Enterprise Mobility + Security Tips

Get intelligent security, built in:

Digital disruption is reshaping today’s business landscape with new risks and opportunities. In a world of accelerated change, organizations need new solutions for collaboration and mobility. At the same time, they face rising pressure to protect not only privacy and data but also apps and devices. Microsoft’s Cyber Defense Operations Center reports that in 2016 alone, more than 3 billion customer records were breached globally. Cyberattacks have become increasingly aggressive and sophisticated, spurring a demand for new protection strategies.

Integrating Windows 10, Office 365, and Enterprise Mobility + Security, Microsoft 365 enables secure collaboration in today’s workspace. And with a Microsoft 365 powered device, which includes Windows 10 Enterprise with Office 365 ProPlus and Enterprise Mobility + Security, you can ensure the best possible experience.

“To perform well in a digital market, we’re empowering employees with the freedom to access and share their data on demand. And we’re using the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security solution to lay the groundwork for this new way of working.” -- Edwin Idema, IT Manager, ASICS EMEA

Get comprehensive protection

In Microsoft 365, the Enterprise Mobility + Security Suite enables organizations to pursue digital transformation while staying on top of security challenges. A Microsoft 365 powered device protected by Enterprise Mobility + Security provides a centralized way to safeguard apps and data on-premises, in the cloud, and across devices.

Gain identity-driven security

Protect data anywhere by streamlining identity management across your datacenter and the cloud. Identity-driven security protects your organization with secure single sign-on, multi-factor authentication, and risk-based conditional access. You can also save time and stay productive with self-service capabilities like password reset.

Manage mobile devices and apps

With a Microsoft 365 powered device, you can enable employees to use their favorite devices and work from anywhere while you gain peace of mind. Securely manage apps and data on iOS, Android, and Windows devices from a single portal.
