Support Endpoint Protection on Windows 10 Pro
Simple really. Windows 10 Pro supports bitlocker. Therefore if we're paying for Intune, it seems reasonable to be able to manage bitlocker on those devices.
How are we supposed to migrate from the Silverlight version of Intune to Azure Intune when Windows 10 Pro is not supported?! Any advice Microsoft?! You have decided to deprecate the current Intune but yet you are not supporting Windows 10 Pro for the Azure version. SMBs do not have Windows 10 Enterprise FYI. I think you are going to lose some customers from this decision.... just saying. I would bump this to the top of your backlog.
This is crazy signed up to EMS+3 with the misguide purpose of protecting our business to find that many feature don't work with Windows 10 Pro. Microsoft why do continue to frustrate your user base ? Not every business is a fortune 500 with enterprise desktops. Get real

In order to get get the BitLocker feature you have to either purchase W10 Pro or pay the $99 upgrade cost from W10 Home. So it would stand to reason BitLocker would support for W10 Pro devices using Intune. Microsoft's rationale requiring W10 Enterprise only serves to infuriate their customers.

Needs to be added !!!!
Really needs to be made available for Windows 10 Pro. Can Microsoft please comment on whether this is being looked at?

@tim https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/endpoint-protection-windows-10 states that Bitlocker deployment via Intune is not available in Win10 Home & PRO.
What limitation are you talking about? My devices Join AD and are integrated into intune MDM automatically, part of our intune policy is that we require bitlocker which is enabled at AD Join. All bitlocker keys are then available by device in the Azure portal.
Please can someone confirm if this will be looked at?

I cannot understand those limitations, isn't the PRO version of windows ment for businesses or do we really have to pay for enterprise editions?
