Friday Five: Windows and Enterprise Mobility #15

Crazy week, lots going on … what else is new… well this actually:

Support for Microsoft Passport for Work in Microsoft Intune

Peter Daalmans, one of my Dutch MVP friends for Intune, blogged about these new capabilities this week. What I love here is that you get complete control over Microsoft Passport for Work, a Windows 10 feature that helps enterprises prevent credential theft. Passport for Work places your authentication tokens into a (optionally) hardware secured container on your device and provide SSO to any Azure AD secured resources your user is allowed access to. This prevents them having to enter their password and reduces the chances of a phishing attack…among others.

Cloud Innovation for the year ahead

Mark Russinovich posted a superb blog post on where cloud is heading. My favorite prediction is that “Security becomes a cloud enabler”.

Box and Dropbox Integration

Office released real-time co-authoring for documents stored in Box and Dropbox, expanding the capability from SharePoint and OneDrive. Super cool for many people…well the Box CEO thinks so!

Configuration Manager Windows 10 Provisioning packages

Windows 10 brings the ability to configure a machine with provisioning packages. These packages can setup things like MDM enrollment. With Configuration Manager now supporting on-prem MDM for Windows 10, you now have the ability to bootstrap that enrollment with a provisioning package, removing complexity. Config Man will even create the packages for you and Gerry Hampson has a nice walk through for you!
