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

Pros
"If the product works, remote access will be a benefit. To this point we have not had reason to have confidence in achieving that access.""The most important thing for me is the autopilot feature.""The dashboards, the security, and the customization capabilities work very well for us.""We have not experienced any bugs or glitches with this solution.""This product offers an alternative solution to other UEM (Unified Endpoint Management) solutions.""Maturity makes it a stable product.""The most valuable feature is the UEM capabilities.""The most valuable feature for us is the security, including risk analysis and patch management."

"The initial setup is very straightforward.""It's very stable. Sometimes after installing the boxes, we leave them for one or two years. We would just touch the box in the case of the customer needing new requirements or changes to the setup.""The features I find most valuable is WildFire, user integration, and the basic technology features.""The most valuable feature is the zero-trust part of this solution.""The most valuable feature is the ability to join your network and provide access through the VPN.""It's great that we can make sure a machine meets the minimum requirements before users are allowed to log in.""The users can securely access any cloud data centers or cloud platforms. In terms of the features, it has all the features that Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewall has. It is also very stable and scalable.""The scalability of the solution is excellent."

Cons
"The difficulty of the the roll out is surprisingly difficult considering this product is supposed to be an integrated part of the 365 suite.""I would like to see the ability to deploy custom packages as a Windows 64-bit package, as opposed to the Windows 32-bit, which is the only one available now.""It would be helpful if there was proactive remediation.""There are items that require improvements. One is the controls from iOS.""The reporting needs to be a bit more interactive.""There is no catalog for mobile access management (MAM) security.""The configuration could be better by consolidating options and making it simpler.""There's quite a lot of development that they can do within their Intune dashboard. I think there are too many lines hyperlinked to move you around. Others, in contrast, give you a simple dashboard and an intuitive administrative walkthrough."

More Microsoft Intune Cons »

"Dependencies of applications sometimes is a bit confusing.""Their next release should provide solutions for the mobile environment.""I would like to see better pricing and an easier logging process. Also, if there was a way to log a global log, everything could go onto the system. It would be better if there was a third log, otherwise one would have to do everything manually.""The cloud setup is straightforward, and the onboarding process is much better, but the on-premises initial setup is slightly complex.""Better integration with the MDM solution would be useful.""The solution needs to be more compatible with other solutions. This is specifically a problem for us when it comes to healthcare applications. They have proprietary connection types and things of that nature that make compatibility a challenge sometimes.""When it comes to the VPN, it uses the global protect VPN functionality to connect remotely, but it has a feature limitation for assigning multiple IP sub-links to different user groups. It would be much better if we are able to assign the current IP blocks for the sub-links based on the user groups.""There is some particular traffic that the security team wants to filter out and apply their own policies and they cannot."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"For Microsoft 365 E5 clients, cost is not an issue as this product is one of the benefits.""The price of Intune is included with the license for Office 365, so we don't have to pay anything extra for it.""The pricing for Microsoft Intune is reasonable. Our clients are satisfied.""The price of Intune is often included as part of a bundle with other Microsoft licenses, which makes it somewhat cheaper.""Licensing depends on how you are providing support to your enterprise, whether it's device-based or user-based.""We work with the subscription rather than a server license. I think it's economical this way because we don't have to have a server license for that, and I think that works in our favor.""Pricing can be improved.""The price could be better."

More Microsoft Intune Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licensing cost is about 18,000 euros.""This is not an expensive product and everything is included with one license.""Prisma Access is a little bit expensive.""The solution requires a license and the technical support has extra costs. The licensing model could improve.""The price has been good for the ROI during these difficult times for the cruise industry. There are no hidden costs; what the product offers is what you get."
