New Challenges?
The transition to so called 'Modern' management from the cloud is happening fast. Now that more content is coming from the Cloud, we need a way to manage these downloads and minimize the pressure on our WAN links. 

When the data your clients need lives almost exclusively in the cloud, let them handle the sharing and keep as much of the data transfer as possible inside your own walls. To do this we need:

  • Solid settings management  
  • Efficient Peer-to-peer sharing where possible 
  • Automated caching of important content  

Why StifleR+Intune?
The journey to 'Modern Management' can be painful - there are many configurations and 'gotchas' when moving from a traditionally managed on premise solution. StifleR can help with the transition and ongoing management

  • Gather insight and collect data about networks  
  • Collect information about your Intune clients 
  • Use templates to dynamically manage settings 
  • Track issues and resolve them remotely using Remote tools
  • View software downloads in real-time  
  • Ensure that bandwidth is carefully managed
  • Serverless office management  

Typical case
When we’re migrating from a traditional 'on premise' solution (such as Microsoft Configuration Manager), we take for granted that we can fully prepare our clients before delivering them to our users. Our users are used to receiving a new device, logging in, and instantly being able to start using the apps that they are used to.

We tend to want to use the same approach when using modern solutions like Windows Autopilot. And why shouldn't we?
The challenge
With most content now being downloaded from the cloud, we’re putting a lot of pressure on our network, apps fail to download due to timeouts, and if we’re really out of luck even the Autopilot process times out and fails. With efficient peer-to-peering can we speed up our downloads and at the same time keep friends with the networking team?
Enter StifleR Client Management
2Pint’s StifleR manages all transfers via WAN or LAN by collectively monitoring and controlling your endpoint’s download activity. It controls Peer to Peer (P2P) enabled content transfers from both the Cloud/Internet and/or corporate data sources. It can also take care of automating the vital settings required to keep you clients downloading in the most efficient way.

Delivery Optimization, optimization!
Applications distributed through Intune generally come as an Intune Win32 App or from the Microsoft Store. Both of these methods support P2P through Delivery Optimization, and that’s great! However, maintaining all of the required configurations can be painful. 

Here are some benefits of having StifleR manage and enhance your Delivery Optimization performance: 

  • StifleR will automatically learn about your networks and arrange them logically for viewing in our dashboards 
  • StifleR will then automatically ensure that DO will only peer between subnets withing a local network group
  • Optimizes DO performance on Wi-Fi networks
  • The StifleR agent can 'bridge' between subnets using DNS-SD for even more efficiency.
  • Downloads can be prioritized based on importance i.e patches
The StifleR templates allow 'set-and'forget' dynamic client configuration.

  • VPN Management 
  • Templates for every type of LAN/WAN/Home connection
  • Create your own custom templates if required 
  • Also manages Microsoft Connected Cache settings
  • Applies BranchCache AND Delivery Optimization settings 
Our dashboards give you a vital insight into your Intune client performance:

  • Real-time content download tracking
  • Network location and Client tracking
  • Delivery Optimization statistics
  • Built-in suite of Remote Support tools
  • Network device information and real-time connectivity
  • Disk and local file cache statistics
  • Local Administrator information
