Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is the policy CSPs.""The ability to block and erase remote devices is valuable to us, especially when those devices are lost.""We have found the solution is capable of scaling.""It's easy to manage and easy to configure.""It is a stable solution.""Intune can wipe devices. For example, if a disgruntled employee wants to leak the data on their company phone, Intune can terminate their access and wipe the entire device with a click.""Stable product that's easy to set up compared to other MDM products.""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."

More Microsoft Intune Pros →

"The best thing about Purview is that it's easy to integrate with our day-to-day environment. We have Active Directory, and Word and Excel. Using a third-party vendor and trying to integrate with our existing environment would be much more challenging."

More Microsoft Purview Insider Risk Management Pros →

"It should be simplified. I've worked with many different mobile device management solutions, and Intune is one of the more complex ones. It could be more simplified, and some of it is related to the wording that is being used, such as a configuration profile versus a policy. They really should have had different names to make it less confusing.""The difficulty of the the roll out is surprisingly difficult considering this product is supposed to be an integrated part of the 365 suite.""Some enrollment features could be improved.""The biggest problem we ever have is when something goes out of date after 30 days when nobody has logged into it. We do have a problem trying to get those back online. We've been working with Microsoft to resolve that problem, but that's been the only issue that we've had in the last few years.""When somebody has a customized application or their own company's application, we cannot deploy that application.""The add-ons must be integrated into the solution.""We would like to see support for Chrome and/or devices for Chromebooks.""The solution could improve by having better integration with Apple."

"For certain things, you need to install an agent. I understand it's for integrity, but if there could be a clientless solution for certain aspects, it would make life easier."

    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."

    Microsoft Purview Insider Risk Management utilizes more than 100 ready-to-use indicators and machine learning models to effectively detect critical security risks originating from insiders, including IP theft, data leakage, and security violations. The solution enables organizations to expedite risk mitigation through enriched investigation tools and Adaptive Protection, which automatically enforces protection controls. Built with privacy by design, users are pseudonymized by default, and role-based access controls and audit logs are in place to help ensure user-level privacy.
