Microsoft Intune: Management + Security
Enterprise security and management for PCs, mobile devices and apps.
What is Microsoft Intune and Enterprise Mobility + Security?
Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based mobile management suite that provides mobile devices, applications, and PC management. Businesses need the freedom to move and work from anywhere. So how do you ensure that your corporate data is secure when accessed on a mobile device?
That’s where Intune steps in. It helps your organisation to manage the mobile devices and apps your employees use by protecting confidential information at all points. By controlling the way your employees access and share data across all devices, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that your company’s security protocols remain in effect.
Don't be complacent
Businesses without a mobile security plan are twice as likely to have company data compromised.
How Microsoft Intune can help your business
Better device management
Device management is a critical issue for all businesses. With Microsoft Intune, you can implement complete control over company-owned devices. This simplifies keeping your company data secure, no matter where it is accessed. Intune can also support ‘bring your own’ devices (BYOD) by giving users options to enrol or use app protection policies.
Improved IT experience
Microsoft Intune simplifies IT operations by quickly onboarding multiple devices and deploying software across all enrolled devices simultaneously.This makes it easy to control updates so that all users have up to date software, bolstering compliance to security protocols at all times.
Secure app management
Intune can protect business data, even on apps. That’s because Intune can configure app settings, track app usage, and remove business data from both company and personal devices. It also offers additional security with app protection policies. This includes removing access and isolating company data on devices.
Intune allows you to manage mobile devices in the cloud. That means you can eliminate the need to purchase and maintain any infrastructure. Intune is also a cost-effective way to deploy endpoint management, with a flexible licensing structure based per user rather than per device.
Microsoft Intune features
Mobile Device Management (MDM)
With MDM, you get complete control over organisation-owned devices, including settings, features, and security. Once users enrol, they receive rules and settings through policies configured in Intune. This allows you to keep track of all employee devices, including personal devices used for work.
Mobile Application Management (MAM)
MAM means that you can also protect company data on mobile applications. This includes both store-bought and custom made apps. So you won’t have to worry about vulnerabilities with app security. Like the device management feature, app management can be deployed on company-owned and BYOD devices.
Compliance & Controlled Access
With Azure AD integration, you’ll enable identity and access management controls. That means you can ensure only those with permission can access company data. Likewise, you can lock down services, so they’re only available to specific mobile apps. Intune gives assurance that company policies and protocols are followed.
