Deploy and protect endpoints for hybrid work environments

The workplace is evolving and requires an innovative approach for endpoint modernization. Microsoft is bridging employee experiences and security with modernized endpoints that enable organizations to adapt to today’s new world of work in a secure way across a range of key business scenarios. Building security into apps and devices help reduce the threat of endpoint vulnerability for workers on the frontline, remote workers, in-office employees, and everything in between. Modernizing endpoints help advance to Zero Trust.

The new normal: Hybrid work means greater focus on endpoint security

Whether it’s a hybrid, remote, or in-office experience, endpoint vulnerabilities represent a real security risk. Companies must secure any potential access to their internal network from hacking and cyberattacks—which are more prevalent than ever. How can organizations modernize to protect themselves against these threats? Using Zero Trust within the context of Azure Active Directory as a foundation, anything connecting to your network must be validated before gaining access. And even when vetted, it will operate in a separate virtual machine to keep the rest of the network secure.

Microsoft Edge as default browser for access to legacy web apps and better security

Moving 130,000 workers across 200 worksites in over 90 countries to a new browser is no simple feat. Just think of the challenge ensuring that legacy apps and sites built for local business still work. To facilitate device management, GlaxoSmithKline enrolled every Windows 10 device in Microsoft Endpoint Manager, making available Microsoft Edge on their internal store for end users to install on-demand. Deployment only took four weeks, and it was so simple that no external services or support were needed.
