Microsoft 365 Business Part 4 – Office 365 Business Deployment

In the earlier posts in this series we covered Windows 10 Business, Azure Active Directory and Windows AutoPilot, and now we move over to the deployment of Office 365 Business. In the last post on Windows AutoPilot we saw that this gets installed automatically as part of the Azure Active Domain Join and autoenrollment into Intune, and today we’ll take a look at enabling this deployment, as well as what is going on behind the scenes with Intune.

Microsoft 365 Business Part 2 – Azure Active Directory

In the first post of this series I covered the Windows 10 Pro upgrades included in Microsoft 365 Business, today it’s time to discuss the Azure Active Directory components that work alongside Intune to enable Windows 10 Business. I’ll start by posting the components included with the Microsoft 365 Business SKU again. Third from the bottom you can see Azure Active Directory, and this version is a subset of Azure Active Premium P1, focusing on the required components that allow

Inspire 2017 Enterprise Mobility + Security Session Recordings

Following up from the last post on Inspire’s Microsoft 365 session recordings, this post includes the links to the recorded sessions for Enterprise Mobility + Security as well as some of the standalone components.  I had a chance to see a couple of these in person, including the sessions by @vladpetrosyan and @markmorow and had a chance to catch up with some of the other presenters in the expo hall between sessions.

AAD Application Proxy In The Azure Portal

AAD App Integration In the Azure Portal

This is the first in a series of posts focused on performing common Azure Active Directory tasks in the Ibiza portal, starting with app integration.

Azure MFA VPN Support In Preview

When running through the different pieces of Enterprise Mobility + Security with those who are focused on the cloud only components, it usually comes as a surprise to see how many different on-premises services can be extended with the different EMS components. The one that people know about is AADConnect, but Intune has connectors for Configuration Manager, Exchange and Simple Enrolment Protocol, AIP/RMS has the Azure RMS connector, and of course Advanced Threat Analytics is deployed by the customer.

Changes to Access Work Or School in Windows 10 Insider Preview

One of the things that Windows 10 Azure Active Directory join with Intune auto enrolment is that it has protected me from some of the changes that were taking place in the Windows Settings UI for Access Work Or School. With the Anniversary Update there were some changes that made it harder to figure out what was happening, especially around clarity in joining Azure AD versus just performing a device enrolment. With the current Insider preview builds, steps have been

Intune December 2016 Updates

There have been several new announcements over the last few days regarding EMS, but the one that many have been holding out for is the public preview of the Intune admin experience in the Azure Portal. While we can’t quite lay our Silverlight dependency to rest just yet, it’s getting closer. We’ve had MAM without enrolment in the Azure Portal for quite a while, recently user groups have moved out of Intune groups, and now the new portal preview. What’s
