Intune Stand-Alone and Hybrid Comparison

Hi All, have you ever need to compare what Intune Stand-Alone and Hybrid can do for you? there are lots of information out there, but none (as far as my research goes), did a comparison between the settings. it is easy to say if you have over 50k devices, you should consider the hybrid scenario (where sccm connects to intune), but if you’re lower than that number? Should you consider Intune Stand-Alone or Hybrid? In his blog post i’ll try to provide you some of the key points and providing a winner (in my opinion). In this post i’m only looking at the MDM solution for iOS and Android Knox comparison and not every single feature that both solutions can provide. Before we start, I’ve focused on the version 1511 of the SCCM with some notes of what available on the 1602 and the latest version of intune, and I…

old 2015 and new 2016

Hi All, I would like to start this post talking about last year, 2015. 2015 started great, with renewing my MVP award. as you can imagine, this is the 1st email I look for on the 1st day of the year, being part of this community is just something that I cannot explain in works, but if I had to choose one it would be: WOW. 2015 was a crazy year for me, in both professional and personal lives. I had been working as CTO/Principal Consultant (and I also was a non-executive directory) for a company called xinfra, but unfortunately, the owner/director decided to close the company down and, so I decided to take my take the risk and take my own business (RFL Systems) to the next level, instead of working of behalf of other companies. And I hope the RFL Systems brand will only grow this year, with…

Starting discussion: Intune or SCCM

Hi All, I’d like to start this post saying that this is my only opinion and may/may not be the same opinion as Microsoft or any other person and it is based on my experience working on a series companies over the years (from many sectors of the economy and from many countries) So, let’s start. I often get this question, Should we use Microsoft Intune or SCCM? and just few times, they say, should we integrate Intune with SCCM or use it stand alone? Before answering this question, we need to know a bit of the history. And let’s start with SCCM. SCCM born in 1994 as SMS (or System Management Systems) as the same says, it was a system created to manage systems and was created in a 4-6 years update cycle, what I mean by that is that Microsoft release a new version every 4 to 6…

Hotfix extends client notification in System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager to MDM devices

Players, I had a bit of a panic induced call from a former client this morning because it took to long time to wipe a device from SCCM. Luckily there is a hotfix for this. He applied it and … as if my magic, the issue went away, we were unable to test this on Android devices, but his iOS and Windows 8.1 devices were all wiping a lot faster. Prerequisites To apply this hotfix, you must have CU3 for System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager installed. Restart information You do not have to restart the computer after you apply this hotfix. Hotfix can be found here http://support2.microsoft.com/kb/2990658/en-us Enjoy @Heinrich_Pelser

@Heinrich_Pelser Windows 10. Top 6.4 things you want to know.

Players, Windows 10. Excited? Well you should be. Or maybe you shouldn’t. I don’t know about you, but my entire body is numb with the constant barrage of “new and totally awesome this time round, we promise software” from Microsoft. Here is some stuff you might want to know. 1. Windows 10 for Business If it wasn’t for enterprise clients, Microsoft would be dead. So tailoring a new OS that will replace, well, Windows 7, is a must. The “vision” is that end users will have an intuitive and much more familiar desktop experience as things are taking a step back into the norm. There is also a promise that management of Windows 10 can be done with existing enterprise solutions such as System Center or InTune. The push is towards the cloud and we will see more and more releases from Microsoft that will introduce cloud bases management of enterprise kit and data….

Disable manual WiFi configuration of Windows Phone 8.1 through ConfigMgr

  I was recently working with a security-conscious customer to enable mobile device management through ConfigMgr 2012 R2. They had purchased a Windows Intune subscription and were following CESG guidelines regarding managing security policy for company-owned Windows Phone 8.1 devices. All the mobile data was routed through a private APN into the company LAN where it could be processed by the internal proxy rules. They also needed to use the phones as a tethering device for mobile users’ laptops so that, again, all data was routed through the LAN and its’ security appliances. I had a requirement to configure the following combination of ConfigMgr Configuration Item settings to enable this scenario: Tethering should be enabled. Wifi should be enabled only for an approved access point within the company’s offices. A user should not be able to join private wifi networks and hotspots etc.   Now according to various release comments…
