You may have seen this week Microsoft Teams came out of Preview and went GA.  Alongside this great announcement we also announced that Teams joins the ever growing list of Application Protection Policy applications (APP), you may know APP as MAM (Microsoft Application Management).

APP allows you to control the business content of an application and ensure that data cannot be leaked out into none business applications.  For example within Teams we would prevent copy paste of data from teams to say Outlook personal or Gmail all without having to enrol our device into an MDM solution.

Teams APP within Intune works with iOS and Android.  Check out one of my previous posts around APP for more details on how to configure within Intune http://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/ukprodandcomms/?p=1465
