Windows Intune Offers Desktop Management Tools in a Cloud-Based Service

Microsoft has recently opened a beta of their new Windows Intune product. While the functionality in the Intune offering is not new, what is unique about it is the packaging. Intune is a collection of some of Microsoft’s most helpful desktop management tools sold as a cloud-based service. I spoke with Alex Heaton, the Intune Group Product Manager at Microsoft to learn more. Let’s take a closer look at what exactly Intune is and is not.

When Microsoft says that Intune is a cloud-based service, it means that the management end of the application sits on Microsoft’s servers. On each desktop that you want to use with Intune, you install a local application which securely communicates with the Microsoft servers. Intune does not need any kind of integration with your Active Directory deployment or any of your servers. This eliminates a lot of potential headaches around security, and also allows Intune to be used in environments without Active Directory. Microsoft has also built out a management system for managed service providers who may want to handle multiple customer accounts with Intune.
