As a small to medium-sized enterprise, you might have already made the (very clever) move to Office 365, which allows you to be more productive in a complete mobile experience. Once you’ve made this move a concern begins to crop up around the security of your business in this new mobile space, and rightly so.
The first thought when it comes to mobile security is around the security of the device. This is not the only point of focus when it comes to mobile security, though. We need to look at the whole mobile experience.
At the core of many high-profile enterprise security failings is identity. How does one go about securing identity? We’re often faced with the challenge of removing the reliance on usernames and passwords for access. The good news is that this is actually the control plane at the center of Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS).
The Enterprise Mobility Suite allows for identity and access management (with Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium), mobile device and app management (with Microsoft InTune), information protection (with Microsoft Azure Rights Management Premium) and behaviour-based threat analytics (with Advanced Threat Analytics).
Microsoft EMS protects the entire mobile experience against modern security threats:
- Securing identities
- Securing the device
- Securing data
- Securing the connection
In securing all four of these pathways, as an SME you can be comforted with a complete mobile security solution.
