Does PolicyPak Enterprise Edition or PolicyPak Professional Edition REPLACE or ENHANCE an MDM service like Intune?
PolicyPak isn’t trying to do what an MDM service like Intune or Workspace ONE does.
Therefore, PolicyPak Enterprise Edition and PolicyPak Professional Edition enable you to use YOUR MDM service if you wish to deploy real Group Policy settings plus all of PolicyPak’s special management and security settings. You can get the gist of how we do this in about two minutes here: https://www.policypak.com/licensing-faqs/how-does-policypak-and-my-existing-mdm-service-work-together/
Additionally, PolicyPak Enterprise Edition and PolicyPak Professional Edition comes with an additional entitlement to the PolicyPak Cloud service… which is NOT an MDM service. It is a client (agent) based system specific for Windows 10.
The PolicyPak Cloud service is instead an advanced method to deliver both Group Policy and PolicyPak settings thru the cloud. In this way, some customers will:
- Use MDM for some functions, and deploy PolicyPak settings via the MDM method. (Example technical video: https://kb.policypak.com/kb/article/482-policypak-and-microsoft-intune/)
- Use MDM for some functions, and bootstrap the installation of PolicyPak Cloud then use (Example technical video: https://kb.policypak.com/kb/article/1064-policypak-cloud-mdm-services-install-cloud-client-automatically-join-ppc-groups-and-get-policy/)
- Use PolicyPak Cloud as the exclusive method for Group Policy and PolicyPak settings; that is, they never use (or stop using) an MDM solution because PolicyPak Cloud does everything they need. (Example technical video: https://kb.policypak.com/kb/article/471-policypak-cloud-quickstart/)
So, PolicyPak Enterprise Edition and PolicyPak Professional Edition with its ability to use YOUR MDM service and our ability to use OUR Cloud service isn’t trying to replace your MDM service… unless that’s explicitly what you want to do.
