Helping you streamline app management
As we shared in a recent article, the Microsoft Intune Suite is expanding with ‘Microsoft Intune Enterprise App Management’, ‘Microsoft Intune Advanced Analytics’ and ‘Microsoft Cloud PKI’ coming in February 2024. This article will delve deeper into Microsoft Intune Enterprise Application Management’ and explore how it can help you streamline your app management, allowing your IT team to focus on more strategic tasks.
As a recent Microsoft report highlights, many organisations face challenges keeping their applications updated and secure. The report reveals that nine months on from the release of a fix for a critical vulnerability, 78% of devices remain unpatched. This lag between vulnerabilities being detected, patches being released, and those patches being applied significantly weakens your organisation’s defences, making you more susceptible to cyber-attacks.
Navigating applications from different developers and ensuring each is kept up to date is a cumbersome task for IT teams. IT admins often spend hours packaging apps to prepare them for deployment, ensuring end users can work effectively and rely on the apps they need to remain productive. Time could which could be invested in more strategic tasks. Therefore, organisations must have a streamlined and efficient way of managing their third-party applications, including easy access, discovery and deployment solutions.
Microsoft Intune Enterprise App Management is a comprehensive solution which enables your IT and security operations teams to simplify the lifecycle of managing applications by providing a secure, prepackaged catalogue of apps. This supports your IT administrators by reducing the time and effort they need to spend on packaging apps and tracking updates. With this solution, your IT teams can efficiently deploy fixes to vulnerable apps and ensure that all apps are updated directly from the Intune admin centre.
Streamlining app management
With easy access to a comprehensive catalogue of Microsoft and third-party applications complete with available language packs and architectures, you can tailor your selection based on specific preferences and needs. Once the desired application is selected, editable metadata is prefilled with essential details, such as install and uninstall commands.
Keeping apps secure & updated
Enterprise App Management streamlines and consolidates the application update process by providing a comprehensive view of all apps that need an update from a simple, centralised dashboard. A list of apps in the catalogue with available updates shows current and new versions. The work traditionally required to monitor updates and gather application-related data and packaging is significantly reduced, allowing admins to focus on more strategic tasks.
