So there’s been lots of announcements at Ignite this year and it doesn’t seem like Microsoft is able to cover everything in their official blog.. Hence why I’m writing a blog to make sure you heard of the new features I find really important.
1. Geo-Fencing for Intune managed devices. Geo-Fencing defined on a map will be available in Public Preview from Q4 2017, with ability to set up alerts when a device leaves the perimeter. A location can also be based on known networks.
2. Full capabilities with Outlook Mobile for companies running Exchange Hybrid. Available for preview through Microsoft’s Technical Adoption. It uses Exchange Online functionality to synchronize On-Prem mailboxes in the cloud for 30 days, the mailboxes are protected equal to Office 365 mailboxes and the whole feature is based on communication between Exchange server and ExOnline. The announcement was made on Ignite and the Exchange blog which many EM+S admins don’t read.

3. Access Intranet resources through Application Proxy and Managed Browser. By publishing internal resources through Azure Application Proxy users can access those sites externally directly through Managed Browser, protected by the container technology built into the Managed Browser. Company Admins can easily enforce policies and revoke access.
