Many times over the last year I have been asked the question, “What is Windows Intune?” I like to describe Windows Intune as the cloud service that helps you centrally manage and secure your PCs through a simple, web-based console. Released back in March 2011, Windows Intune has already had a major Update on October 17th, 2011. Why should any IT Pro consider using Windows Intune? Well, I came up with these top 10 reasons (there are many more, but let’s start with 10).
