Enterprise Mobility + Security


ICYMI earlier this week, the Intune team has rolled out some really impressive new capabilities to Intune standalone.

We announced these were coming back at TechEd Europe, and now they are ready to go.

The new Intune standalone features include:

  • Enhanced user interface for Intune administration console
  • Ability to restrict access to Exchange on-premises email based upon device enrollment
  • Bulk enrollment of devices using a single service account
  • Lockdown of Supervised iOS devices and devices using Samsung KNOX with Kiosk mode
  • Targeting of policies and apps by device groups
  • Ability to report on and allow or block a specific set of applications
  • Enforcement of application install or uninstall
  • Deployment of certificates, email, VPN and WiFi profiles
  • Ability to push free store apps to iOS devices
  • More convenient access to internal corporate resources using per-app VPN configurations for iOS devices
  • Remote pin reset for Windows Phone 8.1 devices
  • Multi-factor authentication at enrollment for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices
  • Ability to restrict administrator access to a specific set of user and device groups
  • Updated Company Portal apps to support customizable terms and conditions

Wow!

Media coverage has already been positive; you can read overviews at eWeek and Redmond Magazine.

Also: For those of you branding experts out there, you’ll notice that all references to Windows Intune have now been updated to Microsoft Intune. Fancy! You can read more about the rebrand on the Intune Blog.

We are already putting the finishing touches on the next set up capabilities (e.g. containers and integration with the Office apps). These features are just weeks away. The Intune Blog will have all the details when the time comes.
