Earlier this month Microsoft announced the new Microsoft Intune functionality that have been released earlier this week. One of the new features is the ability to manage Mobile Application Management Policies from the new Azure Portal.
With the MAM policies you are able to prevent data leakage from the corporate apps that are managed but for now only for Apps that are managed without being enrolled in to Microsoft Intune. The MAM policies / Intune node in the Azure portal are currently in preview.
A quick sneak preview.
After login on to the new Azure portal via https://portal.azure.com, you need to click Browse to add the Intune node to the bar.
After selecting Intune you are able to setup a MAM policy for the Office Apps that can be managed via MAM even if they are installed on not by Intune managed devices.
After selecting the apps you can configure the settings for iOS or Android.
What is pretty cool is that with this policy you are able to configure that the data will be wiped if the device is offline for an XX number of days! This way you are prevent that a compromised (offline) devices can be used to get access to the data at rest. This is new and hopefully this feature will also arrive in the policies for the apps on enrolled deviecs.
