This is the first in an exciting new series of posts to keep everyone in the know. In the Know posts showcase features or capabilities that already exist in the Cisco Meraki portfolio but may not be as well known. Up first are some of the major benefits of using the Cisco Meraki Systems Manager EMM solution with Windows 10 devices.
Installing software and keeping it up to date is one of the many concerns for today’s IT administrators. The Meraki cloud can centrally host up to 3GB of installer files in order to further simplify software deployment. Software can be hosted privately as well. To learn more about installing applications on traditional devices see our product documentation, or look below for an example.
A challenge of managing laptops, tablets, or phones is that it becomes easier than ever for sensitive data to end up in the wrong hands—literally. Systems Manager provides the ability to remotely wipe managed devices. Enough said.
REMOTELY WIPE MANAGED DEVICES AND SECURE SENSITIVE DATA
Whether Windows devices are corporate-owned or user-owned, it is sometimes necessary to restrict their functionality. Common restrictions include disallowing the use of a camera, disabling Cortana, restricting WiFi or Bluetooth access, preventing use of external storage, or removing access to Internet Explorer. Restrictions can be found in Dashboard by navigating to MDM > Settings > Restrictions.

It’s that time of the year again — the Cisco Meraki team is packed and ready to attend ISTE 2016 for the 5th year! If you’re also planning to attend, be sure to stop by booth #2537 and say hello to the Meraki team. There’s no way to miss us in our bright green Meraki T’s!
New Products and Dashboard
Just like every year, we’re bringing all our latest products — including the brand new MC 74 — and will be giving 1:1 demos of our dashboard each day. After 4 successful ISTE shows, we have a pretty good idea of what it is you’re looking to learn from us. That’s why we are switching it up (no pun intended) for ISTE 2016 and featuring more than just demos in the booth.
Mobility Management Lab
There’s no denying how important mobility management is in today’s classroom, so this year we are bringing along our Systems Manager experts to show off just how easy it can be with Meraki. Attend one of our hourly presentations in the Mobility Management Lab and you’ll walk away with a FREE Meraki hat! Here’s what we’ll be covering:
Cisco Collaboration Products
The Cisco Collaboration team will also be joining us in the booth to talk about the newest features for digital classrooms and the digital campus. Each presentation will take place twice a day, so swing by at a time that’s convenient and check out what they have to share.
No matter what you’re interested in learning this year at ISTE, the Cisco Meraki team is here to help. Hope to see you in Denver next week!
It may seem like the school year just wrapped up, but for IT administrators, a new school year with new teachers, students, and deployments of managed devices will be starting before long. Meraki wants to help make those device deployments easier on IT admins and their purse strings with special pricing on Systems Manager licensing through July 30th.
Meraki Systems Manager, Cisco’s Mobility Management solution, offers schools a simple, comprehensive way to manage and monitor devices, in and out of the classroom. Seamless integration with iOS 9.3 gives users access to Apple’s suite of powerful classroom tools, making Systems Manager a strong candidate for this year’s most useful teacher’s assistant.
Set up geofencing rules quickly and intuitively with Google Maps integration.
Geofence devices, push apps, restrict camera usage, and more—all through the intuitive Meraki dashboard. Systems Manager doesn’t require any additional Meraki hardware to work, but it should be noted that using Systems Manager in conjunction with the rest of Meraki’s full stack solution of access points, switches, and security appliances gives customers access to enhanced functionality.
