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

Pros
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.

The solution is very stable.I find the features that are most valuable are the policies that help us identify the vulnerabilities. These policies are then used for scanning instabilities and then identifying the particular vulnerabilities.Tenable Nessus streamlines the process of scanning for our organization.We looked at Tenable, Qualys and Rapid7. We found Tenable was the best of all three.It provides multiple recommendations towards the remedy of vulnerabilities.It allows me to prioritize efforts and utilize effective technical resources.

Cons
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.

I would like to see an improvement in the ranking of high, medium and low vulnerability.We have had some false positives in the past, which we hope can improve in the future.This is still a maturing product. Tenable is only a scanner for one ability, while other solutions like Rapid7 have more tools for verification. We still have to manually verify to see if the vulnerability is a false positive or not.From my point of view the solution basically is not for the big enterprise.They should improve the I/O reporting and the customized spreadsheet export feature.Multiple steps to create an actionable plan will be a great addition to Nessus.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
