JNUC 2022: Improve interoperability with software management solutions

Make sure Mac and Windows devices are compliant

With these interoperability tools, IT administrators can see which devices are not compliant with the organization’s security policies and standards.

“If you want to take it a step further, we can even block this device from accessing company data,” Kasparian said. “For example, we can block them from accessing email or using any web application that has a single sign-on utility.”

Businesses can set up Conditional Access policies that process user data and activity against compliance policies and automatically shut down anyone who fails to meet requirements. This can protect businesses from employees who click on phishing emails or engage in other risky behaviors.

Other software solutions, like JamfProtect, an endpoint detection and response utility for Apple users, can help IT managers see if malware is running on any macOS device. With tools like Microsoft Sentinelthat gathers Microsoft-side security logs, IT can unlock interoperability for security monitoring.

Additionally, with Microsoft Sentinel integration, organizations can access utilities such as remediation playbooks. “Playbooks can configure automation rules to help you triage incidents in Microsoft Sentinel,” Kasparian said. “You can use them to automatically assign incidents to the right personnel, close noisy incidents or known false positives, change their severity, and add tags.”

Rely on the expertise of a partner to set up full-stack management

The integrations, the amount of data, and the number of technologies to connect can seem overwhelming to an inexperienced IT manager.

“That’s where CDW can step in and streamline that process for you,” Kasparian said. “We have several services to help combine these capabilities together, do it in a fast and efficient way where your IT will understand, in the end, how to move forward and use these capabilities for the future.”

CDW’s combination of Microsoft and Apple engineers can help business owners integrate Jamf Protect with Microsoft Sentinel and Jamf Pro with Microsoft Intune. They can help configure conditional access and compliance policies, as well as basic unified reporting with Microsoft Power BI.

The CDW team can even run a report of discovery to analyze an organization’s environment and help IT managers determine which solutions will work best for their teams.
