh intervals, VPNs Suck, Exchange 2016 and devices!
This Friday Five is my round up of the things in the world of Windows and Enterprise Mobility that have made me think, smile and chuckle this week. Hopefully you find them useful and if you do, don’t forget to follow me on Twitter (@simonster) or subscribe to the blog on the right, so you don’t have to check back every week.
Peter van der Woude, Microsoft Enterprise Client Management MVP, continues his informative, multi-part series on conditional access for PCs. In this, the third installment, he enables conditional access for PCs to Exchange online.
Policy refresh times are frankly the bane of my life when it comes to doing demos. I’m constantly outfoxed by them. This excellent article, by shoud-be-MVP Nickolaj, is all you ever need to know about policy refresh cycles!
…and start using Azure AD App Proxy instead for publishing your on-prem applications to your users, through the cloud. If you aren’t familiar with our solution it leapfrogs what you can do with a VPN and you should really be asking yourself – Why the heck am I making my users use a VPN? Azure AD App Proxy can provide single sign-on, and it can do it with on-prem apps that even have different on-prem identities. In this blog post Meir explains you how.
Well it’s certainly the most familiar workload and millions of email admins are also mobility admins. Exchange Server 2016 was released this week – woot! – and all the “forged in the cloud” goodness that Office 365 customers have been experiencing for a while has come to the on-prem world. What does that mean? Simple: great experiences for Android and iOS devices, easier sharing with OneDrive documents being linked to emails rather than attached, MODERN AUTHENTICATION which supports multi-factor and sweet DLP scenarios. Check out what’s new in Exchange 2016 with this TechNet article.
October 6th has a great event happening in NY, NY and hopefully there will some cool new stuff to see. (hint: I know what’s coming and it’s cool, can’t say any more J). You can read about it on CNET right here.

The top 5 things in enterprise mobility this week: Privileged ID Management with Azure AD, Windows 10 as a Service, Windows 10 direct from the engineering leaders and Brad Anderson’s lunch break with Todd Bishop of Geek Wire
This week’s Friday Five is a little bit late because I’ve been travelling through time to arrive here in Auckland, New Zealand for Ignite NZ next week. That said there was still lots of awesome this week:
There’s an amazing amount of new stuff available in this preview of privileged Id management, even if you aren’t sure where to get started there’s a wizard that will help you out. You get deep insight into what privileged accounts are being used when and why, you’ll also have the capability to enable Azure MFA for specific use of privileged accounts (which is pretty darn cool), security alerts and reviews. There’s so many things available that you should probably schedule some time to sit down with your security people and walk through it all together!
Brad Anderson and I spent some time interviewing Jim Alkove, Windows Enterprise and Security engineering leader to learn more about Windows 10 and what’s in it for IT. It was a really informative chat with lots of useful info and totally worth 20 minutes of your time to get educated.
I’ve mentioned this a couple of times in past Friday Five’s but the Jump Start is now available on demand, it’ll take a little longer than watching the video with Jim above but we do go much deeper on Windows 10 as a service and what it’s going to mean to IT. (Hint: you need to think about deployment rings)
This one makes me feel very old, I remember standing in line for my copy of the Windows 95 upgrade CD in Leicester high street in the UK, man I was excited. So was everyone else!
Every week I try to find something that made me giggle and this certainly did the job…especially when Brad steps on the “gas”! Take some time out of your day and enjoy.
