Windows Group Policy Objects functionality

expand collapsive

I think it would be a killer feature for managing Windows systems if you could add Group Policy Objects functionality to Hexnode MDM.

It will require major work in the Windows Agent but I think this could really set you apart from the competition.

Suggestion on how to implement it:

Give the Hexnode admin the ability to upload ADMX/ADML files to GUI and control the features made available through these files.

The Windows Agent will need to make the changes according to the policies.

You could also include a reporting feature for the Windows Agent so that you could set a set of policies to keep an eye on.

This way you can enable the control of both Windows and third party software settings as they often provide GPO settings in form of ADMX/ADML.

The sky is the limit but here are some examples of what it can control:

  • When and how to do Windows updates
  • Windows firewall
  • Printer installation
  • Drive mappings
  • Browser settings
  • Network settings
  • Power settings
  • Acrobat settings
  • Office settings
  • Start up scripts
