What Microsoft Intune Can Do for You

Security in a cloud-first, mobile-first world calls for a new approach. Using Microsoft Intune, organizations can provide their employees with access to corporate applications, data, and resources from virtually anywhere on almost any device while keeping corporate data secure. With the proliferation of cloud computing and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) scenarios, IT has changed the way it manages devices and applications, allowing employees to work from just about anywhere.

Microsoft Intune provides mobile device management, mobile application management, and PC management capabilities from the cloud. Policies can be applied to determine device health, restrict functionality of devices and limit access to certain resources to healthy, managed devices.

You can use MDM (Mobile Device Management) to ensure your devices meet the prescribed security bar by defining a compliance policy in Microsoft Intune.

Access to certain company information may be based on meeting certain device criteria. You can define the compliance policy so that access to sensitive resources can be restricted to devices that meet the criteria in the policy. Learn More about conditional access here.

Here is a list of things Microsoft Intune can provide to organizations:

  • Mobile Device Management

  • Compliance Policy

  • Software Deployments

  • Mobile Application Management

  • Endpoint Protection

  • Remote Assistance

  • Management with or without Enrollment

To maintain security across a wide range of user devices, you can setup device configuration policies that requires devices to be set with several specific configuration settings.

To make these policies scalable across many different devices and users, setup conditional access solution that ensures devices cannot access Office 365 data unless they meet the company’s compliance requirements.

Microsoft Intune is uniquely able to manage and enforce app restrictions for Outlook and other Office mobile apps on both iOS and Android platforms. This provides a best in class and consistent user experience for email, productivity, and collaboration while protecting corporate data.

Intune App Protection policies restrict the location where you can save corporate data as well as the applications which you try to import/export corporate data to/from. With or without enrollment app protection, policies set by your IT can block users from exporting data to unauthorized locations – thereby ensuring corporate data remains safe and secure.

Intune solutions will meet your goals to provide mobile users a safe and secure method to access sensitive corporate data with or without requiring them to enroll their devices. So, in today’s mobile landscape you need solutions that work for you and your staff. As your users access corporate information from many locations outside of the corporate network, such as home, customer sites, or coffee shops, you can be assured their access and your data is secure.
