Companies who have invested in Intune MDM face challenges when deploying Unified Communication (UC) and Collaboration platforms such as Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams. These apps can be freely obtained and installed on any personal device, outside of Intune’s control. This can open a back door traffic channel into the company’s network. Accessing the UC platform from an un-managed device, that might be Jail-broken or hacked can result in domain credentials theft and malicious traffic entering the network.
SphereShield’s MDM conditional access solution verifies that only devices that are aligned with the company’s security policy, as defined by Intune, can access the corporate network through Skype for Business. If a device becomes non-compliant, all Skype for Business sessions are terminated automatically and access is immediately blocked. Deployment can be done with or without an app depending on the usage and requirements.
