We are thrilled to announce the upcoming general availability of Microsoft Intune app protection policies in Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android for secure access to internal and external sites. This is an exciting step in our journey of evolving Microsoft Edge into the best browser for the enterprise. Since the launch of our preview, we have received great customer engagement with over 50,000 monthly active users already using Microsoft Edge targeted with Microsoft Intune policies on iOS and Android. Using a browser protected with Intune policy ensures that corporate data is always accessed with safeguards in place.
With this release, Microsoft Edge supports the same application management and security scenarios as the Intune Managed Browser. Microsoft Intune app protection policies for Microsoft Edge complete the security perimeter for your organization’s data and resources. Organizations can now standardize on Microsoft Edge across all platforms for a superior user experience, while leveraging industry-leading security features, including:
- Intune application protection policies
- Azure Active Directory conditional access
- App Proxy integration
- single-sign on, and
- application configuration settings for Microsoft Edge
Here’s a quick demo:
Beyond the security features, Microsoft Edge offers a world-class browser with fast page-rendering and delightful productivity and personalization features. The cornerstone of the Microsoft Edge mobile enterprise experience is support for both work and personal identities. As with the Office 365 and Outlook apps, this dual-identity model allows end users to use Microsoft Edge for all browsing needs and easily move between the two experiences based on the content policies defined by the administrator. All the while, browsing in the personal context is unaffected and corporate information is kept containerized to the work context within Microsoft Edge. Browsing data such as cookies, passwords, history, clipboard content is kept separate between the two identity contexts.
This secure browsing solution will be available later this month for all your iOS and Android users, whether managed by Intune, managed by a different MDM product, or not managed at the device level.
