Enterprise Mobility + Security

Mobility management and security platforms that help protect and secure your organisation and empower your employees.

Let's talk - Intune

Intune is included in the Microsoft 365 Business premium license, but you can also buy it as an add-on to other Microsoft licenses.

We have been deploying Intune as part of the Enterprise Mobility + Security suite. Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based service that focuses on mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM). You control how your organisation’s devices are used, including mobile phones, tablets, and laptops.
Intune also allows people in your organisation to use their personal devices. On personal devices, Intune helps make sure your organisation's data stays protected and can isolate organisation data from personal data.
With Intune, you can:

- Choose to be 100% cloud with Intune, or be co-managed with Configuration Manager and Intune.
- Set rules and configure settings on personal and organisation-owned devices to access data and networks.
- Deploy and authenticate apps on devices on-premises and mobile.
- Protect your company information by controlling the way users access and share information.
- Be sure devices and apps are compliant with your security requirements.

Let's talk - Multi-factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication is a process in which users are prompted during the sign-in process for an additional form of identification, such as a code on their cellphone or a fingerprint scan.

If you only use a password to authenticate a user, it leaves an insecure vector for attack. If the password is weak or has been exposed elsewhere, an attacker could be using it to gain access. When you require a second form of authentication, security is increased because this additional factor isn't something that's easy for an attacker to obtain or duplicate.

Azure AD Multi-Factor Authentication works by requiring two or more of the following authentication methods:

Something you know, typically a password.
Something you have, such as a trusted device that's not easily duplicated, like a phone or hardware key.
Something you are - biometrics like a fingerprint or face scan.
Azure AD Multi-Factor Authentication can also further secure password reset. When users register themselves for Azure AD Multi-Factor Authentication, they can also register for self-service password reset in one step.

Let's talk - Mobile device management

Device management enables organisations to protect and secure their resources and data, and from different devices.

Using a device management provider, your organisation can make sure that only authorised people and devices get access to proprietary information. Similarly, device users can feel at ease accessing work data from their phone, because they know their device meets their organisation's security requirements. As an organisation, you might ask - What should we use to protect our resources?

The answer is Microsoft Intune. Intune offers mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM). Some key tasks of any MDM or MAM solution are to:

- Support a diverse mobile environment and manage iOS/iPadOS, Android, Windows, and macOS devices securely.
- Ensure organisational security compliance.
- Create policies that help keep your organisation data safe on organisation-owned and personal devices.
- Use a single, unified mobile solution to enforce these policies, and help manage devices, apps, users, and groups.
- Protect your company information by helping to control the way your workforce accesses and shares its data.
- Intune is included with Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365, and integrates with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). --- Azure AD helps control who has access, and what they have access to.
