Today's mobile device management (MDM) strategies deal with variety of phones and tables (iOS, Android, Windows). Whether users are bringing their own devices (BYOD) into management to get company mail and data or you're distributing company-owned devices (COD), the first step is to set up device enrollment. You can also manage computers either with the thin (MDM) client or the Intune client.
To enable productivity, you need to prepare both devices and apps. In configure and manage devices, you’ll find end-to-end guidance for device management. This section shows you how to enable employees to access company resources from both company-owned and personal devices, configure device-specific settings, and how to manage PCs with Intune.
When you are ready to deliver productivity apps to employees, the deploy and manage apps section will guide you through app delivery and management.
The protect company resources section will guide you through the options you can take to establish the data and access security your business requires. Here you’ll find guidance to protect data in email and apps and to increase security with multi-factor authentication.
When devices get lost or stolen, when employees move on to other jobs, or when hardware needs to be replaced, you need to be able to remove apps and data from devices, retire devices, or revoke access. These scenarios are laid out in retire data and devices from management.
You may find after you've planned and deployed Intune, that you're encountering problems with your configuration. It's possible that your end users are experiencing difficulties with their devices. These troubleshooting resources can help you find out what could be causing the problem so that you can resolve it.
To effectively manage your users and devices often involves using more than one product or service. In real-world solutions you'll find guidance to help you understand how these different products and services can work together.
