Need of Device & App Management
Office 365 is a great product that gives you access to information anywhere and on any devices, however, it does open a challenge to protect and control company data.
Organizations want to use Office 365 to increase employee productivity, however, without compromising security.
Following is what we hear from our customers:
- We want to control which devices and location our services will be accessible from.
- We want to ensure that business data is not copied to personal apps.
- We want to manage devices (PCs & mobiles) and business apps.
- We want to implement information protection policies.
A self-service portal gives people the ability to check their system health and to unenroll a device that no longer needs to be managed. For example, if a device has been lost or stolen, the user can either remove Intune management or ask us to do so. When a device is removed, corporate assets are automatically deleted. Devices can be completely or selectively wiped.
A full wipe restores the device to its factory defaults. This removes all company and user data and settings. A full wipe can be performed on Windows Phone, iOS, and Android devices.
A selective wipe removes only company data. The specific data that a selective wipe removes and the effect on data that remains on the device vary by platform.
