When it comes to Mobile Device Management (MDM), or Mobile Application Management (MAM) there are options every way you turn. It seems that every major company in the cloud industry has their own offering. It can get very confusing to determine what is different between each product and how to choose the right one for an organization. Specifically, what makes Microsoft’s Intune stand out amid the sea of mobile device management offerings?
In a bring your own device (BYOD) environment it is crucial to be as least intrusive as possible. No employee wants there to be the possibility that their personal device will be wiped, and with Microsoft Intune’s integration with the Microsoft suite of products, this is able to be done. Unlike with other MDM solutions, Intune protects data at the app level instead of across the whole device.
When deploying a mobile device management solution, it is imperative that security be an important piece of the platform. With Intune, you are getting the same enterprise grade security that you see across the Microsoft platform.
Mobile App Management (MAM) can provision and control access to internally developed and commercially available mobile apps used in business settings on both company-provided and ‘bring your own’ smartphones and tablet computers.
If your organization is already invested in Office 365 then look no further than Microsoft Intune for mobile device management. Although there are lots of various products out on the market for MDM, no one knows how to build integration around the Microsoft suite better than Microsoft themselves and it shows with the seamless integration of Intune with platforms such as Azure and the Office 365 suite.
