Managing Microsoft Desktops: Apps and Data

by Glenn Weadock

Mobile Device Management (MDM) in Microsoft Intune is great for deploying apps to Windows 10 systems, and Intune Mobile Application Management lets us customize those apps and secure corporate data with configuration and protection policies.

What you'll learn

After an organization has deployed Windows 10, enrolled it into management, configured it, and secured it, the time has come to deploy and manage the apps that run above it, and secure the data that those apps can access. In this course, Managing Microsoft Desktops: Apps and Data, you will gain the ability to distribute and customize Windows 10 apps and keep their related data stores inside the corporate perimeter. First, you will learn about deploying apps with Microsoft’s cloud-based tools, Intune and the Store for Business. Next, you will discover details about deploying Office 365, creating single-app systems, and sideloading apps. Finally, you will explore ways to protect corporate data by using app protection policies for iOS and Android, and Windows Information Protection for Windows 10. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to deploy and configure apps on Windows 10 devices and restrict the actions that users of those apps can take in order to keep business information safe. This course aligns with the learning objectives for the new MD-101 exam to obtain certification as a Modern Desktop Administrator Associate.
