Project update - Endpoint Management – Consultation and Implementation projects

Monday, May 13, 2024

Project update

During 2022 and early 2023, the Endpoint Management – Consultation project team investigated implementing Microsoft Azure Intune to secure and manage University devices. Based on the feedback and data gathered during this consultation phase, it was recommended to proceed with the implementation of Intune on University devices (Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android). This recommendation marked the conclusion of the Endpoint Management Consultation project and led naturally to the start of the Endpoint Management – Implementation project. 

Where are we now?

The Endpoint Management – Implementation project is progressing well. Final testing and compilation of resources to support the installation of the Intune endpoint management tool on university owned MacOS and Windows devices is currently being completed.

Implementation to begin in the Academic Support Units (ASUs)

In the coming weeks, IST’s Account Reps will contact their Academic Support Computer Reps to communicate MacOS Intune deployment details and next steps. Deployment of Intune will begin with Mac devices, followed by Windows and mobile devices at a future date.

Please note, details regarding deployment of Intune within the Faculties is being confirmed and will be shared when ready.
