We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It's not working perfectly, but Microsoft's Autopilot offers great visibility into automated deployment solutions.""Stable product that's easy to set up compared to other MDM products.""We already use a lot of Microsoft products in our company, and therefore, it made sense to also use this product.""I like that it's very good and very simple. I found that we just needed to have a proper subscription for an Intune tenant, and from the subscription, if we have the right role assigned, like the global admin role or the owner role, we can use Microsoft cloud resources. With the help of that, we can do many things like setting up Microsoft Intune in the cloud to create our virtual machines. All these can be done, and the steps are very simple. I really liked it. I like features like Windows Auto-Enrollment. I like it very much because whenever you supply it to the end-user, it will be ready to use immediately. The end-user only needs to provide the user credentials, and then they are good to go. I also really like Cloud PC, which was recently launched on Azure.""The biggest thing for us is enforcing logins only from devices that are managed by Intune.""Great for software update needs, operating system version updates, and security policy enforcement.""Technical support, in general, has been quite helpful.""Users can make screenshots, and devices only need the minimal version of iOS."

"The solution has very good documentation.""Cloud-based VMware Workspace ONE is very good. It is easy to deploy and manage. Maintenance is also quite simple.""The most valuable feature is the security policies.""The most valuable feature of the solution is that it enables us to remotely manage the devices, which is its purpose, and to push applications to the mobile devices from the portal.""We've found the solution to be easy to use.""The feature with the highest rating for me is its employee management. I can also praise how versatile it is in terms of operating systems. It has good support for multiple operating systems and can easily manage them all. Not just that, but it can also support any kind of tool that can be run on all these operating systems.""The most valuable feature is the interface with SCAP, which is the Security Content Automation Protocol.""Remote management is most valuable. It allows you to manage multiple types of devices. It is not just limited to laptops or desktops. You can also manage IoT devices. If a device is lost or stolen, you can easily take control of the device without letting any information get leaked."

Cons
"There are items that require improvements. One is the controls from iOS.""The installation is very easy. However, to be able to configure it you will need special knowledge, such as training or self-studies to have a proper level of security. There are many settings one has to understand before being able to implement Microsoft Intune.""The configuration could be better by consolidating options and making it simpler.""More integration with monitoring tools is needed.""There is no catalog for mobile access management (MAM) security.""Regarding mobile devices, Intune is good, but there are other services that I would say are ahead of Intune from an administration and reporting point of view.""Onboarding of endpoint devices is not straightforward. The onboarding process was a little heavier than I thought it would be. That's the key improvement area. Obviously, the more control you have over the devices, the better it is.""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."

More Microsoft Intune Cons →

"Technical support needs to be more responsive to our requests.""The location service could improve and more integration with other devices, such as Android enterprise and Apple devices.""I prefer to work with Jamf Pro because it is more specific to working with the iPad features.""I would like to see some integration with native Microsoft products such as Anti-value.""Security aspects such as data loss prevention could be improved.""VMware Workspace ONE platform offers support for Mac Books and we see that there is some room for improvement in that area versus all the products out there.""Windows 10 management is there, but VMware only recently developed that part, and it's not fully mature. Patch management and other integrations are there as well as the application-pushing part, command line, mandatory commands, etc. Some out-of-the-box solutions should be available to better integrate a broader range of applications and handle application push. That's the roadmap we should look at.""The initial setup should be simplified."

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."

  • "There is a separate cost for technical support and extra premium features. The pricing should be simplified."

  • "VMware Workspace ONE is not cheap; it's quite expensive. However, in the end, they gave us a reasonable price."
  • "If you have a host of custom requirements (including licensing), make sure to set aside enough time for the initial setup because it can take up to a few weeks depending on how complex your environment is."
  • "I think that the price is reasonable."
