Microsoft Intune (Endpoint Manager) helps create and deploy app protection policies for devices you want to manage. The Endpoint Manager helps manage apps on users’ personal devices. You can decide on which apps you want to protect, the level of protection needed, and how to find enterprise data on the network.
Because of the linking of Microsoft Intune to Azure Active Directory, device management becomes centralized and easy for organizations. This synchronization helps the organization ensure security and create a unified experience for all users in the IT Network.
So to categorize and give an overview of what Microsoft Intune can do, it can:
This article shows how to install Line-of-Business (LOB) Apps (ATERA in this blog post) using Microsoft Intune. This would lead to the installation being silently run in the background on all or selective users or devices simultaneously. The benefit is that it would not impact or interrupt the end users’ work (except when it is a Linux System, as a prompt would be sent to proceed with the installation).
Create a policy in Microsoft Intune and then push that policy forward-
Under which you have 3 options Add Group, Add all Users, Add all Devices. You can push the app to get installed in A Group, All Users or All Devices.
Add Group- Let’s you install the apps in a particular Group that you have created
All Users- Irrespective of the device the user is using, the apps would get installed on each users’ device.
All Devices- The apps would get installed on All the devices that fall under the company’s IT network.
Apps are displayed in the Company portal app and website for users to optionally install.
This option uninstalls the app from the selected Groups/User/Device.
Once you configure as per your requirement click on the Next button.
The third tab is “Review + Create”,
You can Review the configuration that you did and edit if changes are needed and then click on Create button.
Once the steps are completed, the Atera agent will be installed in all the selected users’ machines via Intune. For any machines that are offline, the installation will commence once they are back online.
This procedure was for installing Atera Agent using an .msi file but you can perform similar steps to install any App of your choice.
Once you click on App Type, you’ll find a list that includes options of Store Apps (Android Store Apps, iOS Store Apps, Microsoft Store App), Microsoft 365 Apps and Other Apps (Web Links, LOB Apps, Built-in Apps etc)
