The Enterprise Mobility Suite is the new Black(EMS) is the new black!
In the new world with modern devices being used more and more in daily work, managing them or actually what it all is about managing the information that is on them and providing secure access to the information they are to be able to consume. EMS is a bundling of three cloud services that together represents the bundle Enterprise Mobility Suite. The three services are:
- Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium
- Windows Intune
- Microsoft Azure Rights Management
Here is an introduction EMS that is a great place to start.
Some of us has been using or at least have evaluated Windows Intune for a while now to manage our clients or modern devices with i, Azure AD is new has a lot of cool features. In this post I would like to focus on the Coolest if you ask me and probably least adopted technology as it has been around for a long time Microsoft Azure Rights Management.
OK, so Azure Rights Management has not been around for a long time but the technology it build upon has been around for more that ten years. The reason why it is not implemented that frequently is of course that it requires a lot of work to classify data and now what data to protect. But in our Mobile first and cloud first world I would really like to stress that this is the most important feature for me at least. What is most important, it is of course the data itself.
Many times when I have demoed, or made presentations on Windows Intune as a mobile device management solution, I have been asked “how do I protect my data?” The answer has been ADRMS, now that these are bundled together I truly believe this will take customers view on Device Management solutions to a new level.
If you haven’t looked at ADRMS before I really suggest that you do. It is a really cool feature that extends the protection of you sensitive information beyond your own managed devices.
Here is a session from a colleague of mine from TechX in Sweden which is pretty cool (in Swedish though):
