Litware has two main offices in New York and Los Angeles. Litware has five branch offices in Asia.
Current Business Model
The Los Angeles office has 500 developers. The developers work flexible hours ranging from 11 AM to 10 PM.
Litware has a Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager deployment.
During discovery, the company discovers a process where users are emailing bank account information of its customers to internal and external recipients.
The network contains an Active Directory domain that is synced to Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). The functional level of the forest and the domain is Windows Server 2012 R2. All domain controllers run Windows Server 2012 R2.
Litware has the computers shown in the following table.
The development department uses projects in Azure DevOps to build applications.
Most of the employees in the sales department are contractors. Each contractor is assigned a computer that runs Windows 10. At the end of each contract, the computer is assigned to a different contractor. Currently, the computers are re-provisioned manually by the IT department.
Litware identifies the following issues on the network:
– Employees in the Los Angeles office report slow Internet performance when updates are downloading. The employees also report that the updates frequently consume considerable resources when they are installed. The Update settings are configured as shown in the Updates exhibit. (Click the Updates button.)
– Management suspects that the source code for the proprietary applications in Azure DevOps in being shared externally.
– Re-provisioning the sales department computers is too time consuming.
Litware plans to transition to co-management for all the company-owned Windows 10 computers.
Whenever possible, Litware wants to minimize hardware and software costs.

– Prevent the sales department employees from forwarding email that contains bank account information.
– Ensure that Microsoft Edge Favorites are accessible from all computers to which the developers sign in.
