Secure and manage Dynamics 365 for phones and tablets
Applies To: Dynamics 365 (online), Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016, Dynamics CRM Online
The information provided here is for versions of Dynamics 365 prior to Dynamics 365 (online), version 9.0. For the latest documentation, see Overview of securing and managing Dynamics 365 for phones and tablets.
You can secure and manage Microsoft Dynamics 365 for phones and Microsoft Dynamics 365 for tablets with the following technologies:
Microsoft Intune. You can use Microsoft Intune to manage Dynamics 365 for phones and Dynamics 365 for tablets on Apple and Android tablets and phones. Intune provides mobile device management, mobile application management, and PC management capabilities from the cloud. Using Intune, you can provide your users with access to corporate applications, data, and resources from virtually anywhere on almost any device, while helping to keep corporate information secure.
This feature was introduced in CRM Online 2016 Update.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Good. Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Good, integrated with Good Dynamics, protects your Dynamics 365 data even if your users lose or leave their mobile devices somewhere. For example, if someone leaves their device in a taxi cab and can’t get it back right away, Dynamics 365 data is protected by Good encryption. If someone loses their device entirely, all they have to do is notify you so you can remotely wipe Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Good data from their device.
This feature was introduced in CRM Online 2015 Update and CRM 2015 (on-premises).

Manage Dynamics 365 on mobile devices with Microsoft Intune
If your organization is set up with Intune, you can use it to manage the Dynamics 365 for phones and tablets apps on Apple, Android, and Windows 10 tablets and phones. Intune manages encryption at the device level, as well as app-to-app communications. With Intune, you can selectively wipe managed apps and related data on devices that are unenrolled, no longer compliant, lost, stolen, or retired from use.
With CRM Online 2016 Update 1, you can use Intune mobile application management (MAM) to manage Dynamics 365 mobile applications for Apple and Android without enrolling the device. This protects company data in Dynamics 365 without requiring you to enroll and deeply manage the end user's entire device. This is particularly useful for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) scenarios where end users don’t want to or can’t enroll their devices for IT management. This capability is also useful if a device is already enrolled in another mobile application management solution.

Set up conditional access to Dynamics 365 (online)
You can use System Center Configuration Manager conditional access to manage access to Dynamics 365 from mobile devices based on conditions you specify. For more information about setting up conditional access, see Conditional Access in Configuration Manager.
To use conditional access, you must have an Azure Active Directory premium subscription.
This feature was introduced in CRM Online 2016 Update 1 and CRM 2016 Service Pack 1 (on-premises).
