Pros
The most valuable feature is that you can manage users from one central location.The most valuable feature is the performance.Although we have not looked at the whole product and explored it completely, we find that all the authentication features that we are using now are valuable.The Cloud Identity is well advanced in terms of features, applications, and the components that it is offering.The main control page and the ability to manage all our users from a web-based portal are the most valuable aspects of the solution. That's particularly useful because we're a heterogeneous network.

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
In the next release, I would like to see integration with different systems, mainly wireless SIEMS and other analytical systems that we want to introduce.The pricing for this solution is a little bit higher than AWS and others, which is something that should be improved.To improve the product, the integration with third-party products could always be smoother.The interface could be improved by simplifying it further.The solution needs to better integrate with Mac's OS.

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.
