EMS - Microsoft Intune : Basic Overview with Prerequisites - Part 1

Hello Everyone,

It's been long time I couldn't write something good for You but now I am back again :)

So, This post is about another component of EMS, known as Microsoft Intune (MDM and MAM solutions).

What is Microsoft Intune? 

In very simple term, This is a solution which helps organisation users to be more productive with completely securing organisation data and thereby providing multi-identity (segregating Personal and Official Data like mails, files etc) in all platform devices. 

This is the concept of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) where company can secure official data by using Multi-identity functionality of Intune.

Not only Mobile Devices, This can also manage PCs as mobile devices. You can deploy and manage apps thereby protecting data to be shared with any other apps or location with policies like blocking copy/cut/paste or save-as options.

Intune is a part of other components as well like SCCM, Office 365 and EMS itself. You can use it as stand-alone product or with either of subscription accounts.

Let's start with understanding it's requirements, supported platforms and other features in details.

Understanding Pre-requisities:

Starting Process for Intune:

If You are not using Office 365 subscription account or don't have an enterprise agreement then Sign-Up for free trial here! This will be valid for 30 Days.
