1. NHSmail Intune Service overview
NHSmail Intune is a new, cloud-based centralised mobile device management (MDM) service. The NHSmail Intune solution will centralise device management under the NHSmail shared tenant, while maintaining a high degree of customisation, oversight and local autonomy for organisations.
Priority is being given to mobile devices (iOS/ iPadOS and Android) with testing ongoing and availability of the service planned for the near future. Future releases will follow and include Windows10 NHSmail domain join and HoloLens2, followed by Windows10 hybrid join solution.
The NHSmail Intune solution will be configured to provide a core set of centrally managed security policies, settings and applications that will be common across all organisations. Local Administrators (LAs) will be able to set up their own Groups, policies, profiles, and apps on top of the centrally managed settings through the use of custom Role Based Access Control (RBAC) permissions.
Some prerequisites need to be met by organisations before onboarding can begin. A full list of these will be provided to organisations prior to onboarding. These include having procured EMS E3 and AADP2 licences for all users, being able to connect Apple Business Manager (ABM) to NHSmail Intune (for Apple devices) and meeting the minimum Operating System requirements.
1.2. Supported devices
iOS/iPadOS, Android, Windows10 and HoloLens2 will be supported across corporate clinical and non-clinical devices.
