Creating a standardised image across your fleet of devices will make it much easier to manage the modern workplace, whether that’s devices inside of your network or those roaming past the edge. It’s generally much easier to keep up to date with the latest updates and patches when you only have a handful of variants to cater for, creating a securer and less vulnerable environment for your users to work from.

Using tools such as System Center Configuration Manager® (SCCM) to design and construct an SOE alongside RMM tools such as SolarWinds® N-central to manage end user functions create a seamless partnership that works well for our team. Investing some time into a logical task sequence can save you hours of time building out machines manually, it’s also an extremely scalable feature that allows for keeping in line with Microsoft’s continuous current branch update model.

Your SOE is at the forefront of network security and should be treated as such, following best practices such as principle of least privilege and creating organisation wide policies that will create for a safe working environment. Using the best tools available will put you in a strong position to manage your fleet and we find this is essential to keeping your end user network compliant.

If your organisation requires assistance with building or maintaining an SOE, or should you require System Center Configuration Manager® (SCCM) deployed internally, S5 Technology Group have certified and experienced SCCM administrators available to assist.
