Top 10 Intune Best Practices
MS365 - The road to Zero Trust
Here are some best practices for managing Intune that can optimize your deployment, enhance security, and provide a seamless experience for users.
Combine user and device assignments carefully: When deploying applications, consider using filters to blend assignments appropriately. Deploy to a user group or all users, then apply a filter to exclude devices at the time of group membership query.
Deploy MSI Line of Business apps thoughtfully: Wrap MSI LoB apps into Win32 or use cloud-based alternatives to prevent conflicts with Win32 apps that access msiexec.exe simultaneously.
Monitor Apple certificates: Regularly monitor Apple certificates used for MDM Push, Enrolment, and Apple VPP in Intune to prevent disruptions and potential data loss.
Don't overload Autopilot ESP with apps: Populate the Autopilot Enrolment Status Page (ESP) with essential apps for security or crucial functions, and distribute less frequently used apps later to prioritize a smooth onboarding experience.
Use Hybrid Azure AD Join with Autopilot thoughtfully: Transition to Azure AD and full modern management before implementing Autopilot to eliminate the need for hybrid joins.
Use compliance policies effectively: Establish a Conditional Access policy linked to compliance rules to prevent non-compliant devices from accessing resources.
Don't grant users admin rights: Endowing users with admin rights is unnecessary and risky. Use Endpoint Privilege Management and LAPS for Azure AD devices to strengthen security while maintaining functionality.
Keep policies up-to-date: Regularly update policies to ensure a seamless and secure environment.
Review enrolment restrictions regularly: Regularly review and adjust enrolment restrictions to match your environment's needs and evolving capabilities to prevent unauthorized device enrollments.
Understand Azure AD: A deep understanding of Azure AD is crucial for effective Intune management. Explore courses and certifications such as AZ-104 and AZ-140 to enhance your expertise.
