Windows Device Management
Windows devices are at the heart of millions of offices worldwide. This includes Windows tablets, desktops, laptops, point-of-sale devices, and others. With so many Windows device types, it can be hard to do effective Windows device management. This is where a Windows MDM solution is essential. Whether businesses use work-owned Windows devices or allow employees to use their own as part of a BYOD program, a Windows 10 MDM can be a huge help. Once implemented, an MDM solution can solve challenges tied to ensuring Windows device security, management, and compliance.
Windows MDM for Device Lifecycle Management
The first step in managing Windows devices is to enroll the devices into a Windows MDM solution. Then you provision the devices by installing and configuring applications, applying security policies, and pushing content on the Windows devices. After provisioning, these Windows devices are deployed or delivered to the actual users. Once the devices are in active use, the Windows 10 MDM tool helps you manage and track those devices to ensure they remain secure and compliant. In case of non-compliance, you can use the Windows Mobile Device Management solution to take remedial actions as needed. Finally, once the devices become outdated or reach end-of-life (EOL), they are retired or decommissioned from the Windows MDM solution.
