How you can level the playing field with Microsoft Intune:
Microsoft Intune is unique because it’s an end-to-end Microsoft solution that brings together Windows cloud services for PC management and endpoint protection with a Windows 7 or Windows 8 Enterprise upgrade subscription. With the easy-to-use web-based console, you get immediate insight into your PC environment and can view update and malware status, alerts, security policies, and more. You just need an Internet connection and the Microsoft Intune client installed on each PC you wish to manage.
Centrally manage the deployment of the Microsoft updates and service packs that you choose to all your PCs from the Microsoft Intune console—freeing up your IT staff from routine management tasks.
