|Windows Intune Licensing and Purchasing Options|
|Monday, 13 June 2011|
Windows Intune, a new subscription-based offering for Windows client PCs (i.e., not servers), uses online services hosted in Microsoft data centers to provide PC management and malware protection. Sold as a per-device license, Intune is available through three different purchase programs. Depending on a customer's license requirements and number of PCs, some will have one option and some will have multiple ways to purchase Intune. The fact that Intune is licensed per-device and Office 365, its sister online service, is licensed per-user may introduce complexity for some customers by requiring them to manage two different licensing models.
