Microsoft Intune (formerly Windows Intune) is a cloud-based desktop and mobile device management tool that helps organizations provide their employees with access to corporate applications, data, and resources from the device of their choice.

It is a component of Microsoft's Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS), which helps maximize user productivity while protecting corporate data by restricting access to Exchange email and OneDrive for business documents when a user tries to access resources on an unenrolled or non-compliant device.

Admins can integrate their existing System Center Configuration Manager with Intune and collect information about hardware configurations and software installed on managed computers.

Microsoft Intune subscriptions are licensed on a per-user basis.
