Android Company Portal for Windows Intune released

Hello folks,

As Exchange Administrators a hot topic that several companies haven’t started the discussion yet is the BYOD (Brind Your Own Device) and there are several ways to manage devices using ActiveSync policies.

Windows Intune can help us out adding more solutions for Android end-points.

 

As of today you can find the Android Company Portal for Windows Intune in the Google Play store.

  • Erase all data, including a factory reset
  • Change the screen-unlock password

  • Disable cameras
  • Push deep-links Google Play Store App’s to the company portal
