What is Microsoft Intune?

Microsoft Intune stands out as a cloud-based service that hones in on mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM). It’s not just about managing the devices and applications employees use to access corporate data, but also about ensuring security and compliance across the board. What sets Intune apart is its integration with the Microsoft Endpoint Manager suite, which includes Configuration Manager, offering a comprehensive endpoint management solution.

Improve Management & Security of Your Devices

Intune enhances the management and security of devices through several key features:

Device Management

Intune supports a wide range of devices, including Windows PCs, macOS, iOS, and Android devices. Administrators can manage devices from a central console, seamlessly deploying policies, apps, and updates.

Application Management

Intune allows administrators to control corporate applications used on managed and unmanaged devices. This includes app protection policies that can restrict data movement and enforce encryption.

Conditional Access

Intune integrates with Azure Active Directory to enforce conditional access policies. This ensures that only compliant devices can access corporate resources, adding a layer of cyber security.

Compliance Policies

Administrators can create compliance policies that devices must meet to access corporate data. Non-compliant devices can be blocked or restricted until they meet the required standards.

Remote Actions

Intune provides remote capabilities for lost or stolen devices, such as wiping, locking, and resetting, minimising the risk of data breaches.

Enhance Your Cyber Security Controls

Intune plays a crucial role in bolstering an organisation’s cyber security posture:

Threat Protection

Integration with Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection allows real-time monitoring and responding to threats, leveraging AI and machine learning to detect and mitigate risks.

Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

Policies can be enforced to prevent data leakage through unauthorised apps and devices. Intune can control which apps can access corporate data and apply restrictions like copy-paste and save-as operations.

Identity and Access Management

By integrating with Azure Active Directory, Intune helps manage user identities and control access to corporate resources based on the user’s role, device compliance, and location.


Intune ensures that device data is encrypted, protecting sensitive information in case of device loss or theft.

Regular Updates and Patching

Automated deployment of security updates and patches protects devices against the latest vulnerabilities.

Streamline Your Server Infrastructure Management

Intune, while primarily focused on endpoint management, can also complement the management of server infrastructure in the following ways:

Unified Management

Using Intune with Configuration Manager as part of the Microsoft Endpoint Manager suite allows for a unified approach to managing endpoints and server infrastructure, simplifying administrative tasks.

Policy Enforcement

Intune can help enforce compliance and security policies across servers, ensuring they meet organisational standards.

Inventory and Reporting

Intune provides detailed reports and inventory of managed devices and servers, offering insights into hardware, software, and compliance status.


Automation capabilities can streamline routine management tasks for server infrastructure, such as software deployment, patch management, and configuration enforcement.

Integration with Other Tools

Intune integrates seamlessly with other Microsoft services and third-party tools, enhancing overall IT infrastructure management and security.

By leveraging Intune, organisations can achieve a comprehensive, cohesive management strategy that spans devices, applications, and infrastructure, significantly enhancing security and operational efficiency.
