Announcing Windows LAPS Management Through Microsoft Intune
Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based platform for enterprise mobility management (EMM) and mobile application management (MAM). It helps organizations to protect corporate data on devices that are used by employees and external partners, while also enabling them to be productive. Microsoft recently announced the integration of Windows Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) into Intune, and this post provides an overview of the integration and the benefits it provides.
What is Windows LAPS?
Windows LAPS is a free Microsoft solution that helps organizations manage local administrator passwords on their Windows devices. It enables organizations to set a unique and secure password for each device, and also to restrict access to the password by using the Windows Group Policy. This helps to protect devices from unauthorized access and to reduce the risk of security breaches.
What are the Benefits of Windows LAPS?
The integration of Windows LAPS with Microsoft Intune provides several benefits for organizations. First, it simplifies the management of local administrator passwords on Windows devices. Instead of having to manually configure and manage the passwords for each device, organizations can now manage them centrally from within Intune. This reduces the cost and effort associated with managing local administrator passwords.
Second, the integration of Windows LAPS with Intune provides organizations with improved security. By using Windows LAPS, organizations can ensure that each device has a unique and secure local administrator password. This reduces the risk of unauthorized access to the device, and helps to protect corporate data.
How to Set Up Windows LAPS with Microsoft Intune
Setting up Windows LAPS with Microsoft Intune is simple and straightforward. First, organizations will need to install the Windows LAPS client on their Windows devices. This can be done via Intune or via a manual installation process. Once the client is installed, organizations can then configure their Windows LAPS settings within Intune. This includes setting a unique password for each device, and configuring the length and complexity of the passwords.
The integration of Windows LAPS with Microsoft Intune provides organizations with a simple and secure way to manage local administrator passwords on their Windows devices. This helps to reduce the cost and effort associated with managing local administrator passwords, and provides improved security for corporate data. Organizations should consider setting up Windows LAPS with Intune to take advantage of these benefits.
