What is Microsoft Intune for GCC and GCC High?

Microsoft Intune is now part of Microsoft Endpoint Manager, a suite that includes Intune and Configuration Manager. Microsoft Intune for Microsoft 365 GCC and GCC High is available as a standalone license or part of the Microsoft 365 EM+S E3 and E5 licenses.

Both products within Microsoft Endpoint Manager integrate with Azure Active Directory in Azure Government to give visibility and configuration management for mobile device access, while providing robust native control to IT leaders within small to large defense contractor organizations.

 

Does Microsoft Intune in GCC High Help Meet CMMC Level 3 Compliance?

Organizations can meet CMMC compliance for specific practices across several different domains using Microsoft Intune in GCC or GCC High in combination with configuration settings and policies in Azure Government and Microsoft Defender for Endpoint.

 

CMMC Level 3 has 130 practices that an organization will be assessed on. Organizations can meet 31 of these practices using Microsoft Intune in conjunction with other Microsoft products. While each domain and practice won’t be covered here, one of the key areas addressed in CMMC is the Access Control (AC) Domain.

 

For example, Intune allows you to fulfill the requirements for practice AC.3.022, which requires organizations to encrypt CUI on mobile devices and mobile platforms. Using Intune combined with the native polices and configuration options in Azure, users can set device compliance policies and configure Conditional Access to deny access to unencrypted devices to your systems, ensuring compliance with this specific practice. This in addition to data and file encryption applied through Microsoft Information Protection allows organizations to encrypt the data and the container on mobile devices.
