Course OverviewMicrosoft 365 Device Management focuses on how to establish Microsoft Intune, enroll devices to Intune, monitor the devices, and control what users can do from the enrolled devices by using conditional access policies. If you are already managing devices by using a traditional device management tool such as Configuration Manager, you will be interested to know how you can seamlessly move to modern management, in which devices are managed by Intune, and how you can benefit from new device management capabilities, such as compliance, conditional access, and Windows Autopilot to deploy new devices from the cloud.The course begins by examining how to move from traditional management, where devices are managed by Configuration Manager, to modern management, where you can benefit from new capabilities such as device compliance and conditional access. This journey can begin by enabling co-management, which you can do in your current environment by adding Intune as an additional device management option. You can then move management of some Windows 10 devices to Intune, while all other devices remain managed by Configuration Manager. After you get confidence and experience with the benefits of modern management, you will probably want to move the management of your other devices to Intune as well.The course then examines how you can monitor Windows 10 devices by using Windows Analytics. You will better understand the differences between quality updates and feature updates, as well as the Windows as a Service (WaaS) model, and when you must upgrade Windows 10 to a newer version to be supported by Microsoft. Although traditional, image-based deployment is still supported with Windows 10, many organizations will start exploring dynamic deployment and modern deployment options, such as Windows Autopilot.The course concludes with an examination of how to implement Mobile Device Management (MDM). With Microsoft 365 you have two Mobile Device Management options: Intune and MDM for Office 365. You will learn how to perform an initial configuration of Intune so that it can manage Windows 10 and Android devices, as well as the additional preparation steps that are required for iOS devices. As Intune can manage only enrolled devices, you will learn how to enroll different device types. You will also learn also how to define a company baseline and use Intune to monitor device compliance against the baseline.What You’ll Learn:Plan your organization for Co-managementPrepare your Windows 10 devices for Co-managementTransition from Configuration Manager to IntuneConfigure Microsoft Store for BusinessPlan for Mobile Application ManagementPlan your Windows 10 deployment strategyPlan your Windows 10 subscription activation strategyResolve Windows 10 upgrade errorsImplement Windows 10 AnalyticsDeploy Mobile Device ManagementManage devices with Mobile Device ManagementEnroll devices to Mobile Device ManagementManage device compliancePrerequisitesThis course is designed for persons who are aspiring to the Microsoft 365 Enterprise Admin role and have completed one of the Microsoft 365 work load administrator certification paths.

Course OverviewThis course teaches IT Professionals to understand the challenges that organizations face in keeping modern IT environments secure, as the more distributed environments that are part of a cloud-first or hybrid world have rapidly created new security challenges for IT. The course focuses on three key areas in the defence against attackers who target security vulnerabilities, resulting particularly from credential theft and compromised identities: Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), and Azure Active Directory Privileged Identity Management (PIM).Students learn to implement two-step verification to secure the sign-in process, as well has how to use advanced features like trusted IPs and Fraud Alerts with MFA to customize their identity access strategy. Using Privileged Identity Management, students learn how to apply just the right amount of access rights for just the right amount of time to the various administrative roles as well as to resources.What You’ll Learn:Use Azure RBAC to grant a granular level of access based on an administrator’s assigned tasks.Use Azure Multi-Factor Authentication to configure a strong authentication for users at sign-in.User Azure AD Privileged Identity Management to configure access rights based on just-in-time administration.PrerequisitesSuccessful Cloud Administrators start this role with experience on operating systems, virtualization, cloud infrastructure, storage structures, and networking.
