Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the ability to assign a package to a user on a system If you have your software packages set up via SCCM. It automates the process, which is very convenient, especially since most of our people are remote. Additionally, the overall functionality is good."

"The conditional access policies that we set up are very useful.""I like that we can implement conditional access.""The initial setup is not overly complex or difficult.""The solution is easy to use.""For the price, the features included with Microsoft are appealing.""The central administration con dashboard is very easy to use and provides very good oversight on all that needs to be monitored.""The key benefit of Intune is its integration with the Microsoft ecosystem.""The performance of Microsoft Intune is good."

Cons
"Matrix42 Enterprise Mobility Management could improve the user interface, it is not very intuitive."

More Matrix42 Enterprise Mobility Management Cons →

"There needs to be more support for Mac operating systems.""It would be better if I could integrate it with my core group policy. I would like to have a group policy in my current environment, which has strict control, but those things are still missing. Although it has maximum compliance and security, it's not available on-premise.""They should make it easier to order it, however, that's generally true for everything from Microsoft.""The most important thing is reporting. They should improve their reporting. They should give a free hand to users. In SCCM, I can create my own reports. For example, in SCCM, I can create an inventory report for my PC or for all PCs, but in Intune, we don't have an option to create any report. Microsoft claims that Intune is a successor of SCCM, but SCCM is more powerful than Intune. So, they should develop Intune more and make it equivalent to SCCM. Then, their product will be great in the market.""Technical support is not that great.""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.""In the next release, I would like a feature to be able to properly lock down the device. For example, if an attacker or somebody steals the phone, you can be sure that the pin cannot be broken.""Reporting could be improved. It needs to be more expensive and robust."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I am not sure the price of this solution but I would imagine it is fairly expensive because of the complexity, you would not use it in a small company."
  • More Matrix42 Enterprise Mobility Management 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."
