Course Description

Managing Security for Mobile Devices have never been more important. You should not allow any device accessing your environment or data without some sort of controls. Unprotected or unknown devices are a risk for your organization. 

In this course you will learn how to secure access to your data using a combination of Azure AD Conditional Access and Microsoft Intune. You will also learn how to manage and secure Android and iOS/iPadOS devices. You will learn some basics on how to setup the requirements for managing each platform before we spend the time diving into the details. The Course is delivered in cooperation with our partner CloudWay. The instructors on the course are Microsoft MVPs Maurice Daly, Sandy Zeng, Ben Whitmore, and Jan Ketil Skanke. As with all our academy courses, the info presented is up to date, and gathered from real-world implementations.
