Microsoft Intune brings mobile threat defense to unenrolled BYO devices

Microsoft is excited to announce that device-risk based app protection integration with mobile threat defense vendors is now available to unenrolled devices, such as bring-your-own (BYO) device users or others where the device itself is not managed. We worked closely with our partners to create a seamless and intuitive experience for setup on an end user device.


This capability is initially rolling out with our partners Lookout for Work, Better Mobile and Zimperium. In future, we expect other partners to add support for this integration.


This new capability is a unique advantage to Intune customers that is not yet available with other EMMs. While other solutions require the device to be enrolled and managed for this security feature to work, Microsoft Intune extends the zero-trust security perimeter to all protected users, including both enrolled and unenrolled mobile devices running apps protected by Intune app protection policies.
