Windows Intune

With Microsoft cloud services such as Office 365, CRM Online, and Windows Azure stealing most of the spotlight lately Windows Intune has almost gone unnoticed, though it is a pretty cool service in its own right. Imagine being able to secure and manage computers and mobile devices - track assets, generate software and hardware inventory, set policies, deploy software, configure security settings and endpoint protection, provide remote assistance - all without needing any infrastructure and at a cost of only $6 per user a month (each user can have up to 5 managed devices assigned), add a little more - $11 per user a month and you get Windows Software Assurance benefits (like free upgrade to Windows 8 Enterprise). If this sounds great, Windows Intune might be a perfect solution for you!

Small and mid-size businesses can manage their IT environment entirely through the cloud, while larger enterprises may choose to extend their existing on-premises solution by integrating Windows Intune with System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).
