Microsoft released the Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) back in April 2014. This was a major announcement for Microsoft which has typically focused on traditional information workers (IWs) who sit at a desk for most of the day. The EMS is a license designed for a mobile worker who uses a range of different devices including a PC, tablet, and mobile phone. The EMS assumes that the mobile worker will take advantage of BYOD and choose to use a non-corporate device for accessing corporate data.


The EMS enables an organization to be able to embrace mobility and BYOD by address the key areas of concern and risk for all organizations:

1) User Identity and Access

2) Device Management

3) Application Management

4) Data Protection


The EMS includes the following components and capabilities:

​1) Azure Active Directory Premium ​- Cloud Identity Management
​2) Windows Intune ​- Mobile Device Management (MDM)
​3) Windows Intune ​- Mobile Application Management (MAM)
​4) Azure Rights Management Services (RMS) –  ​Email and Document Protection


Rather than purchasing piecemeal solutions, organizations can license EMS to address the challenges that come with a mobile workforce and BYOD. Instead of resisting change, IT departments can embrace new technologies, keep users happy and productive, and protect their organizations from security threats.
