Our customer, like many others, allows its users to use iMac and iPad for daily tasks. Any kind of application installation or change has to be done manually on each device. This individual management poses problems in terms of time, tracking and security.
The client's goal was to improve the security of administrator passwords.
After a thorough assessment of our customer's needs, we recommended the implementation of Microsoft Intune LAPS to improve the management and security of local administrator passwords. Here's how this solution helped their IT team:
- Enabling LAPS with Microsoft Intune : We enabled LAPS by configuring the appropriate policies in Microsoft Intune. This allowed us to deploy LAPS settings on all Windows devices in the company.
- Automatic password generation and rotation: Thanks to LAPS, local administrator passwords were now automatically generated and securely stored in Active Directory. Regular password rotation was programmed to reinforce security.
- Secure password access via Intune: IT staff could access local administrator passwords generated via the Microsoft console Intune. This eliminated insecure password sharing and reduced the risk of administrative accounts being compromised.
- Centralized monitoring and auditing: Intune provided monitoring and tracking capabilities for local administrator passwords. The IT team could check the status of password rotation and perform audits to ensure that security best practices were being followed.
With the implementation of Microsoft Intune LAPS, our client has seen several significant improvements:
- Enhanced security: Local administrator passwords were now unique, complex and regularly updated, reducing the risk of accounts being compromised.
- Simplified management: The IT team has benefited from centralized password management via Intune, which has simplified administrative account management operations.
- Reduction of human errors: With automatic password generation and scheduled rotation, human errors related to manual password management have been significantly reduced.
- Compliance and Reporting: Intune has enabled password compliance reporting and provided documentation for security audits.
With Microsoft Intune LAPS, our customer was able to improve the security of local administrator passwords, reduce the risk of compromise, and simplify the management of their IT estate. The IT team became more efficient and was able to focus on other critical tasks knowing that the administrator passwords were secure.
