IST Managed PC's: Laptops and Tablets

Managed Notebooks (Laptops and Tablets)

Notebooks, due to their portability, need to be treated somewhat differently than desktop computers. The biggest change from IST's perspective is that we accept the vendor-installed operating system on notebooks, whereas we replace a desktop image with a secure image we've built ourselves. This puts the onus on the notebook owner then to secure the system, install software, access network shares and resources and keep the system up-to-date. Having your notebook managed severely reduces those concerns. See the following for more details:
