A Cloud Management Gateway (CMG) enables management on corporate machines when working remotely, and provides capability to ensure the machine is up to date with the latest updates, applications and policy, even when VPN connection is disabled.
A Cloud Management Gateway is a great service to relieve an overloaded VPN connection of all the traffic from Configuration Manager.
By deploying the CMG as a cloud service in Microsoft Azure, it is possible to manage traditional clients that roam on the internet without additional on-premises infrastructure.
This means you don’t need to expose your on-premises infrastructure to the internet.
Cloud Management Gateway helps you
- Manage traditional Windows clients with Active Directory domain-joined identity.
- Manage traditional Windows 10 clients with modern identity, either hybrid or pure cloud domain-joined with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).
- Install the Configuration Manager client on Windows 10 devices over the internet
