Managed Mobility - Taming the Beast
Managing mobility presents so many challenges previously not seen in the enterprise. There are a wide range of devices to manage but, more importantly, corporate boundaries have disappeared.IT admins are now driven by the demands of tech-savvy users who want to be able to work from anywhere at any time. Applications and data can no longer be secured behind layers and layers of security.
Ergo leverage the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) to “tame this beast”. With EMS, Microsoft have adopted a holistic approach to tackling this problem. It enables organisations to perform user identity, device, application and content management, regardless of where in the world the user is accessing data. EMS is actually a SKU consisting of three products:
• Azure Active Directory Premium (user identity)
• Microsoft Intune (mobile application and device management)
• Azure Rights Management Services (information protection)
The feature set provided by the combination of these components is impressive. Ergo have implemented the solution for many customers and we are able to customise each deployment to satisfy the specific requirements. Configuration policies can be deployed to iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices. Conditional Access, Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) and enhanced security monitoring and reporting help to protect our customers from security breaches.
The rapid adoption of Windows 10 devices has introduced new management requirements for our customers. This is a major development focus for Intune and we are finding the solution to be a good fit to manage the wide range of devices.
Microsoft have also committed to a rapid cadence of feature releases. Ergo will continue to adopt these new features to provide secure and flexible solutions for our customers. There is much more to come.
