Let’s learn how to configure Intune RBAC for Windows drivers policy creation, and deployment management. By creating RBAC Role for Windows Drivers using the step-by-step process, you can assign roles with appropriate permissions, restricting access to sensitive settings and actions.
Configuring Intune Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) for Windows driver management is essential for effective and secure device management in modern organizations. RBAC allows administrators to grant specific permissions to individuals or groups, ensuring that only authorized personnel can create and manage policies for Windows driver updates.
Windows driver and firmware update management policies and reports in Intune allow you to efficiently keep your Windows drivers up to date without needing manual or scripted tasks. This robust RBAC setup ensures smoother operations, reduces the risk of unauthorized changes, and enhances overall security.
