TEMPE, Ariz., July 15, 2019 – Insight Enterprises (NASDAQ: NSIT), the global provider of Insight Intelligent Technology Solutions™ for organizations of all sizes, is partnering with Microsoft to offer Microsoft Managed Desktop. The cloud-based management offering, which activates the power of the Microsoft platform with service management and security monitoring by Microsoft, helps clients empower their end users with an evergreen, modern experience maximizing productivity and employee experience.

For business and IT leaders wanting to accelerate their digital transformation, Microsoft Managed Desktop is a cloud-based IT management and security monitoring service that helps businesses delight users and empower IT.

Microsoft Managed Desktop is built on top of Windows 10, Office 365 ProPlus and Microsoft security and compliance technologies to offer businesses platform-wide data insights and expert management.

“Achieving the agility and scalability to deliver the latest technology – and best experience – to workers can be a winding road for companies. It often requires broader expertise to map out solutions that make the innovation journey as smooth as possible,” said David Mayer, vice president and general manager, Connected Workforce at Insight. “As one of Microsoft’s top global providers of software, hardware and cloud solutions, our collaborative approach to desktop management coupled with Microsoft Managed Desktop’s secure, always-updated environment empowers IT teams to focus on strategic initiatives that can really drive their business.”
