Alert on unauthorized changes in Microsoft Intune via Log Analytics
In my last blog I showed you the new feature that allows you to send all audit events to Log Analytics.

A couple of weeks ago I had a customer already using the lightweight MDM solution in Office 365, which is built on Microsoft Intune.
