We are excited to announce support for Android enterprise purpose-built device management. This scenario targets task-based use cases, such as unattended guest kiosk experiences, inventory tracking, mobile ticketing, point-of-sale devices, digital signage, and other cases where devices need to be tightly managed and heavily locked down. Microsoft Intune’s enterprise mobility management delivers a secure and reliable management experience for these devices.

 

Devices managed in this way enroll into Intune using popular new enrollment methods, such as scanning a QR code or Android zero touch enrollment, without needing to have user account credentials on the device. IT admins configure these corporate-owned devices to be used in locked-down environments, allowing only the app or apps necessary to complete the task, while preventing users from accessing settings, installing apps, or changing other device functions that could interfere with reliable operation.
