We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
It keeps things secure, it can remotely wipe the container and it's fairly easy to use.We were able to utilize Android for Work-Premium in BlackBerry Android devices.We can access emails within the active sync.It has a good ease of use, and its intuitive.It allows me to be able to access my email when I do not necessarily have my computer with me. I can also access my calendar when I am on public transport or outside of the office.There is very high flexibility for different setups of single users, so it can give a single use many different device types with different enrollment types.The functionality with UEM and BlackBerry Works, the shared calendar, is a massive improvement for us.The containerization of the BlackBerry Dynamics is the most important thing for us. It allows us to keep personal and corporate data separate on a personal device. It allows us to wipe the corporate data while leaving all the personal data in place.

It helps implement conditional access policies to restrict mobile users from accessing potentially dangerous emails.The aspects I find most valuable are the managing the data and applications. I can also restrict the users to install any applications. I can also wipe the data if the phone was missplaced or stolen. These are the basics for me.It is a very helpful solution.We have a BYOD policy, and this solution helps us manage our devices.It is a helpful tool to manage BYOD policies.In terms of technical support, you will get an immediate response.It's really easy to access....Intune itself integrates with that entire Microsoft ecosystem. As an individual product itself, it's okay. It holds up. But when you start saying "I've bought this as part of a wider solution, as a company we are going Microsoft throughout," then it makes more sense to have Microsoft Intune... so you have that single dashboard.

Cons
I'd like there to be more in the core product rather than having to buy additional products. For example, being able to trace your devices after an emergency is an additional product you have to buy to do that properly.It's too difficult to manage ourselves. We have to get a third-party in to do that. The fact that it breaks on some end-users' devices is also a concern and just the frequency and complexity of upgrades is not ideal.Second level support needs to have strong knowledge of the product.The console needs improvement. It does not provide all the information that we are looking for as far as who has installed a certain product.As far as being able to remotely wipe a device, or remove it from the console, this is not simple to do. It is not a one-click motion, as it requires several steps.Some users have complained that some features cannot be done through the BlackBerry Access Hub.The newest features sometimes pop in very slowly.I would like to see better integration with our AD. Instead of having to use Active Directory groups, we'd like to use Active Directory attributes instead. There is a lot of overhead in managing. Whereas, if we could key on something tied to HR, or some other feed indicating who they are or what role they have, and manage them that way, that would be much preferable than having to manage people with Active Directory groups. Because, if people move roles, then we have to make sure that we move them from one Active Directory group to another, which is hands-on, a lot of overhead.

Intune should be much more granular in terms of supporting more Android cellular devices.I think there should be a better tracking of the cell phones used on the Intune.I think that there is room for improvement with the reporting. If this is done, it will be a better product.There are a few security features that are not available in Microsoft Intune, when compared to other products.There are a couple of issues with stability.I would like to see micro VPN. I like the way that some of the other providers have done something similar where, as you open that app on an end-point device, it creates a micro VPN straight into your device, which is quite a nice little feature. Also, Microsoft Intune relies heavily on its fellow products in the suite. It would be nice if Microsoft Intune could stand on its own two feet.It needs incorporation of Knox, ZeroTouch, etc.It needs certificate provisioning for S/MIME purposes.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Sometimes, it is very hard to get an overview because there are so many different suites to find out what is the right thing for new customers.In my opinion, we're paying an awful lot for what we get, compared to other vendors. I don't deal with the pricing, but it does seem to be a bit pricey for the things that we get, especially, when you compare them to other vendors, such as VMware, Citrix, who have all bought up other players in this space. VMware offers AirWatch free as part of their packages.With the new licensing model, there seems to be a significant increase in cost, which makes it difficult to push forward and talk with the business.

The product is offered as part of a Microsoft standard bundle. The pricing can be competitive to Airwatch, and Maas360.I have no comment on pricing of the solution.The purchase of the product was handled by someone else.Microsoft Intune is a cost effective choice. It is less expensive than other products on the market.There is a cost benefit of using Microsoft Intune because of the packaging with other Microsoft products.Consider the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite rather than choosing specific sub-components, e.g. only Microsoft Intune.
