5 things you can do with Microsoft Intune

In today's work-from-anywhere world, securing and managing company devices is more important than ever. Microsoft Intune, a cloud-based mobile device management (MDM) solution, offers a powerful toolkit for IT admins to keep your organisation's data safe and employees productive. But what exactly can Intune do? Let's dive into our five favourite functionalities.


1. Manage your mobile device zoo

Gone are the days of scrambling to configure settings for each device type. Intune supports a wide range of platforms, including Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS.

From a single console, you can deploy settings, distribute apps, and enforce security policies – all without needing individual device interaction. With configuration profiles that have replaced group policies you can distribute unified settings across a group of users in one swoop.

2. Provide apps on demand

Ensuring employees have the right tools is crucial. Intune simplifies application management. You can deploy internal line-of-business apps, distribute essential Microsoft 365 tools, and even manage access to public app stores. This ensures everyone has the resources they need while maintaining control over what gets installed.

3. Implement strong security measures

Data breaches are a constant threat. Intune's robust security features help you keep your information safe. You can configure encryption policies, set strong password requirements, and even remotely wipe a lost or stolen device to ensure sensitive data doesn't fall into the wrong hands.

Devices managed under Intune can be set to become non-compliant after a set period of inactivity. This policy ensures that all devices enabled are current and automatically identifies those that are no longer in use.

4. Adhere to compliance with ease

Worried about devices meeting your organisation's security benchmarks? Intune lets you define compliance policies and gain real-time insights into your device health. You can set rules for things like password strength, malware protection, and OS updates. Intune will not only identify non-compliant devices but can also trigger actions to bring them back into compliance. Microsoft Intune can be a valuable tool to support your GDPR compliance journey by securing devices and user data.

Example policies include preventing users installing non verified add-ons and requiring software updates when made available.

5. Put the power in your employees’ hands

Self-service capabilities are a game-changer for both IT admins and employees. Intune allows users to easily enrol their devices, reset passwords, and access company resources – all through a user-friendly portal. This reduces the burden on IT and empowers employees to be more productive.


Microsoft Intune: more than just an MDM

While mobile device management is core to its functionality, Intune offers a broader feature set. From simplifying Windows Autopilot deployments to leveraging conditional access for enhanced security, Intune empowers businesses to manage their entire ecosystem of devices and applications.
