can intune do all these?

Hello Experts,

I am looking for 3 things in my current environment.

1. Upgrade all the laptops to windows 10 and avoid license if Windows intune will provide license activation.
2. Avoid buying anti-virus if windows intune will provide some protection. Does Windows Intune provide anti-virus
3. To be able to publish or install applications remotely.
4. To remote control computers this service is for the support staff.

Please let me know if Intune is good for all these requirement and also if there is a sheet of reference somewhere I can use will be great.

Thanks,
LVL 5

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Points 2 to 4 should be covered to some extent, for #1 you would need something like SCCM instead;
