Go from traditional to modern with Microsoft Endpoint Manager

How endpoint modernisation helps IT work smarter, not harder

Traditional on-premises device management has always been cumbersome and a drain on IT’s time. Today, a combination of device proliferation, the shift to the cloud, hybrid working arrangements and evolving security risks is making the entire process infinitely more complex, costly and labour-intensive.

For organisations seeking smoother, more efficient ways to manage devices without compromising security, Microsoft Endpoint Manager provides a flexible, unified alternative. Helping you work smarter, not harder.

By bringing together several familiar technologies – Intune, Configuration Manager, Co-management, Desktop Analytics, Windows Autopilot, Azure Active Directory (AD) and Endpoint Manager admin centre – Endpoint Manager allows IT to secure, deploy and manage all users, apps, and endpoint devices – no matter where users are located – through a single cloud-based platform.

Are you paying twice for endpoint management?

If you are using Microsoft 365 E3 or E5, you are already paying for Endpoint Manager as it comes bundled in your Microsoft 365 licenses. So, if you are using a third-party solution to deploy and manage your remote user devices, then switching to Endpoint Manager will save on software licences.

Microsoft Endpoint Manager key benefits

1. Zero touch deployment

Forget the days of long device setup for hundreds of users. With Endpoint Manager, vendors ship direct to the end user. The user unboxes, signs in and the device self-configures, with any future updates automated.

2. Automated updates

Move on-premises device management to the cloud to enhance efficiency by automating routine IT processes such as provisioning, configuration management, and software updates.

3. Hybrid management options

Enable co-management to embrace the power and flexibility of modern endpoint tools, whilst retaining traditional corporate management for the users, devices and tasks that aren’t yet viable.

4. Strengthen endpoint security

Better protect devices against threats using Microsoft Zero Trust technology to help secure access, protect data, and respond to, manage and mitigate risk.
