Integration with

to respond to mobile threats

CylancePROTECT Mobile
app adds support for integration with
Microsoft Intune
. The UI to configure integration with

will be added to the management console later in December 2021.
You can connect
Cylance Endpoint Security
to
Microsoft Intune
to enable
Cylance Endpoint Security
to report a device risk level to
Intune
. The device risk level is calculated based on the detection of mobile threats by the
CylancePROTECT Mobile
app on
Intune
managed devices.
Intune
can execute mitigation actions based on the device risk level.
