Always On VPN at TechMentor 2023

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be presenting at this year’s TechMentor IT training conference! The event takes place July 17-21, 2023, at the Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington.

My Sessions

I will be delivering two talks at this year’s event.

TT04 – Deploying On-premises Certificates using Intune

In this talk, I’ll describe in detail how to deliver on-premises enterprise PKI certificates using Intune. We’ll cover all aspects of certificate delivery, including the Intune Certificate Connector configuration, device configuration profile options, advantages of PKCS over SCEP, and certificate template security best practices.

TT07 – Windows Always On VPN: Notes from the Field

During this session, I’ll share many tips, tricks, and best practices for deploying and managing Always On VPN client configuration settings using Intune. I’ll explain the limitations of the Intune VPN profile template and how to work around them using custom XML. I will also describe how to use Intune Proactive Remediation to optimize Always On VPN client configuration settings post deployment.
