This Service update to Unified Endpoint Manager 2020.1 follows the updated release cadence by delivering regular quarterly updates to our annual major release with the following improvements:
- Patch Automation now helps admins simplify their patch management and deployments within Unified Endpoint Manager with a simplified user interface and automated processes. Efficiently deploy third-party patches with less risk and ensure a more secure environment. Admins can now build custom patch campaigns, decide how to deploy updates, and monitor patch-acceptance results.
- MacOS and iOS Management enhancements specifically give admins more control and easier management of these devices. Enhancements include iOS Portal, Apple Volume Purchase (VPP), and simplified Apple Push Notification Service (APNS) in Unified Endpoint Manager. Additionally, remote controlling MacOS devices is now easier along with performance improvements for quicker inventory scanning. Learn more about managing Apple devices here.
- Remote Control updates now support full-screen capability along with Alt+Tab keyboard switching between applications, creating a better service experience for IT analysts and end users. Learn more about remote control here.
- NEW Linux Agent Settings have now been added to Unified Endpoint Manager. With these new agent settings for Linux, admins can schedule inventory, software distribution, and Patch Manager.
- Windows Notifications are now being employed for some Unified Endpoint Manager messages, making them ADA 508 compliant. Currently this is being used for reboot notifications, with additional future notifications for upcoming features.
- Modern Device Management (MDM) is a prominent feature needed in today’s IT environments. New updates have simplified the MDM user interface and navigation in Unified Endpoint Manager. Additionally, a “Getting Started” workflow has been introduced to step users through the configuration process with specific steps for Android Enterprise.
