These instructions provide an overview of how to install KSP with the following UEM. Always check your UEM's specific documentation for the most up to date instructions.

Step 1: Microsoft Intune - Add to UEM

Microsoft Intune (Intune) is a cloud-based enterprise mobility management (EMM) service that helps you manage and secure your mobile devices, apps, and the information available to users in your network. You can access Intune in the Microsoft Azure portal. Intune supports KSP. This section provides instructions on how to set up KSP in Intune.

Before you begin

Before you begin, however, ensure that you have:

  3. Enrolled eligible devices and applied any necessary enterprise policies.

For more information on logging in to and setting up Intune, see Microsoft Intune documentation.
