Managing your modern workplace with Microsoft Intune and Azure Automation

Managing your modern workplace with Microsoft Intune and Azure Automation

If you are looking for a way to simplify your modern workplace management, Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Intune) is your answer.

Backup and Restore your Microsoft Intune configuration with PowerShell!

6/25/20: BREAKING Update: IntuneBackupAndRestore v2.0.0 released, which relies on the Microsoft.Graph.Intune PowerShell module instead of MSGraphFunctions Thanks to community feedback and with the version 2.0.0 release of the IntuneBackupAndRestore PowerShell Module, the MSGraphFunctions PowerShell Module is now deprecated and will no longer be maintained by me.

Serverless LAPS powered by Microsoft Intune, Azure Functions and Azure Key Vault!

I’m excited to introduce a Serverless Local Administrator Password Solution (SLAPS 😉) for Windows 10 Intune Managed devices, powered by Microsoft Intune PowerShell scripts, Azure Functions and Azure Key Vault.
