Description

Everything you've seen in the learning path thus far has focused on the on-premises use case. These days, though, the endpoint management solution your organization needs is one that can also service internet-based clients. Extending your on-premises MECM infrastructure to manage those clients is the topic for this course. You accomplish it by preparing for and deploying MECM's Cloud Management Gateway into an available Azure subscription.

In this fifth course out of sixteen, Microsoft Endpoint Manager: Cloud Management Gateway with MECM, you'll get an introductory look at the Cloud Management Gateway itself. First, you'll get to know the use cases for the CMG, and how and where it fits into the rest of Microsoft Endpoint Manager, including Microsoft Intune. Then, you'll prepare the hierarchy for and then deploy the CMG into an Azure subscription. Once deployed, you'll get a chance to see the user experience for clients who leave your local-area network. Next, you'll explore a few special situations for deploying MECM clients to machines outside your LAN who need to connect to MECM via the CMG. Finally, you'll explore a very different tool for extending not only client access, but also your server infrastructure to your Azure subscription.

Course Overview
Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you've found the 5th course in my learning path on the implementation and everyday use of Microsoft Endpoint Manager, including configuration manager, or MECM, and Microsoft Intune. I am a Principal Author Evangelist here at Pluralsight, and I've been working with MECM since way back in the days of SMS 1.2. Everything we've discussed in the learning path thus far has focused on the on‑premises use case. These days, though, the endpoint management solution your organization needs is one that can also service internet‑based clients. Extending our on‑premises MECM infrastructure to manage those clients is the topic for this course. We accomplish it by preparing for and deploying MECM's cloud management gateway into an available Azure subscription. In this 5th course out of 16, you'll first get an introductory look at the cloud management gateway itself. You'll get to know the use cases for the CMG, and how and where it fits into the rest of Microsoft Endpoint Manager, including Microsoft Intune. Then, you'll prepare the hierarchy for and then deploy the CMG into an Azure subscription. Once deployed, you'll get a chance to see the user experience for clients who lead your local area network. Next, you'll explore a few special situations for deploying MECM clients to machines outside your LAN who need to connect to MECM via the CMG. Finally, you'll explore a very different tool for extending not only client access, but also your server infrastructure there into your Azure subscription. If you've just been tasked with implementing and/or managing a Microsoft Endpoint Manager environment, this course is your next stop in brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here, you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as we explore all the major areas of endpoint configuration that you get with a fully realized Microsoft Endpoint Manager solution. Let's get started!
