MobileIron has added support for the Microsoft Intune Device Compliance service for Microsoft 365 and other managed apps. MobileIron’s zero-trust security platform already supported Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS).
Existing users of Microsoft 365 and EMS can now process Microsoft’s Conditional Access features with MobileIron’s device management capabilities.
According to Brian Foster, senior vice president product, this is also badly needed, as workstations are becoming increasingly mobile and mobile devices are increasingly being used for business-critical tasks. That brings with it serious security risks.
Integration with the Microsoft Intune Device Compliance service ensures that only devices that are familiar with and comply with security policy standards can access Microsoft 365 applications.
The new integration is an extension of the existing support for the Microsoft Graph APIs for Intune. This allows organizations to apply application security rules to Office 365 applications, while MobileIron manages and secures the mobile devices.
With the new integration, the company wants to give its customers more freedom of choice in the field of secure Unified Endpoint Management.
To take advantage of the new integration with the Microsoft Intune Device Compliance service, a license for Microsoft Intune and Azure Active Directory Premium is required, as well as the relevant MobileIron license.
Zero trust security platform
MobileIron’s zero trust security platform was unveiled in May this year. The platform turns mobile devices into a digital identity card that provides secure access to the corporate network.
The platform claims to go beyond traditional gateways and identity management solutions. This is because the platform checks for a wider range of features before granting access. In addition, organizations no longer need to use passwords for authentication, but can set zero sign-on.This news article was automatically translated from Dutch to give Techzine.eu a head start.
