What is Microsoft Intune?
In this article, you will learn what is the Intune and what is the key part it plays in Modern device management, we will be looking into the licensing of Intune.
But first, let’s start this post by clarifying the various services we’ll talk about in our article.
- Microsoft Azure is a set of cloud services to help your organization meet your business challenges. This is where you build, manage, and deploy applications on a massive, global network using your favorite tools and frameworks.
- Microsoft Intune was and is still one of Azure’s services to manage your devices. The “old” Intune Portal you were accessing in Azure has moved to the new center.
- Endpoint Manager is a unified management platform for Microsoft Intune and Configuration Manager. (Endpoint security, device management, and intelligent cloud actions)
Holistically, the Endpoint manager is the Bridge between your Traditional SCCM and Modern device management tool Intune.
The below diagram from Microsoft will explain the key components of what MEM does.
So, to wrap up, before you were accessing the Microsoft Intune portal through Azure, now Microsoft wants you to use the new Endpoint Manager Portal. This makes sense since Co-Management and Tenant Attach features from Configuration Manager (SCCM) also synchronize to Microsoft Endpoint Manager.
This will also be the portal to configure Auto-Pilot, Endpoint Analytics, and Defender ATP.
