Introduction to Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security

This is the first in a series of five business focused blogs designed to introduce you to Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) and how it can protect and secure you in the brave new world of mobility.

Microsoft Enterprise Mobility

There is a common misconception about what mobility is. Put simply, mobility is you, the user, not the device. You roam from device to device; from application to application; from location to location to consume different data types.

Mobility is a demand from users and from the business, for different reasons. Users want the freedom to consume applications and data from anywhere. Businesses want mobility for reasons such as BCP or even to assist with an office move.

Consider how your business has changed in the last couple of years.  What services do your users consume to enable them to do their daily jobs?  How do they consume them? How have events such as the November earthquake changed their working habits. You will probably find that your users are more mobile today.

As a real world example, when Intergen moved to our new offices in February, all staff were asked to work from home, client sites, anywhere but the old office on the final day. This was to allow for a smoother move, while continuing to be productive for our customers.

When outside the boundary of your managed sites, and out from behind the firewalls and network security, how do you ensure the following four key pillars are secure and protected?

  • People
  • Devices
  • Data and applications (information)
  • Location 

Over this series of blogs, I will be discussing how you can protect these four key pillars, starting with your People, in a way that your users will find easy to use (i.e. making it easy to do the right thing), while at the same time being secure for the business.

EMS is designed to protect and secure the things that matter to you and your business in the mobile world.

If you would like to know more about EMS, and how it can help you, please get in touch with us here at Intergen.
