Do you need a simple, but yet effective way of forcing people into updating iOS on their company enrolled Apple devices? Simply block access to company resources if iOS is not up to date. Here is how you can do that using Microsoft Intune and Conditional Access in Microsoft Azure.
I have previously given a few examples on use cases for Conditional Access, and I admit, for the Conditional Access newbie, the options available can seem daunting. So how about a very simple scenario, where access to company resources are blocked, if not coming from a trusted IP?
Imagine service accounts running some Powershell scripts for automation in your Azure/O365 tenant or other accounts who are never meant to be used outside of your organization. Simply block those from authenticating in Azure/O365 if not coming from your headquarter public IP. This is how you can do just that, using Conditional Access.
Last week I gave an example on how to leverage Microsoft Intune and Conditional Access to restrict access to Exchange Online for iOS devices. This week, I’m continuing the use of Microsoft Intune and Conditional Access, and will give an example on how to restrict access to company e-mail if not using a Windows 10 1803 device. All of this based on a computer co-managed with both Microsoft Intune and Configuration Manager.
So basically; no e-mails if not running on the latest and greatest version of Windows 10 on my co-managed device.
Long title, but that’s actually what this post is going to cover; how you can secure the access to company e-mail accounts and only allow access to such, if coming from an enrolled (compliant) Intune device and that device uses the Outlook app.
In this scenario, we only uses iOS devices and of such only allow enrollment of iOS devices, but this can of course be android and Windows as well. Everything in this post is achievable with the use of Microsoft Intune and Conditional Access in Azure. Curious? Read on 🙂
While brewing on a much more detailed post on how I moved my devices from Intune Hybrid with ConfigMgr to Intune standalone, I thought I’d share how you can offer webmail for your users, while requiring MFA (Multifactor Authentication) if not coming from a company device, using Conditional Access.
