Set up Mobile Threat Defense in Sophos Mobile

In the first step to set up Mobile Threat Defense, you bind Sophos Mobile to your Intune account and configure enrollment settings.

Note If you follow the instructions in Add and assign Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) apps with Intune, you first create the Sophos Mobile Threat Defense connector in Intune and then switch to Sophos Mobile to complete the configuration. That is an alternative approach to the one described here.
  1. In Sophos Central Admin, go to Mobile.
  2. On the menu sidebar, under SETTINGS, select Setup > Sophos setup, and then select the Intune MTD tab.
  3. Select Bind.
  4. Sign in with your Microsoft Azure administrator account.
  5. Accept the permissions requested by Sophos Mobile Threat Defense.
  6. Configure the following settings:
