Conestoga College was facing various challenges related to their move to a remote working and learning environment for their staff and students. They wanted to manage their 5,000 corporate-owned devices more effectively in the cloud to patch future updates automatically, save time for their IT technicians, and better manage their lab environment of shared computers that are used by the students.
They started their digital transformation journey in 2021 when they implemented Microsoft 365, Azure, Microsoft Defender, and Microsoft Sentinel. In July 2022, Conestoga wanted to tackle endpoint management to improve their security posture and automate their device deployment, monitoring and maintenance. They had already implemented Windows Autopilot so their IT technicians no longer needed to image the new laptops from the manufacturer. The next step was the implementation of Microsoft Endpoint Manager (MEM) to reach their goal.
As a trusted Microsoft partner, Softlanding offers Microsoft Imagine workshops to help organizations embrace a Secure Modern Workplace. Conestoga College decided to go with the Microsoft Endpoint Manager workshop and an Art of the Possible workshop.
