Microsoft has unveiled its second public beta for Windows Intune, an IT management platform with cloud-based tools for network management tasks. As reported on eWeek, Windows Intune gives IT administrators a highly granular level of control over a network, with a dashboard that monitors the status and security of a network’s PCs.
“‘The goal of this beta is to gather the feedback we need to ensure a quality final release—so we ask that you only sign up for this beta if you are able to test it on at least five PCs,’ Alex Heaton, group product manager for Windows Intune, wrote July 12 on The Windows Blog. ‘Windows Intune will include the cloud management service with integrated anti-malware (AV and anti-spyware) plus Windows 7 Enterprise upgrade rights.'”
