Intune Endpoint Manager\SCCM - Remove unused applications (Google, FireFox etc.)

Ben Woodman 106 Reputation points


I was wondering is someone had any ideas for the below question, anything will be great.

We need a solution that will monitor application usage and then remove the application if not used for a set period of time.

For example, if FireFox is not used for 3 months or so then uninstall the application, it means we can keep more on top of the security of our devices (FireFox updates when opened and closed etc. - If not used then it will not update) but also means we can keep on top of licenses if a licensed application is not used we SCCM or Intune will remove the application.

I am asking regarding SCCM and Intune but if there is another 3rd party solution or plugin then please do let me know.

Kind regards,

    Which do you have intune or sccm, there is a big difference? Which 3rd party tools have you looked at so far? Have you looked at software metering in sccm?
