Welcome to Recast’s Endpoint Management Recap, Vol. 54

by Daniel Engberg

Hi everyone!

Happy summer from Sweden. I hope you’re well and enjoying the season. I will soon go on a long holiday with a combined vacation and parental leave (8 weeks). But don’t worry, the REMR will maintain its monthly schedule for July and August.

While most of the talk in the endpoint management space revolves around Intune, you shouldn’t overlook ConfigMgr, which continues to receive robust updates. The latest technical preview, version 2405, introduces several enhancements to improve security and performance.

Thank you to everyone in our community for continuing to learn and create new content.

Enjoy the updates and have a great summer!
