Microsoft Intune Endpoint Manager, Support, Management & Consulting Services.
Maximizing success in a hybrid work environment requires advanced solutions to manage security policies and fight the dramatic rise of successful phishing schemes and ransomware attacks fueled by the rapid shift to remote work.
Companies that only relied on their internal office network struggled immensely with security and control of their data as employees were compelled to work from home, often on their personal devices instead of approved corporate computers.
As some workers return to the office, others in the same company may remain remote. The next challenge for employers is to safely manage this hybrid office while ensuring secure access to on-premises corporate data and email regardless of device.
Microsoft Intune delivers the security and flexibility your hybrid office needs to stay productive and safely access company data and email on any Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS devices in one unified mobile solution.
