    Hello @svjs-0437 !

    Hope you are having a Great Day!

    Microsoft Intune provides Encryption for your Android device.
    You can visit the documentation via the link mentioned below
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/intune/user-help/encrypt-your-device-android

    For IOS devices, I would suggest you to visit here.

    The answer here ultimately depends on your definition of "provides". Intune is a management platform, it doesn't provide any capabilities, it just manages existing capabilities in the managed platforms.

    iOS provides native device and file system encryption, but this is not manageable as all iOS devices are all encrypted, and this cannot be disabled.

    Android also provides its own ability to encrypt devices and filesystems on them. Exact capabilities and whether or not this is enabled by default depends on each vendor and device though so you need to consult your vendor for this info. As noted in the first link posted by @Taz-3478, Intune can manage this if the device supports it.
