Wild, Wild WaaS – How COVID and the pandemic lockdown spurred me on to re-engineer our WaaS delivery and make the switch to Feature Updates – Mike Marable

COVID forced close to ¾ of our staff working from home we needed a new way to complete our build to build Windows 10 upgrades. With no CMG, no “always on” VPN,  and no Intune, plus the inability to reliably run our original IPU task sequence over our on-demand VPN, we had to come up with something new.  I had to step away from the IPU task sequence, get outside of my comfort zone, and as scary as that may be, move to Feature Updates.

Windows Hello for Business: why you should deploy it. – Steve Hosking

In this session, we will talk about the Why you should deploy Windows Hello for Business, while also explaining the high level concepts on how to implement it.

Don’t spread your admin credentials! – Mikael Nyström

Join the Deploymentbunny for a session where you will learn how to protect your admin credentials, he will show you what tools to use, how to use them and how you must change your behavior in the long run, sad but true. He will also show you how they get customers up and running, fast after being hacked, and yes, customer gets hacked every day and everywhere, and working from home is a great way to hack companies… (part of the demos will be the new version of PSD, since that is what they use to deploy new devices across the internet without any complex infrastructure)

Right Click Tools Tour + New Features – Recast Software
Come get a deep dive into Right Click Tools including a tour of new features recently released, security and compliance dashboards, and our automation platform, all built into Configuration Manager. Plus, plenty of time for Q&A.

What you will learn:
– How Right Click Tools instantly surfaces common gaps as it relates to LAPS, BitLocker, Client Health, Active Directory, Software patches, known vulnerabilities and more. Plus, how you can quickly remediate any issues you find.
– How Right Click Tools can increase your compliance while making you more productive.
