In the modern workplace employees are increasingly dependent on mobile devices to complete daily work tasks, but with these demands come unique security challenges.

 Whether providing corporate devices for your users or allowing them to use their own, IT must manage these devices quickly and efficiently to meet the user’s needs. However, the need to ensure that the apps and data on these devices are protected is crucial.

 Intune enables you to manage mobile devices and mobile applications while securing your company data and only allowing approved users access. It closely integrates with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) for full identity control and Azure Rights Management (Azure RMS) for data protection

Intune provides a flexible and scalable mobility solution for your organisation across all the major platforms (iOS, Android and Windows).

The primary tools that Intune offers include:

  • Mobile device management (MDM): The ability to enroll devices in Intune so that you can configure, monitor, and initiate remote actions on those devices, such as wiping them.
  • Mobile application management (MAM): The ability to publish, push, configure, secure, monitor, and update mobile apps for your users.
  • Mobile application security: As a part of managing mobile apps, the ability to help secure mobile data by isolating personal data from corporate data and allowing the corporate data to be selectively wiped.
