Microsoft launches Enterprise Mobility Suite

On the same day that Microsoft revealed its Microsoft Office for iPad app and free Office Mobile apps for iPhone and Android devices, it also announced the launch of its Enterprise Mobility Suite at a press address in San Francisco

Building on Satya Nadella’s message of Microsoft being a ‘mobile first, cloud first’ company, the Enterprise Mobility Suite is a comprehensive cloud solution that addresses the consumerisation of IT, bring-your-own-device trends and the challenges of software-as-a-service.

The suite includes Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium, Windows Intune and Microsoft Azure Rights Management, and according to Brad Anderson, Microsoft’s corporate vice president for Cloud and Enterprise, the three key elements of the EMS are identity and access management, mobile data management and mobile application management, and data protection.

“The EMS is the most comprehensive and complete platform for organisations to embrace these mobility and cloud trends,” said Anderson. “Looking across the industry, other offerings feature only disconnected pieces of what is needed. When you examine what Microsoft has built and what we are delivering, EMS is simply the only  solution that has combined all of the capabilities needed to fully enable users in this new, mobile, cloud-enabled world.”

More information on the components of Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility Suite can be found on Microsoft’s In The Cloud blog page.
