*Updated Comparison chart Intune enrollment with Education Devices

Here is the comparison chart for the new Education Devices from HP, Lenovo and Acer.

UPDATED: Lenovo Yoga and Dell Latitude

This should illustrate how long time it takes for a student to setup his PC. On Wipe drive i used WICD, On Intune Enrollment I typed the email and waited for MFA. The actual clean logon without user intervention is much faster. On the new user switch, the device was not prepared with Setup My School PC for true multi user. The time it takes is for Windows to prepare a loaner PC or allow a student to borrow another PC in a 1-1 scenario

Note that during the OOBE and user switching i actually typed in information, hence the benchmark is subject to my typing speed.

Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics – False positive

The scenario here is that a company has hired an external consultant. The consultant was on vacation and sick for a total of about 1 month.

Once back at work he started accessing the system and doing this work. Immediately ATA became suspicious and sendt out an alert.

mail-warning-ata

ATA flagged the behavior as abnormal due to the consultant being away for such a long period of time.

identity-theft-ata

This said, a lot of companies are not closing down consultant accounts after they are done working. Some keep them open waiting for “next incident” and some just forget to remove them.

ATA can help you to keep track of this and alerts you if a old consultancy account is stolen.

Intune for Education portal

Yay, the new Intune Education Portal is live. you find it here:

It has:

  • Role-based security (create admins for a region or school)
  • HTML5 support
  • SDS integration
  • Granular deployment for schools
  • ++++ much more

portal-not-accessible

If you do not have access, just wait. You get a notification in the old silverlight portal when you can migrate.

Minecraft Education Edition Activation Emails

If you have ordered Minecraft Education Edition on EES you will get an activation email which places your licenses in Windows Store for Business

The sender is: Microsoft Online Services Team msonlineservicesteam@email.microsoftonline.com

One mail is for Faculty

activation-mail-minecraft-faculty

One is for Students

activation-mail-minecraft-students

Remember to open your browser in “incognito” or “in-private” mode Ctrl+Shift+P (Edge or IE) then shut down all other browser windows before you click the link. this way you prevent your licenses from ending up in the wrong place.
