Today we are announcing that in its next major update, coming later this year, Windows Intune will be renamed to Microsoft Intune.
This change reflects Microsoft’s ongoing strategy for Intune as a cloud-based mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) solution. The “Microsoft Intune” name more accurately represents Intune’s capabilities, supporting both iOS and Android platforms, in addition to Windows. It is also in alignment with our commitment to embrace the new dynamics of the workplace, and increase employee productivity by enabling them to work wherever and whenever they want on any device, while helping IT keep corporate information secure.
Intune is included in the Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) which is Microsoft’s comprehensive and cost-effective solution for addressing consumerization of IT, BYOD, and SaaS challenges. The suite also includes Azure Active Directory Premium and Azure Rights Management.
