Modern deployment with Windows AutoPilot – A key component for moving to modern IT is to move to a modern deployment mechanism and away from traditional imaging.  In this session, we’ll talk about Windows AutoPilot, which enables this modern deployment scenario, and talk about new announcements made at Ignite around this.

Beyond Microsoft Patches: The Art of Patching the Right Things at the Right Time – Keeping up with the patching of non-Microsoft applications is a pain for you, but leaving those applications unpatched will get you in trouble with security teams and leave your company exposed to unnecessary risk. Flexera will discuss how we can help you automate and accelerate patching of non-Microsoft applications using your Microsoft infrastructure.

What you will learn:

  • Why patching non-Microsoft is important
  • How to simplify the process of identifying and prioritizing patches
  • How to leverage you Microsoft infrastructure to patch all non-Microsoft applications

Deploying and managing Windows Defender application control in the real world – With over hundreds of thousands of new malicious files created per day, the fight against malware using traditional techniques (i.e.: signature based detection) is a never-ending game of whack-a-mole. Windows 10 fundamentally changes the game for enterprise security with Device Guard which offers next generation application control. In this session we provide prescriptive guidance to help you guide customers as they plan, deploy, and manage Device Guard enabled devices. We show you where Device Guard can be easy to deploy and where is can be difficult. We also provide insights into our roadmap that is designed to make it easy and for everyone down the road. Note: This session is part of the core Windows Security session set.
