Microsoft Endpoint Manager announces support for Windows Virtual Desktop machines

With Windows Virtual Desktop, you can move from a simple Proof-of-Concept (PoC) to a fully operational environment faster than ever before. This week, Microsoft announced several new capabilities that make it even easier to deploy, secure and scale your virtual desktop deployments. These new capabilities will be available as public preview by the end of the year.

Microsoft Endpoint Manager customers can leverage our integration with Windows Virtual Desktop to help manage and operate their deployments efficiently and accelerate the move to a secure remote work solution.

You can now enroll Windows Virtual Desktop Virtual Machines that are  hybrid Azure AD joined (joined to your on-premises Active Directory and registered with your Azure Active Directory) with Microsoft Intune and manage them in the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center the same way as physical devices. This simplifies management, provides a centralized view across both physical devices and virtual desktops and opens up new areas of collaboration. The Endpoint Manager integration is generally available for Windows 10 Enterprise desktops. The public preview for Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session is coming later this year and will initially support policies at device specific scope.
