We took an informal poll of some of our clients and contacts, the results were interesting and confirmed a few things we have been wondering about for a while. Here is what we asked people:
Windows 10 Branch Management is an ongoing process, but even with the cyclical nature of the updates, there is still a ‘figurative’ finish line that needs to be crossed each time your organization updates your branch. Complicating things even more, each branch has a limited time-frame for support. As soon as you are fully modern, the clock starts ticking again.
In Windows 10, security updates are downloaded and installed automatically. You don’t get a choice in the matter. And that’s largely a good thing. Too many people never take the time to keep up to date with security updates, and an unsecured PC connected to the Internet can become a problem for everyone.
Everyone is talking about adapting and changing, simplifying business tasks and achieving greater productivity. Phrases like ‘modern desktop’ and ‘digital transformation’ are the all the buzz, however, does anyone really know what they mean?
Cyber-Security Awareness Month is drawing to a close and we hope that our focus on security education has been helpful for you!
What is an Microsoft Secure Score?
A Secure Score is a proactive security management service for Microsoft 365 and Office 365, which can improve the security posture of your Company and decrease your chance of being hacked or affected by a data breach. It takes an overall look at the health of your Company and the steps that can be taken to reduce your risk.
- Analysis of your Company's IT environment, examining how secure it is and providing an overall assessment via a secure score.
- Provides a way of grading how well available security controls have been implemented, off-setting the risk of being breached.
- Provides a way to target an improved score and the corresponding set of actions that need to be implemented to achieve this score.
Why is there so much buzz around Modern Desktop today? What does Modern desktop mean? And why should your Company embrace it?
We define the Modern Desktop experience as one that comes with the latest productivity tools to enable users to work wherever they need to, while remaining in a secure, protected state. It is deployed and managed in a simple manner to minimize overhead and is always current. Often, it includes Microsoft 365, Windows 10 and Security.
In 1985, VH1 made its broadcasting debut. The Coca-Cola Company introduces New Coke. And for the first time ever Microsoft released Windows.
