Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM)

Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) is a Windows product that enables administrators to manage the deployment and security of devices and applications across an enterprise. Administrators also commonly use SCCM for endpoint protection. SCCM is part of the Microsoft System Center systems management suite.

Core features of Microsoft SCCM

Some core features in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager include:

  • Windows management- To keep pace with updates to Windows 10.
  • Endpoint protection- To provide identification and malware protection.
  • Reporting- To present information on users, hardware, software, applications, and software updates.
  • Operating system (OS) deployment- To distribute operating systems to devices in an enterprise.
  • Software update management- This allows users administrators to deliver and manage updates to devices across an enterprise.
  • Application delivery-, Which allows administrators to deliver an application to all devices across an enterprise.
  • Health monitoring- Which shows client health and activities in the console, and can alert users if health statistics decrease past a specified level.

Several key features of System Center Configuration Manager help administrators address the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend in the enterprise, including user-centric management. End users can search for applications with a self-service software center and specify times when installations and upgrades take place. IT administrators can install applications in different ways on different devices. For example, as a native application on a primary device or as a Remote Desktop Services app or App-V program on a tablet. SCCM also includes role-based access control (RBAC), which enhances system security by only showing end users the interface elements that apply to their specific roles as defined by Active Directory.
