NHSmail Intune Overview

1. NHSmail Intune Service

NHSmail Intune is a corporate mobile device management (MDM) service that is integrated with existing NHSmail capabilities and natively supports the multi-organisational nature of NHSmail. NHSmail Intune provides centralised device management capability and allows organisations to maintain a good degree of oversight and local autonomy over their Android, iOS/iPadOS, Windows 10/11 and HoloLens 2 devices using Role Based Access Controls (RBAC).

NHSmail Intune’s configuration provides a core set of centrally managed security postures, settings, and applications for easy policy assignment, however organisations can also customise their own groups, policies, profiles, and apps alongside the centrally managed settings by using custom RBAC permissions.
