The ongoing pandemic has forced us all to rethink how we work and interact with each other and the information assets held within our organizations. The increase in remote working elevates the likelihood of security threats, potentially putting our information at risk.
Now is the time to evaluate your infrastructure and security, not only for the immediate threat but also to plan for what comes next.
Better Remote Worker Security with Microsoft Endpoint Manager
At Lydon Solutions, we have been a virtual organization right from the start. At the moment, of course, we have increased the number of staff working from home, and we have been able to do so seamlessly by using services from Microsoft 365 and Azure because we do not have an on-premise infrastructure. We use Microsoft 365 for email and collaboration (SharePoint, Teams, etc.) and use Microsoft Azure Endpoint Manager (previously called InTune) to manage all the devices our employees use.
Endpoint Manager, a cloud-based enterprise mobility management service from Microsoft, ensures that your employees' devices and applications access your company information securely.
Here are some of the ways we use Endpoint Manager at Lydon Solutions to protect our information and systems:
- Multi-factor security. We require employees to enroll all devices in Endpoint Manager and use multi-factor authentication before allowing access to company information.
- Asset management. We provision and manage all company-issued laptops with Endpoint Manager, automatically configuring all devices with our organization settings and ensuring they are compliant with our security policy requirements.
- BYOD device management. Our employees are free to use their devices of choice, and with Endpoint Manager, we can specifically target only the apps that contain (or access) company information, such as Office.
- Policies. Using public computers can also be risky. So, to ensure that our employees are not accessing company information from these devices and potentially leaving sensitive information behind, we create policies not to allow access.
As part of our Microsoft 365 managed services, we can set up your Microsoft 365 tenant and implement Endpoint Manager so that your company can manage projects effectively and your information and assets are protected.
