1. NHSmail Intune Service
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.
NHSmail Intune is now moving to general availability with the following device types supported; Android, iOS/iPadOS, Windows 10 (and later) and HoloLens 2.
Future releases will follow and include a Windows 10 Hybrid solution which will allow organisations to continue to consume On-Premises resources (e.g., printing and network storage drives), whilst enabling organisations to adopt the NHSmail Intune Service and the benefits associated with cloud device management.
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. 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.
For the full list of prerequisites required, please see the NHSmail Intune Terms of Reference (ToR).
1.2. Supported devices
Android , iOS/iPadOS, Windows 10 (and later) and HoloLens 2 will be supported across corporate clinical and non-clinical devices.
