3 Lync Beyond the Desktop – Microsoft Lync 2013

4 Breaking UTSA’s Cultural Habits: There are four areas we can target to increase utilization and leverage Lync 1) Conference Rooms & Office :  UTSA departments have frequent meetings that require remote team members to travel o Move them to Lync for their meetings or webinars 2) Classrooms :  Academic Technology receives on average 8 service requests per month for support in a classroom in relation to a video collaboration connection o Move these Skype, GotoMeeting, & other desktop sharing UTSA app users to Lync 3) Lecture capture :  UTSA faculty frequently create lecture capture supplements using other software in the home/office o Move them to Lync to record self meetings – Introduce Lync Recording Manager 4) Mobile:  Certain UTSA departments use other avenues to connect to students o Move them from Skype, Google Hangouts, FaceTime, etc. to Lync

9 Questions or Recommendations?

10 Centralizing BitLocker Administration

11 What is MBAM? MBAM is a compliance and monitoring tool Stores BitLocker recovery keys in two locations One key stored in Active Directory One key stored in MBAM Recovery Database Allows users to recover BitLocker key from self-service portal

12 How does MBAM work? System will need MBAM Client installed MBAM Client will be added to the current Windows image Currently no planned forced push of MBAM System will require the SCCM Client installed Uses new feature called baseline configuration Uses hardware inventory scan to determine encryption status System will need Group Policy that controls settings of MBAM

13 MBAM Group Policy Settings Allowed to postpone encryption up to seven days Will not be able to write to a non-encrypted fixed drive MBAM for Windows 7 requires TPM chip enabled MBAM for Windows 8.1 works with TPM If TPM is unavailable Windows 8.1 will allow BitLocker with password

14 MBAM Self-Service The self-service screen can be accessed at the following link: To recover a key need at least the first 8 digits on the BitLocker recovery screen All Faculty and Staff will have access System will log you out after five minutes of inactivity
