Microsoft Endpoint Manager at Microsoft Ignite: March 2021 Edition
A Comprehensive Overview of What’s New
At Microsoft Ignite 2021, Microsoft’s annual developer conference, Microsoft announced a number of exciting updates to Microsoft Endpoint Manager (MEM). MEM is Microsoft’s cloud-based platform for managing devices and applications across the enterprise. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at some of the new features and improvements that have been announced for MEM.
Simplified Device Management
Microsoft has made it easier to manage devices with their new MEM feature, Simplified Device Management. This feature allows IT admins to easily manage a large number of devices in a single console, with no need for manual configuration. It also offers simplified setup and deployment options, so IT admins can quickly and easily deploy devices across the enterprise.
Unified Endpoint Management (UEM)
Microsoft is introducing a new feature called Unified Endpoint Management (UEM). UEM is a unified approach to managing all of the devices in an organization. UEM will allow IT admins to centrally manage all of their devices from a single console, making it easier to deploy and manage devices across the enterprise.
Microsoft is introducing a number of new security features for MEM. These features will help to protect devices from threats such as phishing, ransomware, and other malicious attacks. Additionally, MEM will now be able to detect and respond to threats within the enterprise, allowing IT admins to quickly and easily respond to threats as soon as they are detected.
Microsoft is introducing intelligent automation capabilities to MEM. This will allow IT admins to automate common tasks, such as patching, software deployment, and device management. This will help to reduce the amount of manual work that IT admins need to do in order to manage their devices.
Microsoft Power Automate
Microsoft is introducing Power Automate to MEM, which will allow IT admins to automate common tasks. Power Automate will allow IT admins to create automated workflows that can be used to manage devices and applications. This will help to streamline common tasks and reduce the amount of manual work that IT admins need to do in order to manage their environment.
Integration with the Microsoft Graph
Microsoft is introducing integration with the Microsoft Graph, which will allow IT admins to get real-time insights into their environment. This will allow IT admins to easily identify potential security threats and take steps to mitigate them. Additionally, it will allow IT admins to quickly respond to changes in their environment, such as the addition of new users or devices.
Microsoft is introducing PowerShell scripting to MEM. This will allow IT admins to easily create scripts to automate common tasks, such as patching and software deployment. Additionally, it will allow IT admins to quickly and easily customize their environment to suit their needs.
Microsoft Endpoint Manager is an incredibly powerful platform for managing devices and applications across the enterprise. With the new features and improvements announced at Microsoft Ignite 2021, MEM has become even more powerful and easier to use. With the addition of new features such as simplified device management, unified endpoint management, improved security, intelligent automation, and integration with the Microsoft Graph, MEM is now an invaluable tool for IT admins.
In addition, IT admins will now be able to use PowerShell scripting to automate common tasks and customize their environment. This will allow IT admins to quickly and easily respond to changes in their environment and ensure that their devices and applications are always secure and up-to-date.
