You may have missed this tiny bit of security-minded Microsoft news amidst the veritable flurry of scoops that have arisen as a result of Windows 11 leaking to the masses, but do note that Microsoft is, in fact, doing things outside of developing a new operating system. For example: It’s improving its Defender for Endpoint mobile app.
Though the changelog isn’t massive, it’s certainly enough to justify Microsoft’s blog post on the update. Here are the major feature updates and key takeaways you should be aware of:
- Mobile application management support for non-Intune enrolled devices
- Jailbreak detection available for iOS
- Simplified onboarding for iOS users
- Microsoft Tunnel VPN integration
As for other items, such as the simplified onboarding update, now end users won’t need to handle VPN permissions; that can all be dealt with on the admin side.
Beyond the four major functionality changes, there’s also the aesthetic update to Microsoft Defender for Endpoint’s mobile app to take note of. Microsoft says the visual tweaks are designed to make the app and its features more understandable and helpful.
