Integrates well with Microsoft tools and secures our devices
Microsoft Defender offers a built-in Intune dashboard that simplifies our workflow. While reviewing security information in Defender, we can easily see non-compliant devices flagged by Intune, eliminating the need to switch between applications. The Intune user experience has become significantly easier. While in the past we required detailed instructions for app installation, recent versions of the Intune app guide users through the process, eliminating the prior challenge of users struggling with installation. Intune's biggest benefit is its seamless integration with existing Microsoft products in our organization. Since we're already a Microsoft shop, Intune leverages our familiar environment for a straightforward implementation, offering centralized control for our SOC clients. We likely saw the advantages quickly, as with other Microsoft products. Microsoft Intune effectively secures our BYOD program. If we have employees who need to work from home for some time, we make sure to install Intune on their laptops first. Microsoft Intune has improved our IT team's efficiency by allowing a Bring-Your-Own-Device policy and facilitating work-from-home options.

We use Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager for application deployment and patching. We run the gamut, and we use it for quite a bit To do what we are doing with the configurations manager manually would be impossible. We have over 100,000 systems, and it simplifies a lot of what we are…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The pricing for Intune and the competitor products are all within the same range, there is no true advantage when it comes to cost."
"We have the business premium licenses for the solution."
"I liked the tool's pricing until P2 came into effect. I am unsure about the current value versus the cost of the new licensing model."
"The purchase of the product was handled by someone else."
"It's reasonable. They're not giving it away, but it's reasonable."
"The pricing for Microsoft Intune is reasonable. Our clients are satisfied."
"Our enterprise agreement includes Microsoft Intune at no additional cost."
"The price of Intune is included with the license for Office 365, so we don't have to pay anything extra for it."
Information not available
"The price model is different for every client."
"Pricing and licensing are a downside of SCCM. It's expensive. I'd have to confirm this, but I think they changed the licensing to core-based instead of socket-based. It's not cheap, because you have to buy the software, you have to buy SQL. Another thing we learned from talking to Microsoft is that they provide you a license for SQL if you run it on the same box as the primary server. If you run it outside that box, you have to buy SQL. Microsoft does recommend you running it on the same box because of performance. But then, in order to run SQL, SCCM, and everything on the same box, you better have some resources. It's an expensive solution. There's no doubt about it."
"The price of Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager is expensive."
"There is not a license needed to use the solution."
"Its price is okay because it is part of our licensing."
"Pricing and licensing are horrible. You have to not look at dollar value to use SCCM. It's super-duper expensive but it works. The acquisition cost is expensive, it's labor-intensive. But it works."
"The solution operates on a licensing model that can be expensive."
"We use the tool's free license. It is expensive."
