Unified Management for an At-Home Workforce
Microsoft has renamed and rebundled its endpoint management platforms under the title Endpoint Manager, which includes Intune for cloud-based management of remote devices and Configuration Manager for managing on-premises endpoints. Microsoft Endpoint Manager features a unified platform for protecting corporate information by managing local, mobile, and at-home endpoint devices.
Intune is a component of Microsoft's Endpoint Management family that also includes Microsoft Configuration Manager. Intune is a cloud service for managing and protecting mobile computers and applications. Remote endpoint computers can be user owned or company owned. Network administrators managing the enrolled endpoint computers of teleworkers can utilize Intune to provision and authenticate applications on devices, push patches and certificates, configure rules for permission to access data and networks, set passwords, create VPN tunnels, control how home-based workers share information, establish threat defense, ensure security compliance, and erase sensitive information from lost, stolen or deactivated devices. Microsoft Intune runs with Apple iOS, Google Android, Windows, and macOS/OS X computers. To learn about Microsoft Intune and to find out how Progent can assist you to use this platform to administer the endpoint devices of your at-home workforce, see Intune telecommuter device management experts.
