Helping IT Send and Provision Business PCs at Home to Work Securely During COVID-19
Introduction
The need for remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge for businesses of all sizes. Many organizations are struggling to ensure that their employees’ work-from-home setup is secure and compliant with company policies.

Cloud-based solutions, such as Microsoft Intune, can help IT professionals send and provision business PCs to employees at home, so they can work securely. Here’s how IT teams can use Intune to help manage devices and ensure secure access to corporate resources from remote locations.

Key Benefits of Intune for Remote Working
Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based service that helps IT professionals manage and secure corporate data on PCs, phones, and tablets. It is integrated with Microsoft 365 and provides robust and easy-to-implement security and compliance solutions.

Intune helps business owners and IT professionals to manage and protect corporate data and devices from anywhere. It provides the following key benefits when setting up remote working:

* Ensures remote workers have secure access to corporate networks and resources.
* Helps IT professionals keep track of company-owned devices and manage them remotely.
* Enables IT professionals to remotely configure, deploy, and update applications.
* Provides an easy-to-use interface that allows IT professionals to monitor and manage devices from one central location.
* Helps ensure that corporate data is secure and compliant with company policies.

Steps for Setting Up Remote Working with Intune
Step 1: Configure Intune for Remote Working
The first step in setting up remote working with Intune is to configure the service. IT professionals should start by creating a Microsoft Intune tenant, a resource allocation plan, and an appropriate organizational unit.

Once the configuration is complete, IT can then start enrolling devices into the Intune tenant. IT should also configure the enrollment process to ensure that devices are enrolled securely and compliant with company policies.

Step 2: Configure Device Profiles
Once the device is enrolled in the Intune tenant, IT professionals should then configure device profiles. These profiles should include settings that ensure that the device is secure and compliant with company policies.

For example, IT professionals can configure policies that require devices to be protected with a password, enable encryption, and require devices to be checked for malicious software.

Step 3: Configure Access Policies
In order to ensure secure access to corporate resources, IT professionals should also configure access policies. These policies should include settings that limit access to corporate resources to approved devices only.

For example, IT can configure policies that require a device to be registered in Intune and compliant with company policies before allowing access to corporate resources.

Step 4: Deploy Applications and Updates
Once the device is enrolled and the policies are configured, IT professionals can then start deploying applications and updates to the device. IT can use the Intune console to deploy applications and updates to devices remotely.

The applications and updates should be configured to ensure that the device is secure and compliant with company policies.

Step 5: Monitor and Manage Devices
Finally, IT professionals should monitor and manage devices from one central location. Intune provides an easy-to-use interface that allows IT professionals to monitor and manage devices from one central location.

The interface also provides tools that allow IT professionals to troubleshoot issues, view usage data, and check device compliance.

Conclusion
Microsoft Intune is a powerful cloud-based solution that can help IT professionals manage and secure corporate data on PCs, phones, and tablets. The service can help IT professionals send and provision business PCs to employees at home, so they can work securely.

Intune provides a range of features that can help IT professionals configure and deploy applications and updates, monitor devices, and ensure secure access to corporate resources from remote locations.

Using Intune can help IT teams ensure that their employees’ work-from-home setup is secure and compliant with company policies.
