Welcome to Recast’s Endpoint Management Recap, October 2023 – by Daniel Engberg

Hello!

I trust this message finds you well. As we approach the end of October, I hope you’re soaking up the Halloween spirit.

This month, there has been a lot of talk around Copilot. A particular point of interest for many has been integrating Intune data with Security Copilot.

I’ve been using AI tools more and more in my life. Tools like ChatGPT have become indispensable in my daily activities, enhancing efficiency and creativity. As for Copilot, I’m waiting for the opportunity to test it out, hopefully soon!

Next month, I’m expecting that we will see quite a lot of news from Microsoft Ignite, so stay tuned until then!
