Enterprise mobility suite ems
Manage users, devices, apps and data
The Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) provides a complete solution to your enterprise mobility Needs. EMS enables you to manage:
* Users with a consistent identity
* PCs and mobile devices
* Mobile, desktop and SaaS applications
* File level data protection
EMS encompasses Microsoft’s vision on mobility going forward, and goes a giant step beyond simple MDM. It is a people-first approach to identity, devices, apps, and data – and it allows you to actively build upon what you already have in place while proactively empowering your workforce well into the future In short, the EMS has three key elements:
* Hybrid identity and access management delivered by Azure Active Directory Premium
* MDM and MAM delivered by Windows Intune
* Access & Information protection delivered by Azure AD Rights Management Services
The first component helps you with “hybrid identity”. As more and more businesses and applications are moving to the cloud (think Office 365 or Google Apps for productivity, CRM Online or Salesforce for managing customer relationships, Citrix GoToMeeting for conferencing etc…), it is important to retain the same identity in the cloud as on premise. In human speak, this means that you can use these cloud applications with the same username/password than you log onto your laptop.
Mobile Device Management
The second component focusses on managing the mobile devices from which you might be accessing the aforementioned cloud applications. Known colloquially as “MDM”, EMS extends into other acronyms, too: MAM, MIM, IAM and MCM.
Access & Information Protection
The last (but certainly not least) component is centered around Access & Information Protection. The product behind this is called Azure Rights Management Services.
The general idea is to control access to documents by wrapping them in a secure container. You can only open the container if you provide your credentials from which point on you may only have read-only, do-not-print, do-not-share, … permissions.
To see what this looks like, see the following demo (as of 1:21). EMS extends this functionality to non-Windows platforms as well.
Provide users with single sign-on for access to all their corporate resources and manage those identities across your datacenter and in the cloud.
Deliver a consistent device management experience across popular platforms: Windows, Windows Phone, iOS, and Android.
Help maximize productivity with managed Office mobile apps and extend these management capabilities to line-of-business apps.
