"We are using the mobile feature, and we are also using MDM to lock the devices, to push restrictions, et cetera""The technical support of Microsoft Intune is good.""The solution is easy to use and it has good performance.""I would say the biggest benefit is the single-pane view. There's no jumping around multiple UI's to do your overall management.""The solution is easy to use, simple to understand for those new to using it, and combined with the other Microsoft products it makes for an overall good package.""The solution is easy to use.""The dashboards, the security, and the customization capabilities work very well for us.""It allows our clients to have the confidence to centrally manage policies for security. It helps them in securing the organization from a technology aspect."

Cons
"The dashboards could be improved.""As a partner, we consider 42Gears to be a unified endpoint management (UEM) solution. So, we should be able to manage users with this particular solution. This is something that is currently not there. It is probably an area for improvement for 42Gears."

More 42Gears SureMDM Cons →

"Technical support is not that great.""The solution could improve its flexibility.""I expect Microsoft Intune to have more features in the cloud because there are two major functionalities that we need to be added. This is software metering and license management. These functionalities, for now, must be on-premise. For this purpose, we have set up a SQL Server and I hope that in near future this option will be in the cloud in Microsoft Intune.""The pricing can be expensive if you are not combining it with other products.""Reporting and troubleshooting for the application deployment could be better. It's very difficult to understand.""The reporting needs to be a bit more interactive.""It just doesn't handle software updates well at all by itself. You need to be a scripting wizard to make those happen properly, or you use third-party tools. The Windows feature updates are very difficult to implement. I would like to see a proprietary built-in remote control tool. I know that they have Team Viewer integrated, but it is not seamless. It would be nice if they had a seamless remote desktop capability directly from the Intune console.""The solution could improve by having better integration with Apple."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I am satisfied with the price of this solution."
  • "Their pricing structure is very good against the competition. Pricing is definitely not a challenge here."
  • More 42Gears SureMDM Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "For Microsoft 365 E5 clients, cost is not an issue as this product is one of the benefits."
  • "The price of Intune is included with the license for Office 365, so we don't have to pay anything extra for it."
  • "The pricing for Microsoft Intune is reasonable. Our clients are satisfied."
  • "The price of Intune is often included as part of a bundle with other Microsoft licenses, which makes it somewhat cheaper."
  • "Licensing depends on how you are providing support to your enterprise, whether it's device-based or user-based."
  • "We work with the subscription rather than a server license. I think it's economical this way because we don't have to have a server license for that, and I think that works in our favor."
  • "Pricing can be improved."
  • "The price could be better."

    Overview

    SureMDM is an intuitive and powerful enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution for Android, iOS, and Windows platforms. You can secure, monitor and manage company owned devices for dedicated use as well as employee owned devices used to access company data (BYOD). SureMDM incorporates all aspects of EMM such as Mobile Application Management, Mobile Device Management and Mobile Content Management.

    Microsoft Intune is a comprehensive cloud-based service that allows you to remotely manage mobile devices and mobile applications without worrying about the security of your organization’s data. Device and app management can be used on company-owned devices as well as personal devices.

    In an increasingly mobile workforce, Microsoft Intune keeps your sensitive data safe while on the move. Microsoft Intune makes it possible for your team members to work anywhere using their mobile devices. Microsoft Intune provides both the flexibility and the control needed for securing all your data on the cloud, no matter where the device with the data is located.

    With Microsoft Intune Device Management you can:

    • Ensure devices and apps are compliant with your security requirements.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Microsoft Intune stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its ability to secure all devices under its management and the flexibility that the solution offers its users.

    A computing services manager notes, "Its security is most valuable. It gives us a way to secure devices, not only those that are steady. We do have a few tablets and other devices, and it is a way for us to secure these devices and manage them. We know they're out there and what's their status. We can manage their life cycle and verify that they're updated properly."

    The head of IT engineering at a financial services company writes, "The one feature we find most useful is the Mobile Application Manager. There are two types: we have the complete MDM and the Mobile Application Manager (MAM). We don't give our users phones, it is their own personal phone, and we need to allow them to have access to the company details on their phone. We need to create a balance between their own personal data and the company data. We deploy the Mobile Application Manager for them so that we won't be able to interfere with their own personal data."
