Microsoft Endpoint Manager (MEM) has a handy new integration in the form of Nerdio Manager for MSP 3.0. With the new link, MSPs (Managed Service Providers) can manage their virtual desktops across Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop and Windows 365.
Nerdio is already closely linked with its Nerdio for Azure virtual desktop tool. Now the company says its MSP 3.0 solution will also help Microsoft Endpoint Manager users. As well as providing virtual desktops on Azure and Windows 365, it will also work on desktops and mobile devices through Microsoft Intune.
At the moment the integration has only some features, but when it is complete it will offer the following benefits:
- “Leverage Nerdio Manager to manage all endpoints centrally, including those in Azure Virtual Desktop or Windows 365 as well as physical desktops and mobile devices.
- Install and manage all types of applications on physical and virtual desktops.
- Apply policies and baselines to ensure endpoint compliance.
- Leverage endpoint analytics to monitor and improve performance and user experience.
- Provide remote assistance to users with remote help capabilities.”
It is worth noting Nerdio Manager for MSP is not a direct integration with Azure or Microsoft Endpoint Manager. Instead, it is available to customers through the Azure Marketplace as a cloud app.
The company also provides a Nerdio Manager for Enterprise solution. Both products are priced against how many users access the Microsoft Azure subscription.
Scott Manchester, director of program management for Windows 365 welcomed Nerdio's latest addition to Microsoft's cloud realm:
“We continue to be impressed by Nerdio's grasp on evolving IT needs and the future of virtual desktop, application and endpoint management,” Manchester says. “We look forward to how this new integration will benefit managed service providers and help them progress in their cloud journeys.”
Tip of the day: The Windows Clipboard history feature provides the functionality across device, space, and time, letting you copy on one computer and paste the text days later on a different PC. All of it is possible via the Windows 10 clipboard manager, which lets you view, delete, pin, and clear clipboard history at will.
In our tutorial we show you how to enable the feature, clear clipboard history, and enable/disable clipboard sync to meet your preferences. You can also create a clear clipboard shortcut for quick removal of stored content.
