Intune security details
Microsoft controls physical access to our datacenters and systems with two-tier authentication. Only select, thoroughly vetted Microsoft staff have logistical access to Intune and your data. Our staff has years of experience in delivering the world’s largest online services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
We constantly maintain, enhance, and verify our infrastructure, and employ regular penetration testing to continually validate the performance of Intune security controls and processes.
Mobile devices and apps
Each mobile platform has its own security models and processes. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to protect communications between your organization’s mobile devices and Intune.
Intune provides account, administrator, and company portals, all of which have access controls, use SSL, and have inactivity timeouts.
Identity and authentication
Intune uses Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) for user authentication. You can enable a single sign-on experience for your users by connecting their on-premises directories with Azure AD.
System Center 2012 Configuration Manager
You can extend your existing System Center Configuration Manager infrastructure through integration with Intune to provide a consistent management experience across devices on premises and in the cloud.
