Over the past few weeks, we’ve spent a lot of time talking about the importance of managing devices and applications. Last week, the Microsoft Intune team announced the release of some great new features available on Intune standalone (cloud only) to help you do just that.
- Ability to restrict access to Exchange Online email based upon device enrollment and compliance policies
- Management of Office mobile apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) for iOS devices, including ability to restrict actions such as copy, cut, and paste outside of the managed app ecosystem (Android versions coming soon)
- Ability to extend application protection to existing line-of-business apps using the Intune App Wrapping Tool for iOS
- Managed Browser app for Android devices that controls actions that users can perform, including allow/deny access to specific websites. Managed Browser app for iOS devices currently pending store approval
- PDF Viewer, AV Player, and Image Viewer apps for Android devices that help users securely view corporate content
- Bulk enrollment of iOS devices using Apple Configurator
- Ability to create configuration files using Apple Configurator and import these files into Intune to set custom iOS policies
- Lockdown of Windows Phone 8.1 devices with Assigned Access mode using OMA-URI settings
- Ability to set additional policies on Windows Phone 8.1 devices using OMA-URI settings
As a part of these updates, there are also a new series of documentation articles on TechNet. Check out the What’s new with Microsoft Intune page to learn more about each of these features.
