Microsoft EMS?

Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EM+S) is Microsoft’s latest addition to the mobile device management (MDM) market.

The suite utilises Microsoft Azure Active Directory, Azure Rights Management, Microsoft Intune, and Advanced Threat Analytics to provide businesses with cost-effective, comprehensive security for users, devices, applications, and data.

So what does this mean for your business?

In this day and age, users expect to be able to work from anywhere and have access to all of their work resources whether they’re at home, in the office or on the road. And with the advent of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), this brings additional challenges for business owners when it comes to security. Deploying and managing applications across platforms is difficult, and your employees need to be productive while maintaining compliance and reducing risk …

... Protecting your data shouldn’t make it harder for workers to get their jobs done.

Which is where EM+S comes in…

Providing layered protection against data theft. EM+S helps bring secure, flexible access to company resources and improves BYOD security to reduce risk and boost employee productivity.

Control access to client data
EM+S lets you implement multi-factor authentication (MFA) to help prevent unauthorised access to data and devices. You can secure information across file servers, email, and collaboration platforms with document tracking and encryption.

Lock down devices used by mobile workers
Ensure all devices and applications are up to date to help protect against vulnerabilities. EM+S enables the enforcement of corporate security policies on both company-owned and personal devices to ensure data is secure, even if devices are lost or stolen. Remote wipe and remote lock features give admins the ability to remotely lock devices if they're lost or stolen, and reset the password if the user forgets it.

Prevent cyber-attack
EM+S will identify attacks before data is compromised using behaviour-based analytics that leverage Machine Learning to inspect all network traffic.

Single Sign-On
Enable single sign-on (SSO) so workers only need one password to access all the applications they need, from wherever they’re working - centralising access to reduce risk.

Unsecured company data can cost millions in lost research, regulatory fines, or litigation settlements – not to mention damage that many small business never recover from.
