What Is Microsoft Intune?
Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based endpoint management solution. It sets up user access, decides who can access what, and keeps user devices up to date automatically. It empowers businesses to control user access to files and documents, as well as the devices used by the users. Intune is available with Microsoft 365, and although not as user-friendly as Word or PowerPoint, it’s a valuable tool. Although it may seem overwhelming to set up and use, the investment in Intune is worth the benefits. Let’s discuss working together if you need help moving forward.
