If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Microsoft Intune, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
From my experience if the requirement is to lock down the Android devices through Intune, then I should advise to look at the different policies that are available for Intune before doing the implementation. Because, if the policies do not meet the requirements of the organization to lock down the devices or to apply the policies on the devices, then it does not make any sense. So, for Android devices in particular, if you are implementing Intune then you should first look at the policies that are available in Intunes and then try to evaluate and do proof of concept.
We received Intune with a bundle of Microsoft products.
I would advise other colleagues to use Microsoft Intune.
My advice would hinge on what your strategy is. It comes down to: If you're using Citrix then Citrix ZenMobile makes more sense. But if you've got a Microsoft strategy and you're looking at Microsoft security and you're looking at buying into the Microsoft cloud strategy, then Windows Intune is a very viable solution. For me, the most important criteria when selecting a vendor depend on what is it I'm trying to achieve. I always want to check: * where it ranks in industry reviews * for the features that I'm looking for * pricing. For example, I may have a product that's brilliant and is amazing and does 120 things, but costs $10 per month; if I only need two of those features and I've got another product that has only those two features and it only costs $2 per month, I'd rather go for that. I would rate Intune at about a nine out of 10 because it has come a long way, it is continuing to be developed, and I can see it as part of Microsoft's wider vision. It's not 100 percent there but it's getting there. The fact that you can now plug Intune into third-party products is fantastic.
