Let Your Devices Work for You
Use of personal devices for work, employees working outside the office, advancements in cloud technology, and BYOD, impacts how your organization manages devices. Forsyte’s device management approach allows you to simplify deployment and management, improve security, provide better user experience, and reduce costs. The goal… keep people productive anywhere, on any device. To accomplish this goal, Forsyte leverages solutions like Windows 10 Autopilot, System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), and Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) with Intune.
Every organization’s journey to modern device management is different. Forsyte will work with you to design a device deployment, security management, and maintenance strategy that fits your unique needs and situation. While there are many benefits of utilizing a modern device management solution like EMS with Intune, many organizations are still using on-premise solutions like SCCM to manage their devices. We recommend taking a hybrid approach. This bridge strategy is designed to streamline the journey to modern management in a controlled and iterative way. This allows you to selectively modernize some functions while maintaining other functions “as is” with the end goal to fully transition to modern management over time and at your own pace.
Once you have started the journey to modern device management, it is essential to safeguard your apps and data both before and after access with a rich set of protection policies. Azure Active Directory centralizes identity and access management to enable deep security across your devices, data, apps, and infrastructure. Azure AD combines single sign-on with advanced protection, including conditional access, multi-factor authentication, and self-service password reset.
Once your apps are secured, the next step is to secure your data. Forsyte will help you deploy a strategy to control and help secure email, documents, and sensitive data that you share inside and outside your company. From document classification to embedded permissions, protect your data with solutions like Azure Information Protection—no matter where it’s stored or who it’s shared with. From there, track and control how it is used—detect risky behavior, prevent data leakage, and implement strategies to take corrective measures.
Today there are a wealth of tools to help you maintain your devices. Forsyte will help you take advantage of solutions like Windows AutoPilot, which is designed to reset, repurpose and recover Windows 10 devices and includes tools to join devices to Azure AD and enroll them in Intune. Users’ email, apps, files, and preferences as well your organization’s security settings can be automatically applied to a device without creating custom OS images. In addition, Forsyte will help you develop and apply best practices for leveraging Windows as a Service. As Microsoft seeks to simplify the on-going maintenance of Windows, expert guidance from a partner like Forsyte will ensure that you are aware and prepared to leverage the best tools available.
