Mobile devices are ubiquitous features of virtual collaboration in our modern world. Nonetheless, the security of tablets, smart phones and co must not be neglected.
The latest development by Microsoft goes by the name of Enterprise Mobility+Security E3/E5. It provides security features for mobile devices, for instance by incorporating single sign-on, multi-factor authentication using Active Directory Premium or the mobile device management tool InTune.
Cloud-based file tracking, encryption and additional document protection are made available in Azure Information Protection Premium.
Of course these tools can also be procured individually from third-party vendors. But in this respect I advocate a ‘best of suite’ approach instead of ‘best of breed’. Its benefits are evident in the lower management workload and in better prices by purchasing premium services as a bundle.
