Microsoft Intune & ScappMan

Manage Third Party Apps and updates remotely

57% of all hacks could have been prevented by simply installing updates.
Managing devices, policies, apps & updates is challenging, time-consuming but oh-so-important. Microsoft EndPoint Manager gets you very far, but there are limitations. Belgian Scappman is a cloud service that connects to Microsoft Intune and further extends its capabilities by including:

Automate time-consuming operations such as packing updates
Create user-groups in which apps are rolled out
Updates to be rolled out in phases via fast or slow rings
Identify, replace or update shadow IT

Microsoft Endpoint Manager

This collection of tools, including Microsoft Intune, Autopilot & System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), lets you manage devices and applications and enforce policies remotely. Goal: Standardise, secure and better secure access to corporate data.

Do you already have a Microsoft 365 Business Premium or E3 licence? Then you already have Endpoint Manager!

Will you choose MDM or MAM?
Balance between ease of use & safety

Are employees allowed to bring their own devices (BYOD)? Or are both laptops and smartphones 100% kept within management? To protect corporate data, you will have to choose between MDM or MAM anyway:

Mobile Device Management

MDM: full control over devices

If you provide smartphones and/or laptops for your staff yourself, it is advisable to manage their devices entirely remotely:
  • Push Apps, settings, certificates...
  • Delete the entire device in case of theft
  • Set restrictions (e.g. no games)
  • Full control of device & OS
  • Force security measures such as PIN or biometrics
But not desirable for private devices.

Mobile application management

Only control over specific apps

You can hardly expect people to hand over their private devices completely. With MAM, you manage specific apps remotely once colleagues log into them with their company credentials. That way, at least company data is well protected:
  • Company apps like Outlook can be managed
  • Enforce PINs on company apps
  • Limit exporting/saving files
  • You cannot push certificates, settings or apps
A golden mean for BYOD environments

Scappman simplifies & automates both installations and updates of applications via Microsoft InTune

Usually, pushing (updates of) apps via MDM takes a lot of time: downloading, extensive testing, ensuring security, packaging, digital signing... Scappman simplifies this process

It works through your Azure AD account. After you give it one-time permissions on InTune to manage your tenant with, you can get started. So it is not an additional application that needs to run on all your devices.

Where does ScappMan complement Microsoft InTune?

Auto-Packaging

Scappman scans app vendor websites for updates and automatically 'packages' them. After an extensive test cycle, these are also pushed to your Intune environment.*

Update Rings

You don't always want everyone to get the same update immediately. By putting users in Fast (now) and Slow Rings (e.g. 10 days), you can test thoroughly and intervene in time before rolling out a full release. **

Auto-update

With Intune, you can build a Company App Portal. But installed apps are otherwise not automatically updated. With Scappman, these apps too are automatically updated with the latest versions.

First a notification

When Intune updates apps, it will close the application without notice, which can be a very annoying experience for users ... With Scappman, it first asks whether or not to install now or later.

Push to groups

Not everyone needs to have certain applications. With Scappman, you can define groups, sparing other users from bloatware.

Dependencies

Some applications only work if, for example, a specific .net or Visual C++ version is also installed. This can be provided via Scappman

Installation scripts

Check out the scripts Scappman uses to run installations in the background. You can also modify these scripts to change specific parameters or make targeted changes.

Shadow-IT

If colleagues are free to install software, you at least want these applications to stay up to date as well. Scappman can provide that too.

Reporting

With clear dashboards and useful reports, you track which installations went well, but more importantly: where things possibly went wrong and why. in Intune, that's a really complex process + long waits to receive those log files.

Scappman can do much more and gives numerous configuration options.
View for sure our webinar to see how comprehensive & simple it works.

* Public third-party apps will be packaged by Scappman completely free of charge. But also (updates for) your own apps can be packaged for you -as a service- by Scappman so you can save time and work. ** Of course, in case of zero-days or serious vulnerabilities, you can push a release globally right away.
