We get it – managing Windows Endpoints is a tough enough job in ConfigMgr/Intune. Updates, Patches, FileVault2 – oh my! It’s a full-time job – but how about:
  • Those Macs in Marketing? 
  • Those Chromebooks in the Computer Lab?
  • Those Android & iPhones in the Sales Department?

As a SysAdmin, the days of offering a static group of end users a few flavors of Windows Laptops are long gone. For many IT orgs, BYOD has given way to CYOD (Choose Your Own Device.) End users don’t necessarily work in offices or cubicles anymore either – they’re mobile and on the go…using all TYPES of devices to connect to back end data sources on your network via VPN or cloud-based apps.

And let’s talk about BREACHS – 90% of breaches could have been AVOIDED if IT departments simply applied patches that had ALREDY BEEN RELEASED by solution providers. What if it was as easy as right-click?

What you will learn:
  • Patching Mac’s with WSUS and ADRs
  • Deploy mobileconfig files to a Mac from a DP or Parallels MDM
  • Built into ConfigMgr Apple DEP for Zero Touch enrollment
  • Enrollment Off-prem and policy enforcement
  •  Available or Mandatory Task Sequences for Macs
In this session, we talk about the world we – as SysAdmins – live in and how Parallels is leading the way to help us survive in it.

Parallels Mac Management allows administrators to maximize investments they’ve already made and use SCCM as the single pane of glass to manage both PCs and Mac.
