Did you know that Office 365 also includes the fantastic product that is InTune, and this can be part of your environment as well, enchanting your management of remote devices which rarely sit at a desk plugged into the company LAN.
InTune is the cloud based management system which allows you to enforce policies, provide AV and managed updates and track / wipe lost devices. What’s more, you can even link this seamlessly to your existing on site SCCM deployment, if you have one. If not, then it’s not required!!!
