Device security


Mobile Threat Defense partner Zimperium is now available in GCC High tenants


Zimperium is now available as a Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) partner in US GCC High environments.

With this support, you’ll find the Intune connector for Zimperium as available in the list of MTD connectors that you can enable in your GCC High tenant.

The GCC High environment is a more regulated environment, and only connectors for those MTD partners that are supported for the GCC High environment are available in it. For more information about support in GCC High tenants, Microsoft Intune for US Government GCC High and DoD service description.


Manage the app inventory data for iOS/iPadOS devices that Intune sends to third-party MTD partners


You can now configure the type of application inventory data for personally-owned iOS/iPadOS devices that Intune sends to your chosen third-party Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) partner.

To control the app inventory data, configure the following setting as part of the MDM Compliance Policy Settings on the Mobile Threat Defense connector for your partner:

  • Send full application inventory data on personally-owned iOS/iPadOS Devices Options for this setting include:

  • On - If your MTD partner syncs app data and requests a list of the iOS/iPadOS applications from Intune, that list includes unmanage apps (those not deployed through Intune) in addition to those deployed through Intune. This is the current behavior.

  • Off - Data about unmanaged apps won’t be provided, and the MTD partner only receives details about apps that were deployed through Intune.


For corporate devices, data about managed and unmanaged apps continues to be included with requests for app data by your MTD vendor.

Deprecated status in Group Policy Analytics migration readiness report automatically reevaluates your GPOs


Using Group Policy Analytics, you can import your Group Policy Objects (GPOs) to see the settings that are supported in MDM providers, including Microsoft Intune. It also shows any deprecated settings, or settings not available to MDM providers.

The Intune product team updates the mapping logic. When the updates happen, the deprecated settings are automatically reevaluated. Previously, you had to reimport your GPOs.

For more information on Group Policy Analytics and the reporting, see Analyze your on-premises group policy objects (GPO) using Group Policy analytics in Microsoft Endpoint Manager.

Enforce Azure AD terms of use with Microsoft Intune or Microsoft Intune Enrollment cloud apps

This functionality is available when you select Setup Assistant with modern authentication as your authentication method. Both cloud apps now ensure that users accept the terms of use during enrollment and/or during Company Portal sign-in if required by your conditional access policy.
