I know that connecting an Exchange account to an iPhone can give the Exchange administrators the ability to force a Passcode change or remotely wipe the device, but is this possible on a Macbook/OS X/macOS client?

The only supported devices for remote wipe are: Android, iOS, Windows. macOS is not supported.

inTune features for macOS are listed here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-au/intune-user-help/using-your-ios-or-macos-device-with-intune

  • Is OS X and macOS interchangeable? ie, do they have the same version continuum? – cottsak Aug 2 '17 at 0:42

    I believe Apple retroactively renamed Mac OS X and OS X to macOS. – user11633 Aug 2 '17 at 0:48

    Usually. Apple did a brand name change for Sierra 10.12 to macOS (effectively rewinding the o.s. marketing back to 1997!), previous versions ≤10.11 were Mac OS X or OS X. MS InTune supports 10.9+ – sansSpoon Aug 2 '17 at 0:50
  • @sansSpoon These links are not very conclusive to me. How do I know my company uses Intune/MDM and how can I be certain that simply connecting a calendar on my Mac will give the Exchange tools the ability to remote wipe (or not)? – cottsak Aug 2 '17 at 0:52
  • It will all depend on what parts of Exchange and InTune your I.T. department are running and if they are using profiles. As far as I know there is no way to tell what profiles are in use until you join the domain. – sansSpoon Aug 2 '17 at 1:25
