Unified Management for an At-Home Workforce
Microsoft has renamed and rebundled its endpoint management platforms under the name Endpoint Manager, which includes Intune for cloud-based management of remote devices and Configuration Manager for managing onsite endpoints. Endpoint Manager provides a unified solution for safeguarding corporate data by controlling local, mobile, and home-based endpoints.
Intune is part of Microsoft's Endpoint Management suite that also includes Configuration Manager. Intune is a cloud service for managing and securing mobile computers and software. Remote endpoint devices can be user owned or company owned. IT administrators managing the endpoint devices of telecommuters can utilize Intune to provision and validate apps on devices, push patches and certificates, set up rules for permission to access data and resources, manage passwords, establish VPN connections, determine how telecommuters share information, establish threat defense, ensure security compliance, and wipe sensitive data from lost, stolen or deactivated devices. Microsoft Intune runs with iOS, Google Android, Windows, and macOS/OS X computers.
