This is a 2 part series and I would like to get to the nitty gritty of BYOD because as IT Pros or leaders who are managing IT in an organization, we have dealt with BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) related questions at least once in our career. Not once, but maybe daily or maybe at least once every month. Some have a very easy policy where BYODs are allowed whereas some organizations have strict policies where they don’t allow BYODs at any point or if you are to access company data on your personal device the device must comply accordingly. It all depends on how you need to allow your data to be a ..read more

This is my take on the Azure AD Cross-Tenant access settings. This was something I was hoping to configure a while back. However the capabilities weren’t available at that time, but the need for some kind of a trust relationship between two Azure AD tenants was bubbling up. Gone of days organizations set up trust between 2 AD environments. The functionalities have been moved to cloud identity being the source of truth. Why Cross-Tenant Access Matters? Simple answer, this answers the age-old question, traditional Active Directory environments support domain trusts and resources via that trust ..read more

Microsoft Defender SmartScreen is the frontline defense against all threats. Did I put that right? It truly is the frontline protector in the Windows computer and the Edge browser on any OS platform. I’ve been dealing with a lot of SmartScreen configuration tasks, and troubleshooting scenarios when working with customers and I wanted to write about my experience with it. I believe everyone has seen some sort of a SmartScreen by now. It can be something that pops up when you try to install an unverified app or when trying to download a file that you may think it’s safe but in reality, is not, o ..read more

by Shehan Perera
1M ago
A new feature was recently introduced and is still in the Public Preview mode. Multiple Admin Approvals or MAAs. At this stage, this can be only applied to Apps and Scripts. What this does is let you as an Admin create MAA policies to make sure changes to App policies and Scripts will go through more than one admin for approvals and making it a protected resource. This really helps against Intune Environment getting compromised and bad attackers changing the policies to remove certain important policies and or to make sure mishaps won’t change a thing What I will Be Covering?

In my 1st blog post related to Windows 365, I discussed how to get started with the product. This is post #2 of the series and in this, I want to discuss what to think when planning for your Windows 365 deployment and especially how to set up RBAC. Before jumping into the technical side of W365 it is important to understand why you need Cloud PCs in the first place. And once identified, triaging the tasks are essential and that’s where the RBAC comes in. As with other products, Windows 365 has a main admin role as well as built-in roles along with options for custom roles if needed. This is my ..read more

Been working on this blog post for a while as this talks about an important service in Azure AD. In a standard organization environment, how many resources will a user access from the point where they have Onboard to the day that they are offboarded from all the systems? Are you able to keep a track of all the access requests? or are you able to automate user access and apply some smarts throughout the employee lifecycle for those scenarios? Limit IT Service Desk interactions from those types of activities so they can focus on important matters. My solution is mainly around Lifecycle workflows ..read more

There were a lot of new updates for Microsoft Intune at the Ignite 2022. Organizational Messages are one of them.

This certainly has the guts to be a better way to notify users of any important messaging rather than them ignoring a message from IT that came as an email What I Will Be Covering?
