Mobile Application Management with Intune. 

Containers may be good for sandboxing data, but why should protecting corporate data require that your users sacrifice a great user experience? With Intune and System Center Configuration Manager, you can enable your users to use the apps that they need to be productive, while maintaining protection of data on the device. Microsoft provides a layered approach to data protection that gives IT pros control over data at the device level, at the app level, and on the data itself. This control can be built directly into the apps people are familiar with and enables IT pros to define not only how each of these apps will interact with data, but also how they will interact with each other.

Mobile Device Management for Office 365

Mobile Devices are the first and only connected device for a billion people, and there no question that workplaces are evolving to become more focused on mobile computing. As businesses adopt a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) approach to mobile devices, it is critical for them to keep corporate data secure on personal devices. Traditional Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions used for this purpose have a one-size fits all approach with a non-intuitive restricted application that challenges users. Come and explore our new Office 365 MDM solution we will soon be releasing that addresses these concerns and more.
