Today at Microsoft Inspire in Washington DC, Microsoft unveiled Microsoft 365, a new set of commercial offerings that include Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS). Microsoft 365 delivers a complete, intelligent, and secure solution to empower employees.
To address the needs of organizations of all sizes, we introduced Microsoft 365 Enterprise for large customers, and Microsoft 365 Business for small and medium-sized businesses. They provide a comprehensive set of productivity and security capabilities while simplifying delivery and management for IT.
As part of this, EMS protects across users, devices, apps and data and is specifically designed to work together with Office 365 and Windows 10 to enable security that does not compromise user experience. EMS also secures and manages across thousands of SaaS applications, on-premises apps, as well as safeguarding data across iOS and Android devices. Most recently we integrated the management experience for IT into a single easy to use console. All this adds up to an intelligent security solution to support your organization’s digital transformation.
In the 3 years that EMS has been available, over 46 thousand organizations have chosen EMS and our install base has seen 12 consecutive quarters of triple digit Y/Y growth. These customers have chosen EMS to secure their move to a new culture of work.
Plante Moran, one of the largest certified public accounting and business advisory firms in the United States, chose EMS to enable productivity and security:
“We were using Good for Enterprise to manage and secure mobile email access, but that was just managing email, not devices,” says Sean Bulger, End User Systems Administrator at Plante Moran. “We wanted to go beyond that, so our professional staff could access all kinds of information, not just email, from any place and any device, while maintaining a strong level of security.”
G&J Pepsi-Cola Bottlers uses EMS to centrally manage and protect devices and an expanding portfolio of on-premises and cloud-based applications and services:
“We needed to provide single sign-on for ADP [payroll services], for Oracle, for Meraki, for all of these software-as-a-service solutions that we have. We also needed to secure our mobile devices and push applications to them. We’ve completely transformed the way our business operates.”
Eric McKinney, Cloud Services Manager at G&J
Gränges, a leading global manufacturer, relies on research and development to stay a leader and data security is a high priority. That’s why the Swedish manufacturer turned to Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS).
“We sleep better at night knowing that the information is not accessible for parties who shouldn’t access it. It’s important for us to be sure that we can secure business critical data that we don’t want to share with everybody else.”
Bilal Chebaro: Chief Information Officer, Gränges
