Intune and Autopilot

Preconfigure with Microsoft Autopilot

The simple zero-touch deployment solution

Included out the box with Surface, Autopilot configures device settings, rules, applications, and anything else your employees need to be ready for business. It works entirely in the cloud so there’s no physical infrastructure to deal with, and is used in conjunction with Intune, which is the MDM software you need to manage the devices over the long run.

With Autopilot, you can reset, repurpose, and recover devices with ease to minimise downtime and get your remote workers up to full productivity.

Manage and control with Microsoft Intune

A powerful MDM to control your devices

Intune is used to control how any Windows, Apple, or Android device is used, whether personal or corporate owned. Examples include restricting email or forcing the use of a screen lock on mobiles, and it can also integrate natively with Office 365 apps for greater control.

Intune ensures all the devices in your business comply with security requirements, and makes sure data is accessed and shared in the correct way, offering you many levels of control over the devices used by your staff.

Microsoft Intune and Autopilot FAQs

How do we automate deployment of our devices?

Your Microsoft Surface devices can take advantage of zero-touch deployment with Autopilot. This means that device hardware information is registered by HardSoft before they are shipped, so that when they reach the end user and turned on, they automatically enrolled into Microsoft Intune and applications, security policies, and other settings are automatically installed.

What can we do if a device is lost or stolen?

If any device enrolled onto Microsoft Intune becomes lost or stolen, you have the ability to remotely lock or completely wipe the device. Additionally, using Location Services built into the MDM enables you to track that device once requested.

Can we restrict a user from being an Administrator?

On the initial setup of the deployment profile we can set all users to only have Standard user rights as default with no Admin ability. If required, we are able to provide individual users with local admin rights but most will never need to be local admin which also helps protect the device.

How do we stop users installing applications that are not approved?

For users with Standard rights, only applications pushed via Microsoft Intune would be installed and managed. Users would not have the required privileges to install applications thus providing control over what applications are installed.

How do we ensure all of our devices are protected?

Microsoft Intune can ensure your Anti-Virus program is installed and you can also set a policy for all devices to enable Bitlocker drive encryption. Bitlocker recovery keys are stored for each device within Microsoft Intune. Compliance Policies are also available so you can be notified if a device becomes non-compliant.

Can we ensure our devices are up to date?

Microsoft Intune allows you to create update rings, this ensures updates are installed at specified maintenance schedules. Windows 11 can also be pushed to your devices and specify how long users can defer updates.

Is this only for Windows devices or can I enrol my Mac devices, too?

No, not at all. Intune is for every environment and can be used for Windows, Apple (including iOS and iPadOS), and Android devices.
