Control Access to SharePoint Online/OneDrive from unmanaged devices

In a mobile-first cloud first world the need of accessing corporate resources on unmanaged devices is rising. This is the cutting edge of managing your corporate data (keeping it safe) and give your users the freedom to be productive on any device.

With Conditional Access we can control access to corporate data (such as Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Yammer, Delve, Teams, etc.) based on a device (health) status such as being managed or complaint. These scenarios (conditions) are based on devices being managed by your company (MDM managed). With the introduction of Session Controls, organizations are enabled to grant limited access to corporate resources without losing control on unmanaged devices.

Microsoft rebrands Windows Intune to Microsoft Intune

Microsoft Intune

Today Microsoft announced they are renaming their mobile device cloud service Windows Intune to Microsoft Intune. Reason in mine opinion Microsoft is sorting to great new features and capabilities like enterprise bulk enrollement, conditional access and extended data leak protection (DLP) which will be expected later this year (Q4).

This change reflects Microsoft’s ongoing strategy for Intune as a cloud-based mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) solution.  The “Microsoft Intune” name more accurately represents Intune’s capabilities, supporting both iOS and Android platforms, in addition to Windows. It is also in alignment with our commitment to embrace the new dynamics of the workplace, and increase employee productivity by enabling them to work wherever and whenever they want on any device, while helping IT keep corporate information secure.

Intune is included in the Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) which is Microsoft’s comprehensive and cost-effective solution for addressing consumerization of IT, BYOD, and SaaS challenges. The suite also includes Azure Active Directory Premium and Azure Rights Management (RMS).
