Intune Applications

Intune Applications

Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based service that focuses on mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM). Using Microsoft Intune, you can manage your organization’s devices -mobiles, laptops, tablets, Cloud PCs, and soon Azure Virtual Desktops. You can also configure policies to control various applications. For example, you can prevent emails from being sent to people outside your organization. Intune also allows your employees to use their personal devices for work. On personal devices, Intune secures your organization's data and isolates it from the employee's personal data.

Nerdio Manager supports Line-of-Business, Win32, and Microsoft Store app management capabilities.
