Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I like that we can implement conditional access.""The most valuable features are the ones that make sure that the deployment is of a standard operating system and the Zero Touch deployment, which is very useful. This allows users to have an out of box experience.""It is very easy to use. It has a very easy interface.""Application deployment and keeping the devices secure no matter where they are, by having this cloud solution — that has been great.""It's easy to manage and easy to configure.""This product offers an alternative solution to other UEM (Unified Endpoint Management) solutions.""The biggest thing for us is enforcing logins only from devices that are managed by Intune.""I like how Microsoft Intune lets me lock down the email profile and make it accessible only on certain devices."

"The initial setup is easy and the deployment doesn't take too long.""Workspace ONE adds a lot of value compared to Microsoft because Microsoft is a late entry into the market, and they're still developing their product from an end-user perspective. Workspace ONE has a slight edge because of AirWatch. VMware has developed its product over a longer period of time, so they have better integrations as a whole solution.""Cloud-based VMware Workspace ONE is very good. It is easy to deploy and manage. Maintenance is also quite simple.""The remote management and location capabilities are good.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the tracking of the devices.""You can put all your applications on a mobile device, be it a phone or tablet. It is secure and easy to use. Because it is centrally managed, you don't have to do any configuration on the phone. I just got the phone and connected to the central applications. I just downloaded one thing and everything got rolled out. Email, calendar, and other things were deployed centrally. If you don't have AirWatch, you have to configure your phone manually. For example, you need to deploy and configure your email manually and then synchronize everything. It is much simpler when a mobile device is centrally managed.""The solution has very good documentation.""A very easy to use solution."

Cons
"There is no catalog for mobile access management (MAM) security.""They need to integrate more with security options.""It would be great to see on-premises mailboxes and for the solution to have geofencing capabilities.""The pricing can be expensive if you are not combining it with other products.""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.""The configuration and pricing can be improved.""There are items that require improvements. One is the controls from iOS.""It would be better if they can reduce the cost of the license."

More Microsoft Intune Cons →

"The reverse proxy is not intuitive and it takes time to get it right, so this is something that can be improved.""I prefer to work with Jamf Pro because it is more specific to working with the iPad features.""Feature-wise, it is fine, but its pricing could be better, given that Microsoft is on a bundling spree. AirWatch would benefit from reducing the license pricing per user per month.""There are other solutions that might be better for certain use cases. This is not an all-purpose solution.""I would like to see improvements made to both the support, and the pricing.""The pricing could always be better.""When it comes to deployment and maintaining security, there should be an integrated console where you have a singular view of all of the products from the same OEM.""There should be better compatibility with Linux devices."

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."
  • "The cost is a little bit high."
  • "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."
  • "Pricing is an area that could be improved."
  • "Its pricing was okay for our company."
  • "It's an expensive tool."
