The Six Pillars of Modern Endpoint Management
Modern Endpoint Management is an IT operating model for remote or mobile workers who operate outside the traditional domain, using Microsoft 365 on desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones, including BYOD. We define the six pillars of Modern Endpoint Management as follows:
Zero Trust Network
Zero trust assumes all devices are untrusted and cannot access company resources until proven otherwise. This is typically achieved through device attestation, conditional access policies, and multi-factor authentication.
Windows update management is based on deployment rings. Set the maximum deferral period for semi-annual feature updates and monthly quality updates with security updates. Patch management is no longer required for operating systems.
Eliminate the need to manage on-premise storage infrastructure. Gain live document collaboration, automatic backups, and drop your VPN.
Use cloud identity, single-sign-on and biometrics to remove the liability of password management for knowledge workers. Employees will love not having to remember passwords and phishing attacks will be virtually eliminated.
Zero Touch Provisioning
Stop imaging laptops. Ship devices directly to employees and get remote setup and configuration for all your devices.
Purposefully designed for remote employees, with a mobile app, self-service options, 24×7 coverage and rapid response SLAs;
Modern Endpoint Management is designed to reduce cost, improve security and delight employees. All this is enabled by Microsoft 365 and world-class support from Mobile Mentor.
