Cloud Security: Managing the Cloud with Windows Intune

Windows Intune is a new cloud-based PC management solution that can help you keep your organization’s PCs secure, updated and manageable, no matter where they’re located.

The case for cloud computing as a platform for delivering IT services is compelling for many organizations. Today's IT environments have evolved into disparate, distributed landscapes that make it harder and harder to manage using traditional on-premise tools. Typically, however, there is one common denominator: Internet connectivity. So if your IT organization faces challenges, such as an increasingly mobile workforce, road warriors, geographically widespread offices, branches or locations, you might consider cloud services.

Windows Intune is a new cloud-based PC management solution that can help you keep your organization’s PCs secure, updated and manageable, no matter where they’re located.

The Workspaces

Using the Updates Workspace, an administrator can view available Windows updates, select updates to install, target specific groups of PCs for installation, and schedule installations to occur at specified times. Anyone who has worked with Windows Server Update Services will notice similarities in the way updates are viewed and managed in Windows Intune.

When a PC is managed by Windows Intune, update management activities are routed through the service, so PCs no longer connect directly to the Windows Update service directly. Rather, the Windows Intune service obtains its listing of available updates from WU, and then presents them to the administrator for review and action. In essence, it becomes “WSUS in the cloud.”

The User Experience
The Client software also includes the “Windows Intune Center” utility, which is accessible from a shortcut on the enduser’s desktop. The Tools dialog allows the user to view his update status, access the antimalware dialog where he can choose to initiate an antimalware scan and submit requests for remote assistance.

Malware Protection
To deliver the Malware Protection capability, Windows Intune partnered with the Microsoft Endpoint Protection team. When a PC is enrolled, a check is performed to see if any third-party antimalware solution is installed. If there is, the Windows Intune Malware Protection agent will install, but will remain in a disabled state. If no antimalware solution exists, the Windows Intune Malware Protection agent will be enabled and will begin protecting the PC from malware, spyware and viruses. Malware status of all PCs is reported to the console for review by the administrator, who can view recent malware events, and jump to more detailed information about events using contextual links to Microsoft Malware Protection Center.

Monitoring and Alerts
Alerts tie many of the workspaces together, as they’re used to advise the administrator of issues such as detected malware, remote assistance requests, updates, policy and Windows Intune client health. With the Alerts Workspace, administrators can choose from a wide variety of monitoring elements and receive alerts when specified thresholds have been exceeded. Alerts can be received either through the administrator console or via e-mail to designated individuals or groups.

Windows Intune uses the System Center Operations Manager client to monitor PCs, and the output data is reported back to the Windows Intune service. Alerts can be viewed in a summary “dashboard” format for all managed computers or by category within each respective workspace. Alerts are displayed with an associated severity (informational, warning or critical) to assist administrators in prioritizing their response.

Detailed software and hardware inventory is collected by the Windows Intune Software agent. The hardware inventory is primary to aid in the identification of PCs and to provide detailed configuration information. Hardware inventory includes items such as make, model, serial number, BIOS data, CPU, hard disk, RAM and network adapter data, as well as installed video and printer drivers.

The software inventory is performed by scanning the PC’s MSI database, registry entries and Start menu. The inventory includes publisher, title, version and application language. This information is then compared against a master software catalog and can provide additional information about the software title, such as category. The catalog also serves to rationalize software titles into more consistent groupings of publishers and versions, which removes a lot of the complexity that often surfaces when viewing software inventory data.

The output of the software inventory is found in the software report, which provides a detailed sortable listing of all installed applications, including counts and categories.

Tracking Microsoft Volume License agreements is a complex and demanding task. The Licenses Workspace allows organizations to upload their volume license agreement numbers into the service, which are then used to retrieve all the associated entitlement data from the Microsoft Volume License Service. The entitlement data can be refreshed at any time to ensure accurate information. This entitlement data is then used in a reconciliation report and compared against installed quantities. The results are available in the License report, which can be produced at any time and exported for offline storage. It should be noted that this data is private, can only be viewed by the customer, and is not used to enforce compliance.

Note that the Policy workload in Windows Intune does not replace Group Policy, nor does it offer a parity of features—yet. The Policy Workspace allows administrators to configure Malware Protection and Update settings, customize the Windows Intune Client Tools dialog to display specific support contact information, and define end-user firewall configurations.

For example, with this workspace, an administrator can push policy to managed computers that determines how often Malware scans take place and what kind of scan to perform (quick or full) and how often a PC checks for updates and when those updates are installed.

Rest assured that if you have Group Policies in place in your environment, your GPOs will always take precedence, so no conflicts should occur.

Remote Assistance
To round out the workspaces, a Remote Assistance feature is included. One of the most time-consuming tasks an administrator has is supporting endusers, which often involves physically visiting the PC to assist in troubleshooting end-user issues. Endusers can use the Windows Intune Tools dialog that’s available on their desktop to submit a request for assistance. Remote Assistance in Windows Intune is delivered in partnership with Microsoft Easy Assist, which is a hosted service, which is part of Microsoft Live Meeting.

When an end user makes a request, an alert is sent to the Windows Intune service. This alert can also be configured to send an e-mail to a designated individual, which can be set up in the Administration area of the console. When administrators accept the request, they’re joined to a remote desktop sharing session with the end users and can see their desktops. Upon consent of the end user, the administrator can assume control of the end users’ desktops to help them with the issues they’re having.

The ability to transfer files from one computer to the other and to chat with the enduser is also included in this feature.
