Next Release of Windows Intune

Next Release of Windows Intune Available October 17th
Windows Intune brings together Windows Intune cloud services and upgrade rights to Windows 7 Enterprise to help businesses simplify PC management and security while getting the benefits of a modern operating system. At Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference in July, we announced the beta for the next release of Windows Intune. Our next release of Windows Intune, which includes new features and updates to the July 2011 Beta, will be available on October 17, 2011.

Here is a quick reminder of just a few of the features that will be included in the next version:

  • Software Distribution: Deploy most Microsoft and third-party updates or applications to PCs nearly anywhere over the Internet.
  • Remote Tasks: Remotely perform the tasks such as full scans, quick scans, updating malware definitions, and restarts on Windows Intune managed PCs from the administration console.
  • Read-Only Access: Provide select administrators with read-only access to the administration console so they can view PC information as needed, but not perform any configuration tasks.
  • Enhanced Reporting: Create hardware reports based on new hardware filters for common hardware characteristics; create and save report parameters to make it easy and efficient to run a report again in the future.

For a full list of features—plus step-by-step guidance and video demonstrations to help you explore, deploy, and utilize Windows Intune in your organization—visit the Windows Intune Resource Zone on Springboard and check the Springboard Series Blog on October 17. You can also try the Windows Intune cloud service free for 30 days.
