The Jan/Feb 2014 update to Windows Intune has now been out for a couple of weeks. This was the first update that was released through the SCCM “Extensions for Windows Intune”
So what did the update actually include:
- Ability for the administrator to configure email profiles, which can automatically configure (IOS and WP8) the device with the appropriate email server information and related policies, as well as the ability to remove the profile along with the email itself via a remote wipe if needed (Only IOS).
- Support for new configuration settings in iOS 7, including the "Managed open in" capability to protect corporate data by controlling which apps and accounts are used to open documents and attachments, and disabling the fingerprint unlock feature.
- Ability for the administrator to remotely lock the device if it is lost or stolen, and reset the password if the user forgets it (as of now, this this feature only exist in the Intune standalone cloud service).
If you would like to see a good demo of some of the new features, please look at the interview on Channel9 with Martin Booth
