Traditional approaches to Windows management are costly, complex and restrictive. Provisioning devices requires time consuming masters and imaging. Management is largely driven by Group Policies (GPOs), done on-premises, and only possible for network or domain-joined PCs. Pre-Windows 10, major OS updates were less frequent, and feature and security patches were put through extensive compatibility testing. Users had little or no self-service capabilities (e.g. installing apps) – resulting in high-touch IT and higher support/help-desk costs.
Using WorkSpace One® and Windows 10, a fundamentally different approach to simplify management and security is possible. Windows 10 drastically simplifies the process of device enrollment on any network and across different use-cases without the need for imaging for individual use cases. The unified set of APIs across PCs, tablets, phones, and other Windows devices means IT can consolidate management tools and employees can access and perform self-service install from a custom company app store.
Workspace One features a new – and more efficient – approach to Windows lifecycle management. The unified endpoint management platform introduces a full set of Windows 10 capabilities enabling OS deployment, application and updates distribution, and end-to-end security. By combining the requirements of traditional management and the modern enterprise mobility management (EMM) approaches, Workspace One reduces the costs and burden on your IT, and helps you smoothly transition to the most secure and productive Windows platform yet.
This evolved OS is forcing organizations to rethink traditional management practices, and instead adopt EMM as the standard management tool for any device running Windows 10. Mobinergy's team and offers can help you achieve this important step in your company's life.
WorkSpace One UEM provides an intuitive Windows 10 onboarding experience over a public or private network across various scenarios. End users can have an out-of-box enrollment experience, with zero IT involvement, on power ON or adding their work account to an existing Microsoft Office application. On enrollment, the device can be joined to a domain; correctly configured with profiles, settings, apps, compliance policies and content; and set up for WorkSpace One management. WorkSpace One UEM enables you to create dynamic policies around how OS updates are managed and delivered across your organization. IT can flexibly deploy and/or defer OS updates and patches based on device priority, sensitivity, and desired maintenance windows. Workspace One UEM fully integrates with an existing Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) or the new Windows Update for Business service and supports peer-to-peer delivery of updates to eliminate caching infrastructure.
With WorkSpace One UEM, organizations no longer need multiple app distribution tools for each app type. IT can distribute all app types – classic or modern (e.g. MSI, MST, MSP, EXE, APPX, APPV...) via a unified company store. Integration with VMware Identity Manager® also ensures a consistent one-touch single sign-on (SSO) user experience across all Windows apps. WorkSpace One UEM fully integrates with the Microsoft Store and the new Business Store Portal to manage application delivery, licensing, and security. It also supports auto provisioning workflows and multiple software distribution methods including remote installation of apps, drivers, firmware updates, and other custom scripts. IT gets full inventory control, collection, and reporting for Windows apps, including classic desktop (legacy Win32). Also, IT administrators can create compliance policies with custom whitelists and blacklists that allow only apps from trusted publishers to be installed or run on the device.
Workspace One UEM integrates with Microsoft Passport for Work and Windows Hello so you can enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) for user verification, including biometric gestures. The compliance engine gives IT admins real-time visibility into device’s health and image integrity (Windows Health Attestation). This allows you to provision conditional access controls such that only authorized users and compliant Windows 10 devices have access to enterprise resources. With WorkSpace One UEM compliance engine, IT can also define automated escalation policies to notify users and/or perform remediation actions on devices. WorkSpace One UEM prevents data leakage (DLP) by activating Windows Enterprise Data Protection (EDP) to protect sensitive work data from accidental or deliberate leaks. Automatically tags company data from the cloud, network or company apps and enforces policies on the use of the data such as copy/paste controls, drag and drop prevention between work and personal apps and even encrypts corporate data file differently so they can only be accessed from approved work applications and devices.
If a management solution is already present in your company, Mobinergy can help you define and prepare a migration strategy towards WorkSpace One. Our experts can work with your team to make this operation simple and quiet for your users. Workspace One UEM now includes a range of software tools and scripts to simplify enrolment for Windows 10 terminal fleets.
