Can Intune allow 3rd-party apps to proxy into internal company resources?


  • My question is a bit unusual, but I'm trying to see if Microsoft Intune is able to allow 3rd-party apps from the Apple iOS or Google Play store the ability to "proxy" into a company's internal network to access data stored on a system supported by the 3rd-party app. I'm not too familiar with Intune itself, but I know Citrix Receiver does something like this and I'm also thinking the 3rd-party apps can be locked down with policies set in Intune? Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks!

  • Intune is an MDM solution -- it manages the devices. It does not provide connectivity. For that you'll need a VPN client (there are application initiated VPNs in iOS that Intune can manage) or a reverse proxy like Azure App Proxy.

  • Hello,

    Intune doesn't provide the ability to "Proxy" into on-premise network. You must use VPN products, such as Cisco, Citrix and CheckPoint to achieve that.

    However, Intune does provide the restriction policies to apps. For example, you can block the specific apps from installing or running on the devices. Also, you can even isolate the data between the managed apps by Intune and personal apps. 

    More details about Intune, please read the following documentation.

    Best regards,

  • If I do not have a VPN solution in my organization so I can not use the Per application VPN?

    is there a way to expose some client application in a secure manner?
