Yesterday, Microsoft announced the launch of Microsoft Intune Suite, a new suite that includes advanced endpoint management and security solutions. Instead of deploying multi-vendor endpoint management and security solutions, organizations can deploy Intune to centralize and consolidate the tools, and reduce their overall TCO.
The new Intune Suite is available to subscribers of Microsoft 365 E3 and E5. Microsoft will continue to offer the individual Intune services as before, but the new plan will be available for less than the sum of all the add-ons.
The new Intune Suite comes with the following set of capabilities:
- Remote Help is a tool that will assist helpdesks—especially important as workers are now working away from the office more often. Remote Help is already available for Windows users and will also come to Android and Mac endpoints in future releases. It enables IT helpdesk teams to remotely troubleshoot a user’s desktop and mobile devices based on a user’s existing company identity. The extra Android support will prove particularly useful for managing frontline workers’ devices. Learn more about recent Remote Help updates for Windows.
- Endpoint Privilege Management, in preview in March 2023 and generally available in April 2023, will enable the controlled elevation of Windows standard users so security controls don’t get in the way of productivity. The right users will have the right privileges at the right time, to reduce the security risk of overprivileged users and reduce the burden on the help desk by allowing greater self-serve for basic scenarios, like setting up a local printer.

- The Intune Suite also offers advanced endpoint analytics features, data-driven insights that help IT administrators understand, anticipate, and improve the user experience for the staff in the organization.
- There is also Microsoft Tunnel for Mobile App Management, a micro-VPN that connects corporate resources from personal iOS/iPadOS and Android devices, so employees can have access to company resources from their personal mobile devices when duty calls.
- The Intune Suite improves the management of specialty devices, to give employees the flexibility to choose the device they need to get the job done without those devices becoming points of vulnerability.
- Following the March 1, 2023, launch, another capability that will be added to the Intune Suite is advanced app management, offering an enterprise app catalog and controls for easy app discovery, deployment, and automatic updating to mitigate risks introduced by out-of-date apps. Later this year, Microsoft will also introduce a cloud certificate management solution to issue and manage VPN and Wi-Fi certificates from Intune to devices without on-premises infrastructure. We will continue to add additional advanced capabilities to the Intune Suite over time, providing more endpoint security, automation, and control of the user computing landscape and experience.
