Microsoft Intune

Microsoft Intune uses a unified web-based administration console to provide device-management features, software-deployment capabilities, and security capabilities. Because it is a cloud-based management console, Microsoft Intune does not require a VPN connection to your local domain. Microsoft Intune does not require any established infrastructure, although it works well in combination with Configuration Manager.

One of the unique features found in Microsoft Intune is its customizable company portal. The company portal is an interface customized with downloadable applications that IT administrators can make available for an organization. The company portal also allows users to directly contact IT and request remote assistance.

Managing a Windows 10 PC in Microsoft Intune (or on a third-party MDM server) involves installing a piece of client software, which can be manually deployed, automatically deployed using Group Policy, or installed as part of an image. (For details, see This client handles enrollment, a process that installs one or more certificates on the mobile device to manage authentication, and then periodically synchronizes with the management server to check for updates and apply new policies.

Microsoft Intune includes the capability to deploy apps automatically during enrollment, and users can install additional apps from a self-service company portal. Users can securely access corporate information using Microsoft Office mobile apps and line-of business apps, with management having the capability to restrict actions that can leak sensitive data, like copy and paste or save as, to only apps managed by Intune.

For Windows 10 PCs, you can configure and deploy classic Windows apps using the Intune Software Publisher. Intune also can be used to remove corporate data and applications when a device is unenrolled, when it is determined to be out of compliance, or if it’s lost, stolen, or retired from use.
