Microsoft Intune. Worthy Competitor?

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook Post to StumbleUpon

Today Microsoft announced more about its new monitoring and management service, Intune. At first Intune seemed like a wanna-be and I know a lot of IT professionals that greeted the news of Microsoft’s foray into desktop monitoring and management in just that light. But at WPC Microsoft announced their product differentiator and today they announced the price. Here’s what they’ve got to offer:

  • A cloud service. Web portal to manage all of your client’s computers from a single web portal.
  • Monitoring and Alerting
  • Anti-Virus
  • Anti-Malware
  • Remote Assistance
  • Inventory management
  • Updates and patching

OK so, so far it sounds like everyone else’s product. But wait there’s more:

All of this for $12 per month, per PC. If you don’t want the Desktop Optimization Pack, then it’s $11 a month.

So what do you think? To me it looks like Microsoft is pulling out the stops and creating a very appealing bundle not just a wanna-be. They have really differentiated and are offering something that only Microsoft can offer.
