March 25, 2024, by Philippe Paradis, Laura Martel

With hybrid work and mobility becoming major trends in today's organizations, effectively managing the technological infrastructure poses a significant challenge for IT teams. It's worth noting that nowadays, a large majority of the global workforce relies on three or more devices for work, alongside the ability to work from virtually anywhere and utilize a plethora of applications.

While these new setups offer users flexibility, they also greatly complicate IT work, especially concerning remote device management and data security.

In this context, Microsoft Intune emerges as a valuable tool for organizations seeking tighter control over various accesses to cloud services within the organization.

For this occasion, we've asked Philippe Paradis, a certified Microsoft solutions trainer, to explain briefly what Intune is and to present four compelling reasons to adopt the solution in your organization.

What is Intune?

Microsoft Intune is a solution for managing on-site and mobile devices, as well as cloud-based users.

4 Reasons to Adopt Intune in Your Organization

1) Enhanced Security: Microsoft Intune enables robust mobile device management to secure your organization's devices, configure them according to security policies, and protect them against threats.
