Microsoft Intune Mobile Application Management now a complete solution

EMS Landing page

This is another bumper month of new releases for Microsoft Intune. Some Apps have been released already and a long list of Intune features will be released this week. You can find the full list on the Microsoft Intune blog. 

For me the most exciting news is the release of the Intune Managed Browser App for iOS devices. This has been pending approval in the Apple Store for several months and has been eagerly anticipated. I believe that this now completes the Intune Mobile Application Management solution for Android and iOS (although I'm sure that many further enhancements will be made in the future).

Currently the following Managed Apps are available for the Android and iOS platforms. These Apps operate in a "container" on the device to prevent corporate data leakage. You can create policies so that data can only be shared between Managed Apps.

  1. Unfortunately Outlook for iOS isn't containerised just yet.

    1. That's true. I had actually referred to a number of additional apps that weren't "Intune Managed Apps". I didn't make that clear but I've done so now. Thanks. There should be some exciting developments for Outlook for iOS soon.
