Security is a top concern for organizations using the cloud. When it comes to managing your cloud resources, identity and access are key to security. Users access your organization's resources from a myriad of devices, apps and locations. As a result, focusing solely on who can access a resource is no longer sufficient. To optimize the balance between security and productivity, an organization must also consider how each resource is accessed. Conditional Access, an Azure Active Directory capability bundled with a Premium license, addresses this need, enabling automated, condition-based access control.
Intune enhances this capability by adding mobile device compliance and mobile app management to the solution. Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution for maintaining productivity while protecting corporate data by controlling employee access to applications and data on virtually any platform or device. Intune is used to grant conditional access to the devices and apps that connect to your email and company resources.
