With huge players like Microsoft, Google, and Amazon constantly innovating, it can be difficult to know whether you’re missing out on high-quality products and services that could be beneficial to your business.
One such offering from Microsoft that should be on your radar is Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS). Read on to learn more about this offering and how it can ensure your organization is properly prepared to handle the security concerns that come with the proliferation of mobile devices that are being used in most growing companies.
What is Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS)
On a macro level, Microsoft EMS is a suite of products that provide the device and virtual identity management. In today’s world where much of our data is accessed via the cloud, from devices of all types in all types of locations, it’s critical that you’re utilizing a security suite that offers top-notch oversight and security.
EMS is a combination of four different Microsoft products, including:
- Microsoft Intune
- Azure Active Directory Premium
- Azure Rights Management
- Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics
Below we’ll introduce each of these individual products to give you a better sense of the breadth of tools that are at your disposal with Microsoft EMS.
Microsoft Intune is a tool that allows you to securely manage mobile devices and apps regardless of the type of device. Intune allows you to manage iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS devices from a single interface where you can ensure your company data remains safe at all times.
Azure Active Directory Premium
With Azure Active Directory Premium administrators can manage user identities and create constantly evolving access policies that are driven by Microsoft’s artificial intelligence tools. Active Directory ties in across Azure, Office 365 as well as EMS to ensure seamless identity and access management across devices.
Azure Rights Management
Azure Rights Management often referred to as Azure RMS is a cloud-based protection service that uses a variety of encryption, authorization and identity policies to keep files and email secure, across all types of devices – including mobile phones, tablets, and personal computers. Information can be not only protected while it resides within your organization but also when it leaves your organization because the data protection resides within the files themselves as opposed to only in how the data is transmitted.
Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics
According to recent data, the average cost of a data breach has now surpassed $3 million. To achieve peace of mind, Microsoft has introduced advanced threat detection to not only detect threats quicker but adapt as threats change and evolve on an almost daily basis.
Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics relies on complex behavioral analytics to establish normal baselines and quickly identify when these baselines are altered. To get started there’s no need to create complex rules and policies, simply allow the technology to adapt to the various security threats thanks to built-in artificial intelligence.
