As cloud computing continues to make its mark in the technology world, Microsoft Endpoint Manager is quickly becoming one of the most popular cloud management platforms available. The November update of Microsoft Endpoint Manager (2111) includes a host of new features, including improved deployment, enhanced security, and additional device management capabilities. In this article we’ll explore what’s new in the 2111 (November) edition of Microsoft Endpoint Manager.
The November update of Microsoft Endpoint Manager brings with it improved deployment capabilities. Administrators now have the ability to quickly and easily deploy applications to their devices, with the ability to customize the deployment process for each application. This includes the ability to specify which users the application should be deployed to, the installation method, and even the version of the application that should be deployed.
Microsoft Endpoint Manager has always been a secure platform, but the November update brings with it enhanced security capabilities. Administrators now have the ability to easily configure role-based access control (RBAC) to ensure that only authorized users can access the platform.

Administrators now have the ability to quickly and easily manage device inventory, ensuring that all of their devices are up to date and secure. Additionally, administrators can now manage device settings, including setting up Wi-Fi networks, setting up printers, and more.
