Microsoft details improvements coming to Intune mobility management service

Microsoft Intune

Microsoft today announced the upcoming improvements for Intune, its a cloud-based enterprise mobility management (EMM) service. Intune integrates closely with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) for identity and access control, and Azure Rights Management (Azure RMS) for data protection. Microsoft today announced that they are expanding conditional access capabilities to mobile applications and Windows PCs:

  • Conditional access for mobile apps
    This update allows you to restrict access to Exchange Online from only apps that are enabled with Intune’s mobile application protection policies, such as Outlook. If you’ve been looking for a way to block access to Exchange Online from built-in mail clients or other apps, look no further.
  • Conditional access for Windows PCs
    You can now create conditional access policies through the Intune admin console to block Windows PCs from accessing Exchange Online and SharePoint Online. You can also create conditional access policies to block access to Office desktop and universal applications.

Microsoft today announce that all their Intune SDK tools have been updated to support MAM without enrollment scenarios. Developers of all sizes can download the Intune App SDK, App Wrapping Tool, Cordova plugin, and Xamarin component here on Github. With this SDK, developers can incorporate Intune’s mobile application protection controls into their standard development process. Microsoft also announced the General Availability of Android for Work support.
