Intune applications in NMM


Applies to: Nerdio Manager for MSP (NMM) v2.0.1+


Overview

Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based service that focuses on mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM). Using Microsoft Intune apps you can control 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 your personal data.

Let us understand how we have integrated Intune apps in the NMM portal.

Login to NMM portal and log into your account. From the main menu, navigate to Settings->Integration page as shown below:
