Microsoft Intune is Microsoft’s answer to mobile device management. It’s a cloud-based business and enterprise mobility management tool designed to help businesses manage mobile devices.
Microsoft Intune Core Summary
Microsoft Intune is designed to address several business issues related to work mobility. It creates a secure link between an employee’s mobile device, and your corporate data. It does this by protecting email and data (including Office 365 mail and data), so that mobile devices can safely access them.
Microsoft Intune also assists you as an organisation to issue business-owned phones, or offer a ‘bring your own device’ policy to your employees. This is accomplished using protocols or APIs within mobile operating systems to execute tasks, like enrolling devices. Enrolment allows you to maintain a catalogue of devices that are able to access business services and data. These tasks can also configure mobile devices (perhaps restricting access to certain mobile functions), providing certificates and WiFi or VPN profiles.
Microsoft Intune can be purchased as a stand-alone monthly subscription, or as part of Microsoft EMS.
Microsoft Intune has many benefits to serve you and your business, most especially in this era of ‘bring your own device’. When considering which mobile device management service to use, consider the following key benefits of Microsoft Intune:

App protection policies are rules that ensure your organisation’s data remains safe or contained within a managed app.
A policy can be a rule that is only enforced when the user attempts to access or move secure data, or a set of actions that are restricted while a user is within that app. Apps can be protected with MAM if they have been integrated with the Intune App SDK (software development kit), or wrapped by the Intune w
