Microsoft Intune Valuable Features

I guess in our company we are using most of the features in Intune. What we use it for is to control the endpoints. We publish some selected applications and the end-users are only able to download and install those applications. They are not allowed to install or use any other applications other than what we provide. We do compliance checking. We run assessments periodically on the endpoints using Intune, and Intune generates reports. Sometimes we need those reports to qualify for our ISO certifications. It is a similar thing for customers as well. There is a different requirement but it is a similar idea. For example, if we are engaged with an oil and gas company, they have back-office stations and point-of-sale solutions. In this case, those are Windows systems. What they used to do is they had to manage those solutions manually. They had a contract with some third party. The third-party would go on the sites if there was an issue or something, and maintenance and delivery were all manual. They did not have any EMS (Endpoint Management Solution) at all. The only thing they had was something called a radiant configuration management server. That was only used for configuration purposes, not for maintenance or other troubleshooting. The concern and the requirement over delivery was raised because of COVID. No one was able to go to the sites to do the troubleshooting, maintenance, and delivery. The only solution that they had was to engage with us to deploy these solutions on their endpoints. They did not all go with Intune, some went with Workspace One, which is also a UEM solution. So they wanted us to deploy UEM on AWS public cloud, then connect it, wire their MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) network to the end-point spots and box devices in order to manage them.

Patching for Windows in operating systems is great. Most organizations are going remote now due to this pandemic, so patching is one of the most feasible solutions we can think of — patching end-user devices. Application deployment and keeping the devices secure no matter where they are, by having this cloud solution — that has been great. Deploying the security policies to the devices. View full review »

Its overall integration into Microsoft 365 is great. I would say the biggest benefit is the single-pane view. There's no jumping around multiple UI's to do your overall management. Linkage to a single pane is probably the best benefit. I'm looking at it in comparison to other EMMs and there are better EMMs out there. It's still for me at an MBM stage, as it's addressing other areas that make up EMM, however, if you put it in comparison to others, for instance, the overall experience is better. We get OL and DM and we get in the mobile threat detection. We get in a lot of other things into that EMM. View full review »

The most important thing for me is the autopilot feature. Other products have this capability but they have to first integrate with Azure. Because Intune is a Microsoft product, you don't have to do anything explicitly to get this feature working properly. View full review »

I like how Microsoft Intune lets me lock down the email profile and make it accessible only on certain devices. I also like how one user license allows up to five devices. View full review »

Right now, pushing out software and policies is the solution's most valuable aspect. The pricing and support are great. The dashboards, the security, and the customization capabilities work very well for us. Everything is so tightly integrated with the on-premise solution. View full review »

The most valuable aspect of the product when it is in production is the basic thing it was made to do. We want to be able to allow access to various applications remotely which we can not otherwise do with remote workers. View full review »

The biggest thing for us is enforcing logins only from devices that are managed by Intune. We also use it for enforcing DLP and all of the other security policies that you need for compliance in order to do work for major corporations. It integrates well with the Microsoft environment. Once it's deployed, it's set and forget. View full review »

Lately I've been working on the Remote Wipe and Autopilot. Autopilot is one of the best features because we can use it during remote migration. It especially helps in this pandemic situation where we don't need any end-user computing engineer support. If someone wants to remix a machine, we can initiate it remotely. View full review »
