Endpoint Management is the ability to provide central management of JMU-owned computers and other devices. Central management of endpoints reduces risks to you and the university from unpatched and unsupported software, viruses, and other threats.  Examples:

  • Administering configuration settings
  • Enforcing endpoint security standards
  • Inventorying hardware and software
  • Providing remote assistance for support issues
  • Deploying patches to software and operating systems
