Microsoft Intune new wave hitting this week

Microsoft has come a long way in the last year.  They are poised to definitely take on other MDM and MAM vendors.  One of the latest changes was to break away from the Windows Intune in favor of the Microsoft Intune.  Because Intune can do more than just Windows (IOS, Android, etc) it is only natural

Some of the newest changes are listed here:
  • 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
