Deep Dive: Cláudio Rodrigues compares Microsoft UPD and FSLogix Profile/Office 365 Container

Posted by Gabe Knuth on Oct 30, 2018 1:48:34 PM

FSLogix created Profile Container to address the challenges of folder redirection and roaming profiles, while also supporting Office 365 and other applications that didn’t behave properly with any other profile storage solution. Though it may look similar to Microsoft’s UPD on the surface (both approach the problem using a virtual hard disk that contains the profile, which is attached to the OS at logon), the FSLogix implementation goes above and beyond UPD to provide an entirely seamless remote profile experience that supports any application, without roaming profiles, folder redirection, or a backend system. With our new Cloud Cache technology, those profile containers can be stored in multiple locations at the same time, even in the cloud.

Clive Longbottom: MSPs need to think beyond physical security

Posted by Clive Longbottom on Aug 28, 2018 10:29:36 AM

As an MSP, you probably spend a lot of time making sure that your platform is secure — using long, complex passwords and (hopefully) two-factor authentication wherever possible; specifically named superuser accounts, rather than general shared sysadmin ones; heuristic-based anti-malware tools; and so on.
