Keep data safe

What is Microsoft Endpoint Manager?

Microsoft Endpoint Manager is an On-Premise and Cloud-based Security solution that helps provide the modern workspace and management functions to keep data safe, both in the cloud and on-premises.

Microsoft Endpoint Manager includes the services and tools used to manage and monitor mobile devices, desktops, virtual machines, embedded devices, and servers.

Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager is the integrated solution within Microsoft Endpoint Manager, which allows IT departments to manage PCs and servers, keeping software up to date, establishing configuration and security policies, and monitoring the status of systems, while grants customers access to corporate applications with the devices of their choice.

What is
Microsoft Intune?

Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based service that focuses on Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile Application Management (MAM). In addition to MDM and MAM, it gives companies the possibility of co-managing between On-Premises and Cloud environments, where local computers can be managed from the System Center Configuration Manager or from the Intune console.

Microsoft Intune allows:

  • Choose to be 100% cloud-based with Intune or co-manage with Configuration Manager and Intune.
  • Establish rules and configure organizational and personal device settings to access data and networks.
  • Deploy and authenticate applications on devices, both local and mobile.
  • Protect your company information by controlling how users access and share information.
  • Ensure that devices and applications are compliant with security requirements.
