On the other hand, Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based service that focuses on mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM). It allows organizations to manage and secure mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, as well as their applications and data. With Intune, enforcing policies, controlling access to company resources, distributing applications, and protecting data on mobile devices becomes more effortless.
Instead of creating and maintaining your own servers at high cost to your business, consider Amazon Simple Storage Solutions (S3). Amazon S3 works at an object level. It is scalable to store any amount of data, and it is accessible anytime on demand. With strong access controls, cost-effective storage options, and industry-leading data availability and storage, Amazon S3 can work for any size of business.
There are several storage classes within Amazon S3, all offering excellent durability and security for your data. For general purpose storage, S3 Standard and S3 Intelligent-Tiering offer low cost, low latency storage. If you access your data less frequently but still require rapid access, S3 Standard-IA or S3 One Zone-IA offers high availability storage at low costs. AWS also offers storage for archived data based on the required availability: S3 Glacier Instant Retrieval, S3 Glacier Flexible Retrieval, or S3 Glacier Deep Archive.
AWS offers serverless storage through the Amazon Elastic File System (EFS), allowing you to build and configure your shared file systems quickly and easily. Amazon EFS is optimized to handle the majority of applications and features high availability and extreme durability for your data. With scalable, agile storage that grows and shrinks with your needs, Amazon EFS reduces costs by ensuring that you only pay for what you use. In addition, Amazon EFS will automatically move your rarely-accessed files to lower cost storage. Amazon EFS is your solution if you need to quickly and easily share data with no management required.
Amazon FSx is a fully Windows-compatible storage system with high availability, default backups for all files, and automatically updated hardware patches and provisioning. If you rely on a Windows-based file server that is reaching capacity or is nearing end-of-life, Amazon FSx may be the solution for you. Amazon FSx offers low latency, guaranteed performance, and industry-leading security for your business files.
In addition to working seamlessly with Windows File Server, Amazon FSx offers storage for NetApp ONTAP, Open ZFS, and Lustre. Simply choose the system you already use and your data can be transferred seamlessly to your new cloud-based file system. With Amazon FSx, you only pay for what you use, eliminating the need to invest thousands in on-site storage in favor of pay-per-use storage with Amazon FSx.
Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) low latency, high performance block storage for use with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances. Amazon EBS supports SSD-based or HDD-based volume types and includes encryption for your data, both in-flight and at rest. As always, Amazon EBS is a cost-effective, scalable, and easy to use. Amazon EBS supports service levels that specialize in everything from highly available, low latency block storage to very low cost, durable storage for archived data blocks.
Amazon File Cache offers a unified view of your files, regardless of storage location. You can link physical servers, Amazon FSx, Amazon S3, or other cloud datasets within the Amazon File Cache. This low-latency cache makes it easier to process your file data by presenting a cohesive look at everything you have linked to the Amazon File Cache.
Investing in Microsoft Endpoint Manager exposes users to a world of seamless integration, combining the power of Microsoft Intune and System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) into a unified platform for managing all your endpoints. This level of integration eliminates the need to maintain separate management systems for different device types, from Windows PCs to Macs, iOS, and Android devices.
Integrating Microsoft Intune and SCCM into a single platform eliminates the complexities and inefficiencies of managing diverse endpoints separately. The platform also offers unified and streamlined management, saving time, boosting security, and enhancing efficiency for IT administrators and end-users.
Microsoft Endpoint Manager is developed to cater to several operating systems and device types, including Windows 10 and 11, macOS, iOS, and Android. By offering support for multiple platforms, Microsoft Endpoint Manager enables organizations to leverage the same management framework across all platforms. This multi-platform support simplifies IT administration by eliminating the need for separate management tools for each OS.
Microsoft Endpoint Manager’s support for various platforms empowers organizations to manage and secure their endpoint ecosystem, regardless of its diversity. This feature simplifies administration, ensures consistent policies, and enables organizations to remain agile in facing novel and evolving technology trends.
By combining the capabilities of Microsoft Intune and System Center Configuration Management (SCCM) into a unified platform, users can apply consistent policies and configurations to all endpoints. With Microsoft Endpoint Manager, users can define policies, set security configurations, and enforce compliance standards across different devices from a centralized console, such as conditional access, MDM, and data protection settings.
With the conditional access feature, organizations can define access controls based on specific conditions, such as device compliance, user identity, and network location. Microsoft Endpoint Manager also provides mobile device management (MDM), enabling users to manage and control mobile devices across different platforms. Furthermore, the data protection setting provides features for encrypting data, managing access rights, and enforcing data loss prevention policies.
Microsoft Endpoint Manager enables seamless application management. It allows users to distribute applications, updates, and patches to all endpoints through a single platform. This process helps to streamline the software deployment process and ensure that users have access to the necessary applications and updates, regardless of their device type.
Deploying applications through the endpoint portal allows administrators to streamline software installation and management across various devices. Additionally, users can configure preferences for compatible printers, VPNs, and device encryption directly from the endpoint portal. Utilizing these deployment capabilities simplifies the management process, ensures device consistency, and enhances the overall user experience.
One of the significant benefits of Microsoft Endpoint Manager is its easy integration with various Microsoft technologies, including Microsoft 365, Azure ADM, and Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection. This integration enhances the overall capabilities and effectiveness of endpoint management and security.
Integration with Microsoft 365 enables the Endpoint Manager to leverage other collaboration and productivity tools provided by Microsoft. On the other hand, the Azure AD integration empowers Microsoft Endpoint Manager with comprehensive identity and access management capabilities. Furthermore, users can enjoy a robust endpoint protection solution, from advanced threat detection, to real-time monitoring and response mechanism, through the integration with Microsoft Defender ATP.
By combining the functionalities of Intune and Configuration Manager, Microsoft Endpoint Manager provides organizations with the tools to manage and secure their various endpoint devices and applications from a single console. Whether using mobile devices, PCs, or servers, this unified approach simplifies management tasks, enhances security, and improves overall efficiency in an increasingly mobile and cloud-centric IT environment.
