Implement Microsoft Windows Store for Business and Windows 10 Mobile

Today I would like to show you how the newly available Microsoft Windows Store for Business works, and how you implement it for your Windows 10 Mobile users.
The most interesting part for Businesses with the new Store is the fact, that end users do not longer need a Microsoft Account (which is the former Live-ID or MSN Account long time ago), instead they can download and install applications from the store with their Organizational or what I would call them with the Azure Active Directory Account.
To activate the Business Store for your Azure Tenant, you will need to have an Account with the Global Administrator permission (Source). With this account, you can go on to this Location and sign-up for the Business Store. Continue reading

SCCM 2012 – Configure Exchange On-Premise Conditional Access with Microsoft Intune

Hi Reader,

referring to my old Blogpost, where I described the Integration of the Conditional Access in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager for Exchange Online (Link) and because there was an Update with the Intune Extension to support the On-Premise Exchange Server aswell, I decided to create a new blogpost about this.

The Supported Exchange Versions are currently 2010 and 2013, be sure suing one of them with a current Update Rollup (afaik for 2013 UR6 is required).
And you can use the conditional Access to restrict the EAS connection on the following Devices:
•Windows 8 and later (when enrolled with Intune)
•Windows Phone 8 and later
•Any iOS device that uses an Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) email client
•Android 4 and later. Continue reading
