We trust that you all have had a great time. In addition to getting fresh insights from industry experts, users were treated to some of the cool features that the Hexnode team are planning to release pretty soon. They even got to become Hexnode experts along the way by taking part in multiple certification workshops. These past 2 days were pretty awesome, but sadly all good things must come to an end. Now, without much further ado, let’s have a recap on what was discussed on HexCon20’s closing keynote address.
Working on the revamp of Hexnode MDM, conceptualizing Hexnode Do and implementing Hexnode Academy and Hexnode Connect right in the midst of the pandemic has not been easy. But all these hard wrought efforts were paid off by being able to share it with the users notes Apu. He then congratulated everyone who passed the certification. You’ll be delighted to note that everyone who passed the certification program today became the very first batch of Hexnode professionals and experts! Apu then moved on to give a brief summary of the all new Hexnode MDM.
“The goal is to completely change the way you manage your devices by making it easier, more efficient and interoperable” said Apu.
The aim of the first phase of the revamp was to simplify the console and add in some necessary enhancements. This will include changes in the policy configuration flow, app management and role-based access. Talking about Hexnode MDM and Hexnode Do, a common account will be provided in which users can access both Hexnode MDM and Hexnode Do, if they have active subscriptions for both. Hexnode Do will initially be available as an add on service to your Hexnode MDM subscription, by connecting Do with Hexnode MDM, users will be able to have complete end to end security.
Next, we got to hear some of the exciting updates to Hexnode MDM, which offered users more options to customize the portal in a way that gives them more freedom to ensure a smooth workflow. Here’s what we know:
It was revealed that the Hexnode team were planning on focusing more on bringing in new desktop management capabilities. Some of the essential features that they have already started working on includes:
The team will incorporate some exciting features to the mobileOSs as well as soon as they are out.
Additionally, Hexnode customers will enjoy leveraging everything Apple School Manager offer to manage devices, people, and content, all from one place that matter most to education.
Few of these updates might not be available on the first release of the revamp. Don’t be disheartened though, you can get to see them in the forthcoming releases.
The global pandemic has completely changed where, what and how we work and has accelerated the shift towards cloud-based infrastructure and software-as-a-service to safeguard IT resilience. But this sudden onset has increased safety and reliability concerns where legacy security practices fall short. So, in order to ensure intrinsic security, the team is coming with Personal Information Managers (PIM) and planning to launch secure applications with which the users can safely access their confidential data and defend against the lateral threats across cloud environments.
Apu concluded by thanking all the speakers and attendees who spared their valuable time to share their insights and made the event a success!
It’s a credit to the Hexnode team for getting this event working online when many other events have been postponed or cancelled. We have a great blog coming out later that describes how our team made this happen.
We’ll also keep blogging many of the HexCon20 sessions so that you can get a recap of anything you’ve missed. Stay tuned!
