Using PolicyPak with Group Policy can ensure that settings are delivered to most applications, and locked down and consistently applied and remediated. You can deploy PolicyPak directives using the Group Policy infrastructure you already have (or your own management tool, like SCCM).
PolicyPak and SCCM don’t try to do the same thing. SCCM is great for deploying software & reporting on compliance. PolicyPak delivers settings to your applications, performs UI lockdown & automatic remediation for a huge variety of settings. You can deploy PolicyPak directives using SCCM and deliver those directives to collections on your network or those over the Internet.)
The whitepaper shows you some of the key points to watch for in setting and delivering your VDI image to your users, and how adding PolicyPak to your Group Policy toolbox grants you increased control over both the VDI image and the applications within it.
Eleven reasons why VDI systems, like VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop and Citrix XenApp, work better when adding PolicyPak to them.
And yes, there are several tools which come in the box to help you manage settings and security protocols. But they aren’t enough to achieve full lockdown of these settings.
This paper takes you through the in-the-box tools for managing IE settings, shows you how far they get you, and explains how to achieve full control by adding PolicyPak to your admin toolbox.
Yes, Microsoft ships both ADM and ADMX templates for Office 2010 and Office 2013. But it’s a good idea to understand what they DO and DON’T DO, What you don’t know could hurt you.
See how PolicyPak can fill in the gaps when it comes to managing your Office 2010 and/or Office 2013 on your desktops.
The problem is, they can’t handle everything, and they aren’t enough by themselves to give you a well-managed desktop. For that, you’ll need some additional help, like PolicyPak.
Mess up a rollout – and your whole business (not to mention your reputation) suffers.
Of course, there’s a lot. But this guide will help you understand a handful of important things as you start to work and thing about Windows 8.
Microsoft has an amazing and ubiquitous array of management tools for your desktops and networks.
But they can’t handle everything, especially not with the evolving future of desktops, networks, VDI and BYOD. You’ll need an extra tool for that: PolicyPak.
This whitepaper will take you through the use cases of Microsoft’s management tools, examine their strengths and weaknesses and show you how PolicyPak is designed to work seamlessly with Microsoft to lock down, control and revert your network, user and security settings.
VMware’s suite of management tools are powerful, popular and extremely useful for busy admins.
But while they’re great at what they do, they can’t do everything, particularly when it comes to controlling the apps and systems they make available to your users.
This whitepaper will take you through the strengths and weaknesses of VMware’s management tools, and show you how PolicyPak is designed to work seamlessly with VMware’s management systems to give you the control you need over your network, user and security settings.
Security is a paramount issue for enterprise managers and network administrators today.
Your enterprise network is made up of hundreds or even thousands of stationary, mobile, or VDI-generated user desktops. Ensuring that all of these desktops remain secure throughout the enterprise is a daunting task.
Where do you even start?
In this whitepaper, learn what John Pescatore, Director of Security Trends thinks are the top things you could be (and should be) doing.
