Welcome to Recast’s Endpoint Management Recap, October 2022 – by Daniel Engberg

Hello!

It has been an exciting month, with the main event of course being Microsoft Ignite. This month’s newsletter has a separate section dedicated to the event, so I won’t go into too much detail here in the introduction.

Among the news announced at this year’s Ignite were some significant and minor branding changes and updates to the Microsoft product lineup.

We’ve also had the Microsoft Technical Take off, which provided a lot of excellent sessions! Check out some of the links below:

I hope you like this edition of the monthly recap newsletter.

See you in a month!

  • Windows Client 

We received the security baseline after the release of Windows 11 22H2. Another long-awaited feature is Windows LAPS, which can handle both local administrator passwords in AAD and AD, which was previously not possible without using a community solution.

  • Windows 365

Favorites this month for Windows are the new Microsoft Learn path and the Windows 365 app. The possibility of downsizing a Windows 365 Enterprise cloud PC will be helpful to some people. We also have some new security best practices defined by Microsoft.

Also, check out the blog posts by the community on the Windows 365 app:

endpoint management recap hardware and software updates from vendors

Every month, we cover updates to the tools, scripts, and software provided by the major hardware vendors related to enterprise client management. Check out the ConfigMgr Manufacturers page for a complete list of tools, blog posts, and information about the vendors.

** Much of this information is provided directly from the vendor, so when you see “we” think of it as, “Vendor Name,” and not Recast Software.

endpoint management recap community news

Due to the sheer amount of community content, I have decided only to include one post per contributor, to keep the size of the endpoint management recap down. Great work everyone with providing so much to us for free!
